Adding support was news of Walt Disney including Polygon in the 2022 Accelerator.

Polygon (MATIC) Joins the 2022 Disney Accelerator

On Wednesday, Walt Disney announced six companies joining the 2022 Disney Accelerator.

The Disney Accelerator is a business development program that supports the growth of innovative companies globally.

According to the announcement,

“This year’s Disney Accelerator class is focused on building the future of immersive experiences and specializes in technologies such as augmented reality (AR), non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and artificial intelligence (AI) characters.”

The announcement went on to say,

“Over the course of the program, each participant company will receive guidance from Disney’s senior leadership team, as well as a dedicated executive mentor.”

The companies listed in the 2022 Disney Accelerator include Flickplay, Inworld, Lockerverse, Obsess, Polygon, and Red 6.

Polygon CEO Ryan Wyatt took to Twitter, saying,

“We are the only blockchain selected.”

Wyatt added,

“It speaks volumes to the work being done here, and where we’re going as a company.”

Technical Indicators

MATIC will need to avoid the $0.6016 pivot to target the First Major Resistance Level at $0.6821.

A broad-based crypto rally would support a breakout from the Wednesday high of $0.6451.

In the event of another extended rally, the bulls could target resistance at $0.70 and the Second Major Resistance Level at $0.7253.

The Third Major Resistance Level sits at $0.8494.

A fall through the pivot would bring the First Major Support Level at $0.5582 into play. Barring an extended sell-off, MATIC should steer clear of sub-$0.55 and the Second Major Support Level at $0.4774.

The EMAs and the 4-hourly candlestick chart (below) send a bullish signal. This morning, MATIC sat above the 50-day EMA, currently at $0.5594.

The 50-day EMA pulled away from the 200-day EMA, with the 100-day EMA narrowing to the 200-day EMA, both bullish signals.

A hold above the 50-day EMA and a bullish cross of the 100-day EMA through the 200-day EMA would signal a breakout session.
