Tech view from BuyUcoin, a cryptocurrency exchange
Polygon (MATIC) loses key support. It became newsmaker of the day when 1.4 billion MATIC tokens were transferred from MATIC’s vested contract. The crypto community was spooked by the MATIC move which resulted in selling pressure.
MATIC lost its key support level as 14% of the total supply was released from the vesting contract which was clarified by the founder of Polygon as a pre-planned move.
The current price of MATCI is below $1 but it needs to break above $1.2 or find an even higher support level beyond $1.5 or else there are chances of investors leaving their positions to minimize losses.
