Especially, Matic (Polygon) and Terra (LUNA) emerged as two of the top gainers in 2021 with tremendous profits of over 10,000% over the year. However, as the above protocols align themselves with advanced upgrades in 2022, they are optimistic of having similar gains like they had in 2021.
Matic price has been generating consecutive higher lows with substantial accumulation on the way. With a clear breakout at $1.8 on December 15th, the protocol has managed to claim an ATH of $2.92 on December 26th. However, the price is undergoing requisite correction from the past week as a cohort of traders jumped into sell their asset. Yet it would soon flip the bearish divergence to discover new ATHs.
