  • Polygon token has lost 2% in the day and 6% in a week

  • Bulls continue to defend $0.77 amid weak momentum

  • We need further price action to ascertain the potential direction for MATIC.

Polygon’s (MATIC/USD) is one of those cryptocurrencies that has endured the bear turbulence quite well. The cryptocurrency looked prime for a sustained recovery after hitting $1.30 in early November. However, a contagion of risks in the crypto sector pushed MATIC to the $0.77 support. As of press time, the token traded at $0.83, with an intraday loss of 2%.

Polygon has been exceptional in terms of onboarding projects into its ecosystem. The latest cryptocurrency news involved Nike launching an NFT marketplace on Polygon. The around-a-week-old development was welcome among the Polygon enthusiasts. Unique addresses on the network hit a record 190.95 million as of November 14. Nike’s partnership underlines big brands courting Polygon for their web3 plans. Meta is another entity that has announced plans to use Polygon for its NFT project. 

The positive developments have allowed MATIC token to stay bullish, although a weekly loss of 6% should not go unnoticed.
