Injective Protocol, a fully decentralized Layer-2 DeFi protocol

A robust, highly parameterizable DeFi protocol supporting a diverse array of derivatives including CFDs, perpetual swaps and more.

Core Features

Injective Chain

The infrastructure powering next–generation DeFi applications

A layer-2 Cosmos zone that hosts the first trustless and fully decentralized exchange protocol. We have built the first fully decentralized orderbook, trade execution coordinator, order matcher and order execution environment.

Injective Futures Protocol

Unlocking a new permissionless era of financial access

A fully decentralized peer-to-peer futures protocol supporting decentralized perpetual swaps and contracts for difference(CFDs). This will enable anyone to create and trade on arbitrary derivative markets with just a price feed.

Injective Exchange

Pioneering a new model of exchange as a public utility

A completely open-source exchange infrastructure that disintermediates the current centralized exchange model. Injective eliminates the technical barriers of entry for anyone to trade on a highly performant exchange.

Injective Governance

Community owned and driven

Injective is decentralized and governed by the community using the Injective Token. Anyone can join as a stakeholder for our project and have a real say in making decisions in our protocol.

What problem does
Injective solve?

Injective brings power back to the people by enabling truly free and decentralized trading for everyone.

Many DEXs today claim to be decentralized but are actually centralized in most aspects besides custody. From restricting access to certain user demographics, retaining proprietary control over exchange infrastructure, every central limit orderbook DEX that we have seen has centralized components that allow traders to be subject to the will of an omnipotent authority. This is the fundamental problem that Injective solves.

The common rationale against full decentralization is that efficiency and user experience are sacrificed. We at Injective reject this notion and have committed ourselves to turning the vision of a highly performant, permissionless, and fully-decentralized exchange protocol into reality.

How is
Injective Different?

Pioneering a new decentralized economy.

The biggest fundamental difference between Injective Protocol and other exchanges is that we make exchange a decentralized public utility which gives our users and community the resultant value capture from our exchange protocol.

Our technology brings an order of magnitude speedup by scaling trade execution and settlement on layer- 2 all while being fully decentralized.Injective’s fully decentralized nature uniquely allows individuals to permissionlessly create and trade derivative markets that even centralized exchanges cannot support.
