Polygon Gets Adopted By Instagram, JP Morgan, Others

Recently, the list of companies and corporations using Polygon’s underlying technology has grown exponentially.  Polygon is ranked as one of the best-performing assets for the latter half of 2022.

Asides from Instagram’s adoption of Arweave, the blockchain-based data storage system for storing digital collectibles, the social media giant has adopted Polygon as well for its upcoming Non-Fungible Token (NFT) utilities that allow Instagram’s users to mint, collect and store NFTs on and off the social media platform.

JP Morgan, on the other hand, has taken one of the most concrete steps to the mainstream adoption of blockchain technology in traditional financial operations. The banking firm has successfully used Polygon to conduct its first $71,000 live trade on a public blockchain.

Other firms considering Polygon adoption include Disney with its 2022 accelerator program, Starbucks for its NFT loyalty program, and Robinhood with its web3 Polygon wallet.

Whales Gobble up Polygon (MATIC)

Santiment, a platform that gathers crypto intelligence based on off and on-chain metrics, in a tweet, mentioned Polygon.

In Santiment’s tweet, the market-intelligence platform noted that $100,000+ whale transactions had hit an all-time high since 11 February. They also noted whale MATIC holdings spiking by as much as 10 million MATIC in mid-October may have foreshadowed this.

Santiment also notes that since Polygon’s largest addresses (holding 10 million or more MATIC) saw a sudden jump, the cryptocurrency price has continued to grow.

Polygon (MATIC) Price Outlook 

The $1 resistance on Polygon has remained unbroken since June 2022. Since breaking this level to the downside in May, the cryptocurrency fell to a yearly low of $0.32.

Over the last day, since rising from a $0.7 low, the cryptocurrency has now breached the $1 resistance and appears to be heading to the next support zone, around $1.3.

The RSI on the daily chart shows that the cryptocurrency has crossed over into overbought territory. It also forecasts an increased likelihood of a retracement on Polygon’s part.
