What is Polygon (MATIC)?

MATIC is a native token of a Polygon platform. It is an ERC-20 token which is important because the main purpose of Polygon is to bring together Ethereum-compatible blockchains to create a multi-chain system. This will significantly change a transaction process, and make it cheaper and faster.
MATIC has two main roles in the system: to serve as payment for services within the Polygon platform and to be a settlement currency between people who operate there. In case someone wants to have this token, they would have to purchase it, because MATIC is a non-minable token. It is released monthly, and all tokens should be released by December 2022.

Historical price analysis

CoinMarketCap, 24/06/2021

All Time High: $2.68 (May 18, 2021)
All Time Low:$0.003012 (May 09, 2019)

If we take a look at the price graph, we will see that up to May 2021 MATIC had a very promising upgoing trend. However, in May and June 2021 it showed a very significant rise followed by a huge dip. One of the reasons for that may have been an attack on the TITAN token. This is a share token that belongs to Iron Finance, and it began a bridging to the Polygon protocol on May 18. At a certain point TITAN’s price rose to $65 and then fell to $0. Big investors started to withdraw their savings and that caused a bank run. Such an abnormal activity has all the chances to destabilize the system for some time.
Right now MATIC is continuing a downward trend. At the same time with huge support from its community and all kinds of activities the team has now to motivate demand, MATIC has an opportunity to recover and stabilize at a better level.
