Community engagement, partnerships, new launches, and developer activity all pushed the price to near August highs, with MATIC reaching $0.95 on October 26th. Prices have stabilized since then, but the token, at $0.90 at the time of writing, still stands mostly as a red crypto market outlier.
The positive price action Polygon has seen over the past month is the result of a significant increase in user activity. Data analyzed by CryptoSlate shows a notable spike in the number of active addresses on the network, comparable to those seen in July.
However, the increase in user activity Polygon has seen so far has not led to a sale of MATIC. There has been a significant increase in the volume of MATIC leaving the exchange, indicating that users are more focused on using their tokens in various dApps and services built on Polygon than trading.
