  • If you want a real crypto ‘pop’, look past the majors of Bitcoin and Ethereum and focus on the smaller tokens.
  • In the current market, I’m only trading ‘screaming buys’ that I feel comfortable Hodling if a crash does materialise.
  • Polygon network is a blockchain solution taking advantage of Ethereum’s overload; it’s seeing rapid adoption.

Blockchain Technology Structure Defocused

For me, crypto is a pure trade at the moment. After investing and trading crypto, equities seem plain dowdy, but I’m not going to be seduced by that. Crypto is going to be an exciting and hugely profitable market for

Well Matic is certainly moving since I wrote this....

@Clem Chambers
MATIC impressed me since last spring ; so did other layer 2s. The space will continue to do well provided bitcoin allows them to, until regulations start to clamp down on these DeFi and Web3 names, which are basically centralized tech companies, and so theyll be regulated under existing securities laws, more than likely

I see bitcoin being a big winner when that happens as capital rotates to it from these

Polygon is good pick imo. I use it as an L2 for one of the NFT projects that I’m currently high on. Simple bridge UI. And unlike ETH, a little MATIC goes a long way in the gas department.

@Mike Fay you should take a look at the Narni Bridge (Umbria Network). Much, much cheaper and faster than Polygon's; has already been heavily adopted by NFT projects on Polygon - Zed Run and Aavegotchi for two.

@KarenFHill Thanks, I'll take a look
@Mike Fay I'm bullish on Polygon as well. Its upcoming L2 solution Polygon Hermes seems promising. The development team have a good track record of productivity from 30 dApps to 300 dApps just this year. I took a peek - I feel the UI and frontend engineering work is well done. As opposed to other L2 solutions like Loopring that don't seem very well engineered and developed.
Clem,, i know the feeling, that tip toeing around for screaming buys while keeping an eye out for the big crash. lol. i too have Matic but mindfull that ETH may one day solve their high gas fees, and scaling problem. Yeah at $13B, if they continue to develop, an easy double at least.

Agree, sold it once for a profit, am back in again, still holding with a nice profit building daily….
@Clem Chambers - thanks for the article; while there is undervaluation compared to Sol, Ada, Eth, still tough to justify market value of $15B with current token supply at 70%. I would be buying on dips.
Fantom is the better option with more TVL and is a layer 1 solution

Polygon is in an MACD uptrend.
Great article and good strategy. I’m bearish on crypto but think it’s the best tradable asset if you have the risk tolerance for it. MATIC is on my watchlist, let’s see how it performs 👍
So how do you by in?
@User 14979912 You can buy $MATIC on exchanges like, Coinbase, Voyager, and Binance.US. ✌️
@Bliggs Thanks, I'm learning

@User 14979912 Its a steep curve but worth the climb
