Injective Protocol FAQ

Wallet: Metamask and Ledger


Injective’s native token, INJ, is used for staking, participation in on-chain governance, various incentives, collateral backing for derivatives, and exchange participation.

Staking rewards and transfers will begin at the launch of the mainnet. You’ll need at least 5 INJ to start delegating on the network.

Good question!

Initially, INJ is being staked to earn new issuance (“inflationary”) subsidies. That means that the INJ supply will increase and stakers will capture the newly issued INJ. Generally, you will earn around 3% annually on your staked INJ, but that can change. Injective allows for ways for users to boost their APY. Find tips for increasing your APY here. Since staking rewards are tied to inflation, read about how inflation and rewards are related here.

Stakers will also capture fees from network transactions, so as Injective transaction volume increases, INJ stakers will earn more than new issuance subsidies.

~20 days, making it similar to other Cosmos-based projects.

You can self-custody your Injective tokens, ideally using a Ledger hardware wallet.

Figment has partnerships with a number of top-in-class custodians:

Staking income on Injective is automatically disturbed every block. Figment is never in control of your rewards.

Staking income is not staked automatically, which means you will not need to unstake to withdraw your staking income. New delegation required to stake liquid rewards.

Your potential rewards depend upon validator performance. When your validator is down, you will not be earning staking income.

Inflation for the mainnet will be 7% of the total supply, set to decrease over time until reaching a floor of 2%.

Decisions are executed via on-chain governance. A proposal must be submitted for consideration with a deposit of INJ, before it can be voted on.
