MATIC is the native token of Polygon that was formerly known as MATIC network. It only supports basechain on the Ethereum blockchain and is Layer 2 blockchain Unlike blockchains with scalability challenges, the Polygon blockchain completes 65,000 transactions per second in a chain, and confirms transaction within 2 seconds Prior to the migration of MATIC to its own blockchain, it was initially launched as an ERC-20 token on the Ethereum blockchain. Over 50 decentralized applications (Dapps) and decentralized finance (Defi) projects had been launched on the Polygon blockchain. What is Polygon (MATIC)? MATIC was launched on the Ethereum blockchain in 2017 before it was migrated to its own blockchain in 2019. It was cofounded by Jaynti Kanani, Sandeep Nailwal and Anurag Arjun The total supply of MATIC is 10 billion MATIC and in April 2019 launchpad, only 19% of MATIC’s total supply was sold at a rate of $0.00263 per token and $5 million was raised Let’s see the Polygon (MATIC) price analysis for the coming years. Price Analysis of Polygon (MATIC) Flashback: Fundamental Analysis of MATI With the very low fees that are used in Polygon blockchain for transaction, there has been an option for top platforms that host the buying and selling of non-fungible tokens to allow the option to use the Polygon network. For example, the OpenSea platform, allows it’s users to create and deploy for Sales NFTs with no fees. This is due to the high gas fees of the Ethereum network. Since the NFT market worth over $40 billion as at January 2022, the Polygon blockchain is attracting a host of projects in the NFT sector Though the price of MATIC plummet by over 50% from it’s all-time high value: analysts believe that once the blockchain continues to attain it’s Layer 2 goals, the price of MATIC will recover Now, let’s look at charts to see the price analysis of Polygon (MATIC). https://www.tradingview.com/x/O83wAzB3 The relative strength index for MATIC from the chart above is 39.44.

Ethereum is well on its way to the Merge as more milestones are met. The move to proof of stake will no doubt be a game-changer for the blockchain. So As the day for the merge draws closer, users of the network have been upping their activity in recent times. One of the places where Ethereum has recorded an uptick has been the staking queue which is now nearing its previous all-time high. Ethereum Staking Queue Crosses 300,000 The Ethereum staking queue is a good indicator of how users of the network are looking at it. When this is low, investors may be more way and not want to stake their coins on the network. However, when this number begins to go up, it signals a number of things for Ethereum, among them, being that users are looking more positively at it. Related Reading | TA: Bitcoin Holds Uptrend Support, What Could Trigger Sharp Decline This queue has been going up in recent times and as of 17th March, has almost reached its previous high. It had previously touched a new high above 330K in June of 2021 when the bull rally had been in full bloom. But the subsequent market downtrend had seen this number come down with it going into the bear trend. Only to begin another recovery in August of the same year. ETH price recovers above $3,900 | Source: ETHUSD on TradingView.com As for 2022, the number had been steadily growing but hadn’t seen any significant boost. This boost came about two weeks into March when the number of wallets on the queue crossed 300K. It is the sharpest increase ever recorded by the Balance Validators Status. What Does This Mean? For a network like Ethereum, beating and setting new records aren’t a new thing. But like with any other thing, such high interest will definitely have an impact on the network and the price. In this case, the number of wallets that are now suitable to stake on the network is higher and are waiting to be activated to do so. When such a large amount of wallets are given the green light to start staking, it will take a good chunk of coins out of current circulation. Related Reading | TA: Ethereum Consolidates Near $2,800, Why ETH Could Rally Again This is because it takes 32 ETH for a wallet to be eligible to become a validator on the network. This means that when these wallets on the queue are activated, about 1 million ETH coins will be locked away for at least three months, which is the minimum staking duration for Ethereum. A look at past charts shows that times like this have coincided with the increase in price for ETH. However, there has been one deviation which was during the November rally where ETH hit a new high above $4,000. Nevertheless, with such volumes of ETH being temporarily taken out of circulation, it most likely will positively affect the value of the cryptocurrency, pushing the value towards previous highs.

On-chain data shows the Bitcoin exchange reserve has lost another 50k BTC over the past week, a sign that could be bullish for the price of the crypto. Bitcoin Exchange Reserve Continues To Observe Further Decline In Recent Weeks As pointed out by an analyst in a CryptoQuant post, 50k BTC in net outflows has exited exchange wallets over the past week. The “all exchanges reserve” is an indicator that measures the total amount of Bitcoin stored in wallets of all centralized exchanges. When the value of this metric goes up, it means the supply on exchanges is rising as investors deposit a net amount of coins. Such a trend may be bearish for the price of the coin as holders usually transfer to exchanges for selling purposes. On the other hand, the reserve’s value decreasing implies that a net amount of Bitcoin is exiting exchange wallets at the moment. This kind of trend when sustained over a period can prove to be bullish for the coin’s price as it may be a sign that investors are accumulating. Related Reading | Current Stretch Of Bitcoin Fear Surpasses 2021 Selloff Now, here is a chart that shows the trend in the BTC exchange reserve over the past few months: Looks like the value of the indicator has sharply gone down recently | Source: CryptoQuant As you can see in the above graph, the Bitcoin exchange reserve has been going down over the last few months. In the past week alone, the metric has dropped 50k BTC in value. The last couple of days especially saw large downward spikes amounting to around 10k to 11k BTC. Related Reading | Mike Novogratz: Bitcoin Price To Range Between $30k-$50k Throughout The Year The exchange reserve has traditionally been considered the “selling supply” of the coin. As it has been shrinking for a while now, the effect on the price should be positive due to supply-demand dynamics. Some have referred to this decline as creating a “supply shock” in the market. However, recent data suggests that the reserve is no longer the main source of selling pressure, coins exiting from exchanges have instead just shifted into investment vehicles like ETFs. Nonetheless, the reserve declining does reduce part of the selling supply so the net effect of such a trend may still be bullish. BTC Price At the time of writing, Bitcoin’s price floats around $41k, up 5% in the past week. Over the last month, the crypto has lost 6% in value. The below chart shows the trend in the price of the coin over the past five days.
