We’ll get to those in a minute.

First, let’s talk about what’s driving this outsized interest in Polygon. Polygon is what’s known as a layer-2 network, built on top of the Ethereum (CCC:ETH-USD) network. In other words, Polygon helps to process transactions on its side-chain (working alongside Ethereum). There has been a surge in interest for NFTs, decentralized finance (DeFi) and other applications built on top of Ethereum. As a result, network speeds on Ethereum are slow, and transactions costs network remain sky-high. Polygon helps solve these problems.

A popular scaling solution, Polygon has seen volumes grow on its network substantially. Specifically, in the world of NFTs, Polygon is quickly becoming a go-to network. According to recent reports, Polygon’s NFT volumes surged 60% month over month in November, to nearly 2 million transactions per month. This rate is incredible, and speaks to the level of interest in the Polygon network.

Accordingly, many investors are becoming bullish on the MATIC token. Let’s take a look at where the experts see this token headed from here.
