Injective then announced a new $150 million Ecosystem Venture Group and a Global Virtual Hackathon, all aimed to support promising new protocols that choose to build on Injective.

With all these new initiatives and announcements, January set the tone for Injective, proving that its ecosystem growth will never stop.

Astroport is a sophisticated AMM protocol that allows any user to swap crypto assets using multiple pool types, including Curve-style stableswap pools and Uniswap v2-style constant product pools. The Astroport AMM can work in tandem with Injective’s on-chain orderbook module which can create a far more capital efficient environment for traders everywhere.

The news caught a lot of attention from the Cosmos ecosystem and beyond, which was reported by Cosmos Daily, ICO Drops, BSC News, MarketWatch, Helios Staking, and many more.

Injective and Astroport also co-hosted Twitter Spaces discussing why Injective is the best blockchain for DeFi applications and why Astroport selected Injective. For the full recap, please check out the exclusive video on Youtube.
