MATIC makes a major rally

MATIC currently ranks as one of the top 20 cryptocurrencies in terms of market capitalization. The token failed to make a major price rally in October and early November as the rest of the market did.

As Bitcoin and Ethereum hit new all-time highs, MATIC was trading at around $2.03, which was way below its ATH set in May, at the peak of the crypto market. However, since the end of November, the token has been making a major rebound, and the recent ETP listing has further boosted the prices.

During the past 24 hours, MATIC has gained by more than 10%, which is a major gain, given that the majority of the market is currently trading in the red zone after Bitcoin (BTC/USD) dropped to $56,000. MATIC is among the few tokens in the top 20 ranking that has made gains during the past 24 hours.
