Realistic or not, here is MATIC’s market cap in terms of BTC
In recent months, there has been an increase in active DeFi wallets, with much of that growth driven by QuickSwap. [QUICK], which alone accounted for 382,000 active wallets. The popularity of QuickSwap has led to an increase in DeFi activity on the Polygon network.
Other DEXs, such as Uniswap [UNI], also launched on Polygon and capitalized on this increased activity. Uniswap is one of the largest decentralized exchanges in the crypto space, and its presence on the Polygon network has helped attract more users to the network.
In nine of the 12 months of 2022, Uniswap saw its trading volume increase month over month, ending the year with a record monthly volume of $3.91 billion. This showed that Uniswap and other DEXs on Polygon have managed to capture significant market share in the DeFi space.
According to Dune Analytics, the weekly volume of all DEX on Polygon has also increased during this period. Over the past three months, DEX volumes on Polygon have increased from $277 million to $590.59 million. This indicates that the network could attract more users and merchants to its ecosystem.
Due to the increase in DeFi activity, the number of unique addresses on Polygon has also increased significantly. This was a positive sign as it indicated that the network was attracting new users and not just relying on existing users.
However, despite the growth of Polygon’s DeFi sector, the volume of Polygon NFTs has continued to decline, according to Dune Analytics.
This drop in interest on the NFT has coincided with a drop in interest in the MATIC token.
