Polygon (MATIC) has exhibited bearishness for most of 2023 as the broad crypto market endured a prolonged downside. The United States Securities & Exchange Commission dented the altcoin further after labeling it a security, forcing platforms such as Robinhood to delist MATIC alongside alts Solana and Cardano.

Polygon’s downward stance has seen it lose its mid-September gains, which emerged amid improved sentiments after developers proposed to migrate to Polygon 2.0. Also, the proposals included replacing MATIC with a POL token for staking and gas payments in the ecosystem.

According to news, Polygon 2.0 architecture kickstarted the crypto’s journey as a valuable asset as it introduces unified liquidity and unlimited scalability.

However, the asset has erased gains accrued during this hype. Meanwhile, Lookonchain believes a whale moving 10.78 million tokens (worth around $5.5M at current prices) to exchange Binance amplified MATIC’s bearish stance.

That transfer occurred within the past 26 hours, triggering a 3% decline in the token’s price.
