About Lesson

Welcome back! In this lesson, we will continue our exploration of the mechanics of the Injective Protocol. Specifically, we will discuss the use of Ethereum as a base layer in the Injective
Protocol’s architecture.

Ethereum is a well-known and widely used blockchain platform that supports smart contracts. It’s the foundation upon which the Injective Protocol is built. But why Ethereum? Let’s find out.

Why Ethereum?

The Injective Protocol chose Ethereum as its base layer for several reasons:
1. Maturity: Ethereum is one of the most mature and widely adopted blockchain platforms. It has a robust ecosystem, a large community of developers, and a wealth of resources that can be leveraged.
2. Interoperability: Ethereum’s smart contract capabilities make it possible for Injective to interact seamlessly with other Ethereum-based protocols and applications. This interoperability is key to Injective’s goal of creating a fully decentralized trading ecosystem.
3. Security: Ethereum’s decentralized and secure nature provides a strong base layer for Injective. The security of the Ethereum network is well-tested and trusted by the community, which adds an extra layer of trust to the Injective Protocol.

How Does Injective Use Ethereum?

As we learned in the previous lesson, Injective uses a Layer-2 decentralized exchange infrastructure to process transactions off-chain before batching them together and adding them to the Ethereum network.

This means that while the bulk of transaction processing occurs on Injective’s Layer-2 infrastructure, the final transaction data is stored on the Ethereum blockchain. This approach leverages the security and decentralization of Ethereum while also benefiting from the speed
and scalability of Injective’s Layer-2 solution.

The Benefits of Using Ethereum as a Base Layer

Using Ethereum as a base layer brings several benefits:
1. Trust: Ethereum’s track record and wide adoption give users confidence in the security and reliability of the Injective Protocol.
2. Compatibility: Injective is compatible with all Ethereum-based assets and protocols, which opens up a vast array of trading possibilities.
3. Decentralization: By leveraging Ethereum’s decentralized nature, Injective ensures that its protocol remains fully decentralized, aligning with the ethos of blockchain technology.

In the next lesson, we will move from the mechanics of the Injective Protocol to the role of the Injective Token (INJ) within the ecosystem. Stay tuned! Before proceeding, ensure you understand the role of Ethereum as the base layer in the Injective Protocol. Feel free to revisit this lesson as needed. Happy learning!
