Shark Tank host and owner of the Dallas Mavericks, Mark Cuban, has decided to invest in Polygon after witnessing the recent almost meteoric rise experienced by the cryptocurrency. As it stands right now, MATIC is trading at $2.28, which is a 26.2% increase since yesterday. The decision by Cuban had been made via disclosure on a website of his, which offered even more evidence as to the fact that numerous wealthy investors are indeed looking to invest in cryptocurrency regardless of the recent market crash.
Moreover, Mark Cuban Companies’ website now adding Polygon is a decision that was made fairly recently, and all it really did was reaffirm the backing being provided to the project by the billionaire.
Cuban becoming increasingly supportive of cryptocurrencies
It should be mentioned that Mark was actually quite the polarizing and controversial figure within the crypto community and market not too long ago, but he has nevertheless since turned it around and has now become one of the more vocal and outspoken supporters of the crypto industry over the course of the previous year.
In related news, he had also quietly distanced himself from fellow billionaire Elon Musk following his recent decision involving BTC payments being no longer accepted by Tesla.

Furthermore, this new influx of users had also culminated in approximately $1 billion being generated in overall volumes.
