In an attempt to foster massive adoption of DeFi, popular layer-1 blockchain, Injective has launched a $150 million ecosystem fund. The blockchain firm announced the development in its Wednesday blog post. According to Injective, the ecosystem fund would be channelled towards empowering and supporting developers building on the Cosmos network, thereby fostering DeFi adoption.

According to the blockchain firm, the initiative enjoys the backup of the largest institutions spanning across Web3 and traditional finance. Some of these institutions as highlighted by Injective, includes Pantera Capital, Kucoin Ventures, Jump Crypto, IDG Capital, Gate Labs, Delphi Labs, Flow Traders and Kraken Ventures. It boasted that the venture consortium remains the largest assembled within the broader Cosmos community.

Additionally, Injective maintained that the ecosystem fund runs as venture initiative, seeking to take unprecedented levels of growth by supporting the best builders on the network. According to the blockchain firm, it plans to prioritize builders pioneering new ideas across a diverse array of sectors. These sectors include interoperability, DeFi, trading, PoS infrastructure, rollups and scalability solutions.

Worthy of note that Injective has continued to record massive growth in developer activity and dApp deployments. As of press time, it enjoys the patronage of remarkable projects like Helix, Frontrunner and White Whale on its chain. Barely a week ago, Astroport, one of the largest AMMs also adopted Injective as its new L1 destination chain. Now, occasioned by this ecosystem fund, the firm aims to scale ecosystem growth with partners who believe in Injective and the broader Cosmos vision.

Injective seeks to connect new builders with right partners

According to Injective, the venture group aims to further connect new builders with the right partners within the consortium. Notably, these developers would be eligible to support via bespoke investments. More so, they will enjoy mentorship in technical development, cryptographic research, business development, marketing, community growth and many more. This thus helps to enable developed web3 projects scale to the next stage of their evolution.

To participate in the empowerment, Injective asked builders to submit a quick application. It requests that such application must provide details on the idea, teak and current development stage of the project. Afterward, the venture group will review all portions of the application and thus reach out to the applicants if necessary.

Furthermore, the Injective venture group seeks to bridge the gap between traditional and decentralized finance. The firm believes such can be achieved by supporting the builders of tomorrow. Through this, it hopes to further its mission to create an entirely new financial paradigm for the masses, powered by the core tenets of decentralization.
