A dramatic fall

According to CoinMarketCap data, the price of Matic plunged by almost 45 percent in a single day, which is one of the biggest drops you will ever see. To put this into perspective, if you invested $1,000 in Matic the day before, you could have lost up to $450.

It is worth noting that Fetch, another Binance IEO, also saw a similar outcome after being caught up in the FOMO craze. After reaching its ATH of $0.32, it nosedived by 39.78 percent, currently trading at $0.19.
