Injective is the first blockchain built specifically for finance. It is an open, interoperable layer-one powering next-generation DeFi applications, including decentralized spot and derivatives exchanges, prediction markets, lending protocols, and more. 

Injective is comprised of four principal components: 

  • Chain - Injective utilizes Tendermint consensus and the core protocol logic is implemented through native modules built on top of the Cosmos-SDK and through smart contracts on the CosmWasm smart contract layer.
  • Bridge - Injective provides a decentralized cross-chain bridging infrastructure with Ethereum as well as with any IBC-enabled blockchain.
  • API nodes - Serving as a data layer for the protocol, and providing transaction relay services. 
  • dApps and tooling - A number of dApps are currently built on Injective. Presently, the most widely used dApps built on top of Injective are decentralized exchanges (DEXs), which provide individuals with an advanced decentralized trading experience.
