New chief at Polygon Studios

Moreover, Polygon token could benefit from the newly-appointed CEO, Ryan Wyatt, the former Head of gaming at YouTube. The executive called his departure from YouTube “bittersweet” and asserted he was “elated” about the new position.

It is bittersweet news to share that I am leaving @YouTube.

I have loved every minute of my time here, but it is time for my next endeavor.

I am pleased to announce that I will be joining @0xPolygon ($MATIC) as their CEO of Polygon Studios.

Thank you for the memories! ❤️ pic.twitter.com/VhQxpqDbFO

In hindsight, Polygon Studios is the newest addition to the ecosystem, which focuses on gaming, NFTs, and “facilitating a hotbed for digital culture.”

In my role at Polygon Studios, I will be focused on growing the developer ecosystem through investment, marketing, and developer support and bridging the gap between Web2 and Web3. In addition, I’ll be leading the Polygon Studios organization across Gaming, Entertainment, Fashion, News, Sports, and more.

Commented the executive.

MATIC price chart

MATIC flashed bearish formations on the daily and the weekly charts. In detail, the price action on the daily chart formed a Head and Shoulders. The latter features three consecutive tops, with the middle one (Head) higher than the other two (Shoulders). In addition, a mutual base (Neckline) connects the bottoms of the Head and the Shoulders.

Hence, the digital asset confirmed the formation on January 20 and dropped below the neckline, grabbing onto the support at $1.50. Crypto analyst and the CEO of Eight Global Michael Van de Poppe commented on the support line and pointed out that the next resistance would lie at $1.90.

Polygon token weekly chart

MATIC’s weekly chart didn’t look very optimistic either. In detail, the digital asset traded in a Rising wedge for the previous nine months. However, MATIC broke down from the Wedge’s support during the last week, confirming the bearish prognosis.

In retrospect, the Rising Wedge is a reversal pattern that constricts the price action between two converging trendlines with a positive slope. Once the token falls below the support, it could enter a bearish phase, with more losses ahead.Polygon MATIC token price weekly chart.

However, the MATIC token remains dependent on Bitcoin (BTC) and the crypto-happenings on a larger scale. Therefore, keeping an eye on Bitcoin movements could shed more light on the Polygon price action in the upcoming weeks.

Meanwhile, Santiment stated that Polygon takes the gold as the ‘Strong and Oversold’ token with the most appealing fundamentals.
