Is Matic a good investment in Netherlands?
Matic became a popular coin in 2021, which was a bad year for most cryptocurrencies, especially Bitcoin.

That’s why most people started buying Matic, and this token became one of the best tokens on the market. Matic's initial price in 2017 was $ $0.013. The fluctuations of the Matic price weren’t that much until 2021 when the price rose to $1 for the first time in its history. It recorded the highest price of $2.874 at the end of 2021 and then started to fall under $1 again. MATIC was trading for around $0.75 as of September 2022.

What is Polygon ?
Polygon is a cryptocurrency network that runs as a sidechain alongside Ethereum. It was launched in 2017 under the name of the Matic network. Later in February 2021, Matic was rebranded to Polygon. Now the Polygon is known as the network name, and its token is called Matic. Polygon was created by a group of Indian developers to help Ethereum expand in size, and increase its security and usefulness. Furthermore, Polygon is the home to a range of decentralized apps. People can participate in different actions on this platform, such as playing games, joining virtual worlds, creating smart contracts, and participating in various financial services. The aim of creating such a platform was to improve the speed of Ethereum-based platforms and reduce the costs of transactions on this network.
