What is Injective protocol?


Injective Protocol is a decentralized Layer 2 derivatives exchange for Ethereum.

How it works


Users can trade different kinds of derivatives trustlessly and with no gas fees.

  • It uses a bridge (Peggy) and the injective EVM which is based on Ethermint.
  • It allows for decentralized layer 2 scaling of the 0x order relay.

Fees

Trading fees are used to incentivize LPs and order relayers. Remaining trading fees are sold in batch every month for INJ. These tokens are then burnt.

Bridge

  • Users deposit their ETH or ERC-20 tokens in the bridge.
  • An injective relayer creates and signs a transaction and sends it to the Injective chain.
  • Nodes verify.
  • The tokens are now minted on the injective chain.

The user can withdraw their tokens at any time and they are then burned on the Injective Chain.
