As stated in a recent update, Polygon has launched two new features, first for mobile burning capabilities for MATIC tokens, and a new Token List service. The MATIC burn console will now be available for Polygon's mobile wallet suite, complete with a fresh interface that is aimed at providing a seamless and intuitive experience to its users.

U.Today previously covered Polygon teasing its community on two massive products set to be released shortly. It also hints at its multichain ecosystem, leaving the community to guess what it could be about.

Polygon, the Layer 2 scaling network, rolled out a major upgrade in January, incorporating Ethereum's London hard fork. With EIP 1599 now on its mainnet, the Polygon upgrade will limit the supply of MATIC and make its tokens potentially more valuable.

According to the Polygon Burn tracker, a total of 607,121.47 MATIC have been burned since this mechanism was initiated.
