Polygon (MATIC) Records 22% Weekly Gains Despite Crypto Winter – Here’s Why

Polygon Network is favored by top global brands, including Disney & Coca-Cola.

Polygon (MATIC) is a Layer-2 solution compatible with the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain. The company made a historic breakthrough yesterday, when Disney announced that it had picked Polygon (MATIC) for its ‘Accelerator Program’.

The company has plans to be among the leaders in Web 3.0, so building on the top smart contract platform is a top priority, especially with ETH 2.0 just around the corner. Polygon (MATIC) experienced its all time low at  $0.31 on June 18th, but has since rocketed upward to its prive of $0.69 at the time of writing, according to CoinGecko.

The Disney Accelerator Program is focused on Web 3.0 technologies, including Artificial Intelligence, Augmented Reality and, of course, NFTs (non-fungible tokens). Polygon (MATIC) is the only blockchain company to have been selected for this year’s Accelerator class, at which participants will contribute to “connecting the 2022 class with the creativity, imagination, and expertise of Disney.

Rapid mainstream adoption, and the array of large projects moving to the Polygon network, have been key to the network’s long-term success. As a result of these factors, the Polygon network now hosts the brand new Reddit NFT marketplace, and managed to score a deal to help Coca-Cola celebrate “Pride Month” with an exclusive NFT collection.

Polygon (MATIC) is perhaps the blockchain to have gained the most from Do Kwon’s troubles and the demise of Terra (LUNA), as now many of the Terra network;s top projects have elected to migrate onto Polygon. Finally, many of the top crypto platforms now offer liquid staking for MATIC, meaning holders can earn rewards up to 13% APY.
