Injective is joining forces with Cartesi to enable mainstream developer adoption of the Injective Chain. Both projects will study together how to integrate Cartesi’s tools on the Injective ecosystem. The aim is to allow developers to utilize familiar programming tools from the world’s leading OS, unlocking tremendous smart contract capabilities offered by the highly interoperable and flexible Injective Chain.
The main objective of this initiative is to enhance the programmability over Injective’s solution allowing Injective’s developers more opportunities than ever before to launch new applications on top of Injective. This can include new frontend interfaces as well as new trading mechanisms altogether, such as an AMM.
Background on Injective’s Integration with Cartesi
A major roadblock for anyone new to the crypto industry is the learning curve required to code secure smart contracts. Typically, a developer needs to familiarize themselves with Solidity (an object-oriented programming smart contract language) to launch new decentralized applications (DApps) on layer one chains such as Ethereum.
Cartesi offers a viable solution to this conundrum by allowing developers to code using mainstream software stacks supported by Linux, which stands as a major OS globally. This vastly helps to increase opportunities for mainstream developers to be able to onboard onto crypto-native networks.
By offering a new programming environment, Injective greatly helps accelerate the level of support for the burgeoning developer community. Injective was designed from day one to be a market leading bespoke application specific chain for derivatives trading. Given the flexible nature of the chain, developers can launch a diverse array of DApps on top of Injective. These applications can cover a great number of sectors, such as new frontend interfaces or even new digital assets.
With Cartesi, the collaboration on the integration will help Injective take this mission one step further by allowing developers to launch DApps on the Injective Chain using mainstream programming tools.
“I am very excited to collaborate with Injective’s team, bringing Cartesi to its growing ecosystem. Today, existing blockchain application developers are limited in their coding abilities and millions of mainstream software developers are left outside because they don’t find their everyday languages and tools to build DApps. Bridging Linux and mainstream software with Injective will be an important catalyst for broad adoption of both technologies,” said Erick de Moura, Cartesi’s CEO.
The community also plans to launch new derivative products that utilize the native Cartesi token, thereby offering new avenues for individuals to access the Cartesi network itself.
“Our work with Cartesi will be a tremendous boon for broad developer adoption within the decentralized trading ecosystem. Both projects are part of the Binance family, so it is an exciting step in our journey to deepen this relationship further,” said Eric Chen, Injective Labs CEO.
Conclusion: A Developer Friendly Derivatives Exchange
This integration is important in that it serves as an additional avenue through which mainstream developers and audiences can interact with Injective moving forward. Injective has consistently proven limitless capabilities for the launch of new derivative products and work with Cartesi only helps to solidify this goal.
Cartesi is taking smart contracts to the next level. It is solving the urgent problem of scalability and high fees by implementing a variant of optimistic roll-ups. Most notably, Cartesi is revolutionizing smart contract programming by allowing developers to code with mainstream software stacks. Noether is Cartesi’s side-chain that’s optimized for ephemeral data, providing low-cost data availability to DApps.
Injective is the first cross-chain protocol built for decentralized finance applications. On the Injective exchange, anyone can access, create, and trade unlimited DeFi markets such as futures and perpetuals. Developers can also build cross-chain Ethereum-compatible projects that are lightning fast and achieve instant transaction finality. Injective is backed by a prominent group of stakeholders including Binance, Pantera Capital and Mark Cuban.
