Injective Protocol, the world’s first layer-2 decentralized exchange protocol, rose to popularity as decentralized finance space roared amidst a market-wide bull run. Its native token, INJ, however, has failed to post substantial gains and was found consolidating off late. But there has been a change to this trend.
Injective Protocol’s native token, INJ has found a fresh push to its lagging bullish momentum. Even as the digital asset was down by 4.00% on a weekly basis, it climbed by more than 18% over the past 24-hours.
Injective Protocol [INJ] Daily Chart:
The daily chart for the native token of decentralized derivatives exchange depicted that there is more upside potential following the news.
It was currently exchanging hands at $14.19 while registering a market cap of $217 million and a trading volume of $50.8 million over the last 24-hours.
If the above one-day chart of INJ token is taken into account, it can be observed that the Relative Strength Index [RSI] has finally made headway above the 50 median line demonstrating favorable buying conditions for the bulls. In short, if the present momentum gains necessary traction, INJ could eye its recently hit ATH and soar higher.
