A mysterious wallet surfaced from the shadows and masterminded a significant transfer of 17,895,970 MATIC—which translates to a staggering $14.7 million—directly into Coinbase, in a crypto twist that sent shockwaves through the digital landscape.
The surge in significant transaction volume has caused the MATIC price to rise above $0.80 for the first time since July. The market capitalization of MATIC has grown by 62% during the last four weeks due to increased turnover and acquisition by whales.
MATIC Mysterious Financial Maneuver Unveiled
During this enigmatic financial maneuver, the cryptocurrency universe witnessed Polygon’s MATIC token commence a bullish journey. It became more complicated as MATIC rose above the $0.75 resistance level, only to face a strong barrier at the $0.89 support.
At the time of writing, MATIC was trading at $0.88, up 8.5% in the last 24 hours, and tallied an impressive 27% rally in the last seven days, data from CoinMarketCap shows.

The recent increase in value is occurring in conjunction with a revitalized cryptocurrency market, propelled by a rising sense of confidence surrounding Bitcoin.
Nevertheless, the increase in MATIC’s price cannot be only attributed to general market sentiment. Empirical evidence indicates that the aggregation of large investors and significant collaborations have played a crucial role in driving MATIC’s breakout.

According to IntoTheBlock, an on-chain analytics company, institutional and whale demand for the cryptocurrency space has significantly increased. In this sense, during the past 30 days, the amount of transactions involving over $100,000 has increased by 3,800% according to Polygon, an Ethereum scaling solution.
Based on data provided by the analytics platform Santiment, it has been seen that large-scale investors, commonly referred to as whales, with holdings ranging from 100,000 to 10 million MATIC tokens, have accumulated an excess of 42 million more tokens during the latter part of October.
Strong Buying Activity
In a 24-hour timeframe, a total of 161 transactions involving MATIC were executed, each surpassing a value of $100,000. This notable buying activity serves as a testament to the strong desire of significant stakeholders to accumulate MATIC holdings. The accumulation of assets has had a direct impact on the favorable movement of prices.
Increased Whale Appetite
Meanwhile, COINBASE has received over 55 million Polygon [MATIC] tokens, according to three different posts made by Whale Alert on X (previously Twitter).
