Injective partners with Wormhole to bring 10 new blockchains to the platform
Decentralized finance (DeFi) protocol Injective (INJ) has partnered with Wormhole to combine “10 new blockchains” to its community.
Injective is a Cosmos (ATOM) layer-2 decentralized trade (DEX) that provides derivatives, token swaps and sports activities betting prediction markets. It’s also targeted on interoperability through cross-chain bridging, and presently helps digital property from Ethereum (ETH), Polkadot (DOT) and IBC-enabled chains corresponding to Cosmos.
Injective Labs, the protocol’s builders, famous in a Wednesday announcement that the partnership will allow customers to switch and commerce property throughout any chain that’s built-in with Wormhole.
“The Wormhole integration will vastly improve Injective’s capabilities with respect to interoperability. Customers will quickly discover Wormhole built-in into the backend of the Injective Bridge whereby transferring property from distinct EVM chains or Solana (SOL) might be accomplished with the clicking of a button,” Injective Labs said.
Injective publicizes new integration with @WormholeCrypto ‼️
Wormhole brings ten new chains, corresponding to @Avalancheavax and @Solana, to Injective’s already interoperable chain, making Injective the first gateway to enter the @cosmos universe ⚛️ https://t.co/Zu8belwh7d

Wormhole is a generic messaging protocol that interacts with completely different blockchains, offering providers corresponding to cross-chain software assist and token bridges.
Not all the “10 new blockchains” are named particularly. Wormhole’s web site additionally solely lists 9 chain integrations which embrace Solana, Terra (LUNA), Ethereum (ETH), Avalanche (AVAX), Oasis Binance Good Chain, Polygon (MATIC), Fantom (FTM) and Aurora (AOA).
With Terra falling right into a heap and Ethereum already being supported, it’s unclear what the opposite remaining chains out of the overall of 10 are.
Nevertheless, the challenge has highlighted the flexibility of Injective to “function the first gateway for cross-chain native property from Solana and different outstanding layer-1 chains” to enter the ecosystem.
“The choices for customers can prolong far past asset transfers as properly. As an illustration, DApps on Injective may allow seamless cross-chain buying and selling throughout the Cosmos and Solana ecosystems whereas additionally having the ability to provide yields on Solana (or another Wormhole supported asset).”
“Builders using chains corresponding to Avalanche, Algorand or Polygon can entry property throughout the broader Cosmos ecosystem through Injective,” it added.
Cosmos builders can even have the ability to incorporate Wormhole’s generic messaging layer and add cross-chain functionalities inside their dApps.

The announcement has accomplished little to sway the worth of Injective’s native token INJ thus far, with the worth dropping 2.6% prior to now 24 hours to sit down at $2.21, on the time of writing. The token can also be down 91.1% since its all-time excessive of $24.89 in late April 2021, according to knowledge from CoinGecko.
