As per WhaleStats data, MATIC is one of the top 10 purchased tokens in the last 24 hours as the crypto market dips. The market is experiencing a slight dip in the last 24 hours as investors weigh the possibility of a March rate hike after Wednesday's FOMC minutes. The MATIC price is experiencing a dip like the rest of the market.
In the last 48 hours, MATIC has seen significant buying from whales. The most recent was that of an Ethereum whale ranking the fourth largest among the 1000 wallets tracked by WhaleStats, acquiring 750,000 MATIC tokens, or $1,342,500 worth.
