Layer 2 side-chain Polygon is requiring extensive KYC (Know Your Customer) details to provide funding, investments, grants or financial support to potential partners in India, suggested media reports.

Allegedly, developers in India have recently been talking about the difficulty of acquiring funding or investment from Polygon, going as far as saying Polygon had altogether stopped funding projects in the country.

Expert take
Darshan Bathija, CEO and Co-Founder, Vauld said, “With Bitcoin dropping below $30,000, the gains made over the past few days were wiped off. Altcoins also registered a decline in the prices.”

With the US equities enduring another day of retracement, the crypto markets followed a similar path. Given the high correlation between BTC and S&P 500 index, the odds of traders remaining bullish on cryptocurrencies were lower, he added.

Polygon (MATIC) network helps Ethereum-based projects to connect and scale. MATIC is an ERC-20 token used to govern and secure the Polygon network. It is also used to pay transaction fees on the Polygon network. MATIC is currently trading at $0.6 as part of a tight channel it has been in throughout the week.

MATIC has lost about 80 per cent of its value since its all-time high in December. It has been forming a falling wedge pattern over the past month, having lost crucial trendline support at $0.96 after creating a series of lower highs since its April high of $1.5. A falling wedge is a bullish pattern.

The token has failed to break out of its trendline resistance twice in May at $0.94 and $0.68, leading to a low of $0.49 from where it bounced. Since then, it has largely moved sideways. If the downturn continues, MATIC may be retesting support at as low as $0.3 in the days ahead.

However, if Bitcoin bounces and market sentiment becomes more positive, MATIC could make a move toward the psychological level of $0.75. To gather upward momentum, MATIC needs to break out of its falling wedge pattern.

Major Levels
Resistance: $0.75, $0.78, $0.98
Support: $0.5, $0.3
