- Daily active addresses on the Polygon network are up over 116% since September 2021.
- Over 1200 projects are building in the MATIC ecosystem, and analysts are bullish on the altcoin’s price.

MATIC gears up for a new bull run ahead with stable on-chain activity
Ethereum and MATIC both noted a decline in the number of users due to high gas fees. The decline was slightly more significant for MATIC, however looking at “from” addresses in transactions on the network, Polygon has maintained high activity.
Over the past week, the Polygon network witnessed an inflow of $188 million. The network’s revenues increased week on week; daily revenue is up 15%.

We’ve been blown away by the Polygon ecosystem and the quality of its builders, so it’s amazing to see just how quickly it’s growing.

MATIC price analysis: Polygon token’s price crashes as it jumps to 19th position
- MATIC reached a daily high of $1.967 today.
- The MATIC price analysis turned bearish, dropping to a daily low of $1.6
- The nearest unbroken price support is present at $1.559
Polygon (MATIC) ranks among the top 20 biggest cryptocurrencies, rising from $0.01478 to $2.68 in the past 52 weeks. This is an extremely bullish performance shown by the MATIC token. Therefore our view on Polygon remains bullish for the long term.
MATIC’s price turned bullish on Thursday after the announcement of MATIC getting listed on the Bit2Me exchange, Spain’s largest cryptocurrency exchange. Following the creation of the weekly high early Friday, the MATIC price analysis also turned bullish as the token surpassed Chainlink in terms of market capitalization and claimed the 18th position in the market.
As per the data from CoinMarketCap, the trading volume surged by 36.72%, standing at $1.88 billion. Furthermore, the market cap of the token dropped by 9.71%, standing at $11.24 billion.
MATIC price analysis on the daily chart
MATIC price analysis on the daily chart remains bearish because the bulls are unable to keep up with the sellers who are cashing in their profits. The price action is currently testing the 50-day Moving Average while the 100-day Moving Averages remains intact as a key price zone and support level.
The prices were progressing in the upper end of the Bollinger Bands after the sudden bearish wave brought it down to the lower region, teasing an imminent breakout. If the prices break out, we will definitely see lower levels.
The RSI indicator turned bearish and is now entering the bearish region, i.e., below the 50-level. Furthermore, the MATIC price analysis also reveals that lower prices are possible since the gradient is sharply negative and selling pressure increases.
The MACD indicator witnessed a bullish divergence on the daily chart. However, this incredible surge in selling activity might help the signal line (orange) find its way above the MACD (blue) line, leading to a bearish divergence
Polygon (MATIC) snatched the 19th position from Chainlink and is now ruling the position with a dominating trading volume. However, Chainlink is also not slowing down. The two tokens will continue to battle it out as Bitcoin remains sluggish and altcoins bleed. However, as per our MATIC price analysis, this is a great time to buy the Polygon token MATIC.

Polygon network has reached out to enterprise projects looking for sovereignty, their own blockchain and don’t want to derive security from Ethereum’s scaling solutions. Mihailo Bjelic, co-founder of Polygon network, tweeted:
We're in touch with a lot of projects (many of them from the enterprise world, but not all) who want sovereignty, i.e. their own chain/L1, and simply do not want/need to derive security from Eth L1.
This is a realistic and big use case that we're addressing with Polygon SDK.— Mihailo Bjelic (@MihailoBjelic) November 24, 2021

MATIC price forms bear trap as Polygon heads to $2.6
- MATIC price develops bear trap, creating a short-squeeze opportunity for bulls.
- Key bullish entry levels are necessary to prevent a selloff.
- Downside risks remain despite bullish reversal signals.
MATIC price remains inside a broader rising wedge pattern on its candlestick chart and has struggled to find support. However, the Point and Figure chart shows that a move above $1.70 could trigger some intense buying pressure and deny bears their selloff.
MATIC price prepares for a nearly 50% price spike higher despite current downside risks
MATIC price has a long opportunity on its $0.05/3-box Reversal Point and Figure chart. The long idea is a buy stop order at $1.75, a stop loss at $1.55 and a profit target at $2.55. The entry would complete a breakout out of a double-top while simultaneously confirming a bullish Point and Figure reversal pattern known as a Bear Trap.

Buyers are not entirely out of bearish territory, however – the daily Ichimoku chart shows MATIC is very close to completing an Ideal Bearish Ichimoku Breakout entry. The 50% Fibonacci retracement at $1.53 is acting as immediate support, but failure to hold there means MATIC price could drop even lower.
MATIC price will enter a capitulation zone at or below $1.40. A close at $1.40 would position MATIC price below the Cloud, the 100% Fibonacci expansion, and the lower trendline of the rising wedge pattern. More importantly, though, the Chikou Span would be below Senkou Span B. A close at $1.40 would mean MATIC may not find support until the 161.8% Fibonacci expansion at $0.95.

The near-term bearish outlook could be mitigated if MATIC price closes above the Tenkan-Sen and Senkou Span B at $1.63. From there, the road to the Point and Figure buy stop entry is more straightforward and more probable.
