According to Stader Polygon, more than 750,000 MATIC have been burned over the past three months. As seen on the Polygonburn website, a total of 1,642,831 MATIC (1.6 million) have been burned so far.

Polygon's native token, MATIC, burning was enabled, thanks to the EIP-1559 upgrade that went live on the Polygon network in January. The tokens are burned and deducted from the overall supply, similar to a withdrawal transaction on Polygon.

The base fee is locked on the burn contract on Polygon, and the priority fee is paid to the validator each time a user pays for a transaction. Users can start the burn process from Polygon once MATIC has been accumulated on the burn contract.

Chainsmokers, an American electronic DJ and music duo, is releasing its NFT collection on Polygon. The release of their new album, "So Far So Good," will include the distribution of 5,000 NFTs, allowing fans to partake in 1% of earnings. The Chainsmokers use a platform called Royal, which runs on the Polygon network and is responsible for Nas' and other well-known artists' recent NFT drops.
