This was the case despite the ongoing crypto winter. This increase takes place despite the fact that NFT ecosystems on other chains, like as Ethereum and Solana, are seeing a weekly decrease in the number of users.
Polygon’s NFT Explosion
Another major reason that pushed Polygon’s NFT sales was due to yesterday’s NFT launch announcement centering on the former president and billionaire Donald Trump; with a retail price of “only $99 each”. Trump publicly announced it on his Truth Social platform along with a 2-minute video explaining the different NFTs.
According to the site hosting these NFTs, the collection is minted on the Polygon blockchain, and a total of 45,000 NFTs will be created during the first run of the collection.

Polygon (MATIC) Price
With strong technical indicators suggesting a trend reversal after being in the “oversold zone” and coupled with the favorable fundamental factors stated above, the MATIC token is due for a rally, as per leading crypto analysts.
The price of the Polygon (MATIC) token is currently trading close to $0.85, which is down by 0.43% in the past 1 hour and by 4.1% in the last seven days, at the time of writing. The decline in price comes after the whole crypto market slumped on the news of the U.S. Federal Reserve increasing interest rates by 50 basis points, followed by the ECB and the Bank Of England.
