After declining to lows of $1.62 during the Dec. 4 sell-off, MATIC has steadily climbed to reach highs of $2.44 today. Polygon (MATIC), a Layer 2 scaling solution, continues to benefit from Ethereum's skyrocketing network transaction fees.
As of press time, nearly all of the tokens in the top 100 have added value and are, therefore, trading in green. The total market capitalization has grown by 7.61% in the past 24 hours to reach $2.4 trillion as of press time.Source
