Today, Injective unveils another enhancement to its groundbreaking burn auction. Following the success of INJ 2.0, which empowered any dApp or protocol to contribute transaction fees to the weekly burn auction, this update makes a further amendment and allows anyone–from dApps to protocols and now individual community members–to contribute funds to the weekly burn auction. 

This latest iteration marks a significant stride towards inclusivity, opening the doors for a broader range of contributors, including protocols, dApps, and users, to participate in the burn auction.

The Evolution of the Injective Weekly Burn Auctions

Injective's Weekly Burn Auction made its debut in December 2021 as a novel addition to the ecosystem. Initially, all exchange dApps on Injective contributed 60% of their transaction fees to a weekly auction, where participants could bid for the entire week's collected fees. The winning bid in INJ for the auction basket was then subsequently burned.

This mechanism effectively captured the total value of activity on DEXs deployed on Injective while benefiting all stakeholders involved.

However, as Injective evolved into a blockchain built for finance, it became imperative to adapt this mechanism to accommodate the growing diversity of dApps. In August 2023, the Burn Auction underwent its first upgrade, allowing any dApp, regardless of nature, to contribute. This expansion welcomed a multitude of applications, including lending platforms, NFT marketplaces and prediction applications, to participate in the burn. 

Moreover, protocols gained the ability to allocate any desired amount–not just 60%–to the auction, with the option to dedicate even up to 100% of their collected fees to the auction basket. 

This allowed greater flexibility for developers, enabling those experiencing higher growth volumes within their protocols to not only celebrate their success individually, but also highlight it for the entire ecosystem. This exemplifies Injective’s mission in fostering a truly decentralized ecosystem. 

The Next Stage of INJ Burn Auctions

Today’s update marks the next stage of the INJ Burn, allowing any community member to contribute any asset of their choice into the auction basket. This iteration transcends barriers, inviting contributions from every corner of the community and enriching the ecosystem’s diversity.

"The essence of decentralization lies in empowering every individual to play an active role in shaping the ecosystem," said Eric Chen, co-founder and CEO of Injective Labs. "By democratizing access to the burn auction, Injective is not only amplifying community participation but also reinforcing the collective commitment towards decentralization."

This deflationary mechanism not only reduces the token supply but also instills a sustainable model for value creation within the ecosystem.

The continuous growth and iteration of the burn auction underscore Injective's commitment to inclusivity and value creation for its community. By expanding participation rights and fostering a culture of collaboration, Injective paves the way for a more vigorous and resilient decentralized ecosystem.
