Injective (INJ) Price Live Chart


Injective is a blockchain designed for finance, offering an open, interoperable layer-one blockchain for next-gen DeFi applications. It provides core financial infrastructure, including a decentralized MEV-resistant on-chain order book, enabling spot, perpetual, futures, and options markets fully on-chain. The platform's cross-chain bridging infrastructure is compatible with Ethereum, IBC-enabled blockchains, and non-EVM chains like Solana. The Injective is based on the Cosmos SDK with Tendermint-based PoS consensus, ensuring instant transaction finality and high throughput (10,000+ TPS). It has a thriving ecosystem with 100+ projects and 150,000+ community members, backed by prominent investors. The platform supports multiple layer 1s and is natively interoperable with Ethereum through its ERC-20 token bridge, offering automatic smart contract execution, and unlocking novel use cases.


Eric Chen is a co-founder of Injective Labs and has a background as a cryptographic researcher and trader at a major crypto fund. He led innovative market-neutral trading efforts in the blockchain space and made investments in prominent companies like 0x, ChainLink, and Cosmos. Chen has extensive knowledge of blockchain protocols and traditional finance, and he understands both eastern and western blockchain-based protocols and communities.

Albert Chon is the CTO of Injective Labs, having graduated with Bachelor's and Master's degrees in computer science from Stanford University. He previously worked as a software development engineer at Amazon and is known for pioneering a new Ethereum standard used by several major projects. Chon co-founded Injective Labs with Eric Chen.

What makes it unique?

Injective offers a Layer-1 smart contract blockchain with ultra-fast speeds and zero gas fees. It enables the creation of unlimited DeFi applications with its on-chain order book and robust infrastructure. The platform supports cross-chain trading and yield generation across various layer-1 blockchains like Cosmos and Ethereum. Injective's decentralized community governs the network through a DAO structure, allowing for community-driven innovations. It excels in interoperability, natively connecting with Ethereum, Cosmos, Solana, and more. The platform is fully customizable, enabling swift parameter modifications to suit specific use cases. Developers enjoy an intuitive experience with flexible environments powered by Rust and Golang. Moreover, Injective's Tendermint PoS consensus mechanism contributes to a 99% lower carbon footprint, making it environmentally friendly.

Network security

The Tendermint-based proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus mechanism employed by the Injective Protocol blockchain plays a significant role in achieving instant transaction finality and reducing the carbon footprint.

Instant Transaction Finality: In a proof-of-stake consensus mechanism like Tendermint, transactions are validated and confirmed by a set of validators who stake their native cryptocurrency (in this case, likely the Injective Token) as collateral. When a new block is proposed and validated, it achieves finality immediately, meaning that the transaction is confirmed and cannot be reverted. This instant finality ensures that transactions are quickly and securely processed, eliminating the need for multiple confirmations like in proof-of-work (PoW) systems.

99% Lower Carbon Footprint: Unlike proof-of-work (PoW) blockchains, where miners compete to solve complex mathematical puzzles to create new blocks, proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchains rely on validators to create and validate new blocks based on their stake in the network. As a result, PoS blockchains require significantly less computational power, which leads to a much lower energy consumption and carbon footprint. The Injective Protocol blockchain, utilizing the Tendermint PoS consensus, achieves a 99% lower carbon footprint compared to traditional PoW-based blockchains like Bitcoin.

Future developments

Injective is collaborating with Espresso Systems, a protocol that creates decentralized rollup sequencers. The partnership aims to bring decentralization to rollups built within Injective's ecosystem, particularly for Cascade, the first-ever Solana SVM rollup for Injective and the broader IBC ecosystem.

Espresso Systems builds tools and infrastructure for safer, more open, and efficient on-chain interactions and transactions. Its Espresso sequencer enables fast and secure transaction processing in a decentralized manner, without compromising the user experience typical of centralized sequencer systems. The platform is supported by prominent firms in the industry.

The collaboration will enhance rollup decentralization and interoperability while maintaining fast user experiences. Espresso's scalable data availability layer provides a cost-effective and decentralized solution with strong guarantees.

The first milestone will be a testnet integration with Cascade, leading to a fully decentralized sequencer framework for Injective rollups. Successful testing will be followed by a mainnet deployment in early 2024. Users can expect low latency and confidence that their transactions are processed in a decentralized, censorship-resistant, and fair manner.
