What is the reason of Polygon growth?

Although the anticipation of an in-game NFT sale on March 31 may have played a role, it is unclear what specifically triggered last month’s surge in demand for the game.

In a broader context, the research indicates that “on-chain gaming activity decreased by 3.33 percent in March to 741,567 daily Unique Active Wallets (dUAW); however, games will account for 45.6 percent of DApp industry activity in the first quarter of 2023.”

Over the past few months, Polygon has gained significant positive momentum, especially in relation to NFTs, gaming, and the Metaverse.

Polygon Labs, the organization behind the network, has partnered with numerous well-known companies to establish and host NFT initiatives, including Warner Music, Starbucks, Adidas, Reddit, and Adobe.

Additionally, Polygon’s open-source zero-knowledge rollup, the equivalent of the Ethereum Virtual Machine, was effectively launched on March 27. According to its proponents, it will enable DApps to scale through transaction batching, facilitating faster network transactions and reducing their gas costs.
