We are excited to announce that Polygon has been chosen to be a part of the Disney Accelerator program 🎉https://t.co/hk6gZziy8X
Helmed by The Walt Disney Company, Disney Accelerator is the largest business development program designed to accelerate the growth of cutting-edge entertainment companies across the globe.
In 2022, the program is focused on use cases that involve augmented reality (AR), non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and artificial intelligence (AI).
MATIC, Polygon's token, immediately reacted to the announcement. The MATIC price added over 25% in less than seven hours, revisiting a five-week high over $0.65.
MATIC becomes top-performing large cap
By press time, the price of MATIC slightly dropped; it is changing hands at $0.625 on major spot trading platforms. However, it still remains the top performing coin among all large-cap altcoins.
The Disney Accelerator program is set to start this week. Polygon Network (MATIC) will be accompanied there by Flickplay and Lockerverse Web3 social apps, AI start-ups InVerse and Obsess and AR innovators Red 6.
As covered by U.Today previously, the Polygon (MATIC) price was catalyzed by integration with fintech heavyweight Robinhood and the upcoming launch of Reddit's NFT marketplace.
