According to Santiment on-chain data shared by crypto analyst Ali Martinez, addresses holding 100,000 to 1,000,000 MATIC have acquired more than 20,000,000 MATIC since May 15. The MATIC price touched a low of $0.476 on May 12 before entering its present consolidation.
Whales' recent behavior might be because they are taking advantage of dips or consolidation to buy tokens at a discount.

According to WhaleStats data, MATIC also ranks among the top 10 in trading volumes for the largest 500 ETH whales in the last 24 hours. The top 2,000 ETH whales, according to WhaleStats, are hodling $118,390,533 MATIC.
MATIC's price continues to trade in a range, giving holders ample opportunity to accumulate. At the time of publication, MATIC was slightly higher, by 2.84% at $0.63, in line with the latest crypto market rebound. In any case, a break above the $0.84 barrier might imply that a bottom may have been reached at $0.47, leading to further upside gains.
