Full Story

ICON has seamlessly integrated with Injective through the Cosmos Inter-Blockchain Communication (IBC) protocol. After integrating Cosmos IBC into its interoperability layer, ICON is rapidly moving to integrate with key chains in the Cosmos ecosystem. The latest integration is with Injective, the leading primary layer-1 blockchain that focuses on DeFi and interoperability.

Choosing Injective as a strategic collaborator is a natural progression for ICON. Injective stands out with its innovative infrastructure and cross-chain interoperability. With the $150M Ecosystem Venture Initiative, Injective is dedicated to empower builders and accelerate DeFi adoption. Injective shares the same vision with ICON to keep moving forward scalability and borderless solutions. 

The integration between ICON and Injective brings a new era of possibilities for builders who are seeking to build cross-chain applications. By bridging the two robust blockchains, developers can now access Injective’s wide range of functionalities in a more interconnected environment and users can expect a more seamless DeFi experience. This integration is a catalyst to foster innovation and drive the growth of DeFi space.

As ICON continues to explore the interconnected future, the integration with Injective marks a significant milestone. Sharing the same commitment, ICON and Injective create an environment for innovation without boundaries.
