MATIC price surges after the release of Polygon Studios
The second-best performing token on the 24-hour charts is Polygon (MATIC), the popular layer-two solution for the Ethereum (ETH) network that has seen a significant increase in adoption over the first half of 2021.

The surging momentum for Polygon is in large part due to the release of Polygon Studios, the protocol’s “new arm for the blockchain gaming and NFT ecosystem.”
AXS regains momentum
The third-best performer over the past 24-hours was Axie Infinity (AXS), an NFT-focused protocol that rallied more than 1,000% over the past month thanks to soaring user activity and the income opportunities it offers users in economically disadvantaged countries.
According to data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro, market conditions for AXS have been favorable for some time.
