Polygon’s MATIC token, an Ethereum scaling tool, has risen 12% in the last 24 hours, maintaining its stellar performance this year.
As of writing, the price per MATIC is now $1.14.

According to Token Terminal statistics, it is up 48% since December 31 due to an increase in daily transactions, which has pushed the blockchain to second place in terms of daily active users (DAU).

What is Polygon? (MATIC)

Polygon is a Layer 2 scaling solution based on Ethereum that seeks to make blockchain applications closer to standard web apps. Polygon makes it easy for developers to construct decentralized applications, games, and other Ethereum-based services. Developers may design dApps with a higher degree of intricacy by utilizing Polygon.

Polygon’s native token, MATIC, was introduced in 2017. Polygon uses less energy since it is based on a proof-of-stake consensus technique.
