The year 2023 looks promising for MATIC. At least, with the way Polygon’s development team is performing, the crypto looks poised for a better year ahead.
Polygon, a Layer 2 scaling solution, has recently rolled out zkEVM public testnet (second version) in preparation for the launch of the blockchain’s mainnet.
In addition, the ecosystem has also launched two NFTs.
- Polygon rolls out second version of its zkEVM public testnet
- Polygon launches two NFT sports collections
- MATIC price seen doubling by 2023
The developments happening for Polygon (MATIC) sets the stage for the blockchain platform to eclipse performance and soar in 2023.
Crypto expert and analyst Ali Martinez nods to this forecast based on a chart that shows how MATIC can skyrocket to the $0.86 level with a bullish confirmation.
According to his recent tweet, he spotted two buy signals on the chart which include nine red candles which is followed by a green number 13.
In the event that these signals are confirmed, MATIC price could shoot to $0.86 or even more.

With the launch of the second zkEVM public testnet, the first one released sometime in October, it has now seen immense growth with over 10,509 wallet addresses and 21,968 total transactions processed on the network as of December 20.
