With the newly launched portal, MATIC aims to create a new inflow of developers and new dApps which could push demand for MATIC higher.
Polygon aims to offer solutions that facilitate ease of use for both developers and users, a goal that positions it as a potential choice for enterprises and organizations exploring the Web3 ecosystem.
