How a new update may be able to save Polygon’s dApp activity

Polygon’s MATIC is now ranked 11th in terms of market cap, with the altcoin gaining popularity as a result of its growing number of collaborations. Despite its growing number of partnerships, however, interest in Polygon’s dApps has remained flat. And yet, Polygon’s new partnership with Axelar Network may turn the tide in Polygon’s favor.

According to a tweet shared by Polygon on 27 October, Polygon’s collaboration with Axelar network will help it aid dApp users transfer assets to and from the PolygonSupernet.

Even so, despite Polygon’s growing efforts to increase multichain mass adoption and appreciate the reach of its dApps, Polygon did not see a lot of improvements in the dApp department.

Top performing dApps on the Polygon network such as Make Me Rich had its number of unique active wallets fall by 14.82% over the past week, according to DappRadar. Other dApps such as QuickSwap and 1inch Network also registered a decline in number of unique active wallets over the last 24 hours.

It wasn’t just dApp activity that was affected, daily activity on the Polygon network fell too. As can be observed from the chart below, daily active addresses fell over the last few weeks. In fact,  the number of active addresses on the network had gone down to 222,000, at the time of writing.

Coupled with that, Polygons’s network growth has also depreciated sharply over the same time period. This suggested that the number of new addresses that transferred MATIC for the first time fell, implying that there was a fall in interest from new addresses.

On the contrary, the volume registered a massive uptick over the last few days, despite the declining number of daily active addresses. This week alone, MATIC’s volume has grown from $394 million to $572 million. Along with that, the MVRV ratio has been moving north over the past two weeks – Something that could have an impact on its price.

At the time of writing, MATIC was trading at $0.938, with its price having appreciated by 0.13% over the last 24 hours.

According to Messari, its market cap dominance grew by 2.9% in the last 7 days. Furthermore, its volatility decreased by 9% as well, lowering the risk for potential investors who want to buy MATIC.
