What to consider when buying Injective ProtocolInvesting in cryptocurrencies can be risky, so it’s important you understand the risks involved. Here are some factors to consider before buying INJ tokens:
- Supply: Initially, the supply of INJ coins was capped at 100 million tokens. According to the Injective Protocol website, the inflation target for INJ tokens is 7% at the beginning and it will taper off to 2% over time. Over time, the total supply of INJ tokens may be less than the initial supply, due to buybacks and burns.
- Staking: In March 2021, Injective Protocol launched Equinox Staking which allows INJ holders to lock up their INJ tokens in order to earn rewards. The baseline annual percentage yield (APY) for staking INJ tokens is 15% but you can earn up to 29%, according to the Injective Protocol blog.
- Use cases. Other than staking, other use cases for INJ tokens include protocol governance, exchange fee value capture, derivative collateralisation and liquidity mining.
