Despite the massive cryto market crash of May 2021, a few cryptocurrencies and networks seem to have withstood that drop and one of these is Ethereum Layer 2 Scaling solution, Polygon, and the platform’s token, $MATIC.

At a time when almost every major crypto suffered losses, with Bitcoin dropping as much as 35%, MATIC was able to withstand the downdraft and gain 120% while pushing its rankings up to the top 20 cryptos by market capitalization.

Speaking about the longevity of Polygon despite the much-hyped Ethereum 2.0 upgrade, and the subsequent deployment of sharding on the network, which is expected to bring down fees, Sandeep Nailwal, CEO, Polygon, said:

“Ethereum 2.0 will become 64 times more scalable than Ethereum is now, but the demand is 1,000 times than where we are. You will need L2 scalability.”
