Injective's Latest Updates

Injective (INJ) is a decentralized exchange protocol built on Ethereum. Cosmos SDK blockchain that enables users to trade a wide range of assets, including derivatives, futures, and synthetic assets.

Let’s discover Injective’s Latest Updates and see how much they’ve improved in the latest months.

1) Tokenomics

According to CoinGecko, these are the most important indicators of Injective’s tokenomics.

Total Supply Circulating Supply Market Cap Deflationary Mechanism
100M 80M ~$476M Yes


2) Governance

Anything related to the protocol is voted through the DAO, from Auction or Exchange module to protocol parameters or upgrades. So, anyone who deposits 500 INJ can open a proposal which then goes through the voting process. Right now, there are 175 proposals passed out of 203 total:

3) Token Burn

Exchanges who originate orders into the shared orderbook on Injective’s exchange protocol are rewarded with 40% of the trading fees, with an average minimum trading fee of 0.1% for makers and 0.2% for takers

And then the rest 60% of the trading fees are burned through the Burn Auction, where bids in INJ are placed.

The highest bid earns assets from transaction fees while INJ tokens used to bid are burned, creating a deflationary pressure to INJ supply.

This makes the basket of fees for the weekly auction keep rising, and more INJ is burned every week.

  • The 5-day Moving Average (MA) was moving faster than the 34-day MA. And since the value rose above zero, it implies a shift towards the bullish momentum.

6) Transaction Volume and Active Users

As a result of Injective’s price surge, there has been a noticeable increase in both total transactions and active users on the platform, particularly since April.

NFT Integration:

  • Notable NFT collections associated with Injective include The Ninjas, Takeda, and Aliens On Injective.
7) Ecosystem Projects

  1. Astroport
  • The main AMM Exchange allows any user to swap crypto assets using multiple pool types.
  • Pool types such as Curve-style stable swap pools and Uniswap v2-style constant product pools.
  • It also facilitates swapping Injective assets bridged from not only Cosmos or Ethereum, but also from Solana, Aptos, and Avalanche through Injective’s recent Wormhole integration.
  1. Talis Protocol:
  • Talis is a transparent, trustless, and decentralized NFT platform.
  • The $TALIS token will serve as the official governance token for the protocol, allowing users to take part in smart contract changes, fraud monitoring, and the Talis Treasury.
  • Since a decentralized protocol, all fees would go back to token holders. Token Holders will be able to govern, stake, and share profits in tokens.

5. Project X

Injective is set to launch an upcoming project called Project X, which is still shrouded in mystery with limited information available. Project X aims to introduce automated strategy vaults for market making and passive yield generation. Plus it will feature a one-click Launchpad for fundraising and listings. Monitoring announcements and updates regarding Project X will provide valuable information about Injective’s ongoing development and potential enhancements to its ecosystem.
