INJ price hits new all-time high

Injective’s token INJ price rallied 147% in the past month and 64% in the past week. INJ continued to climb despite profit-taking by large wallet addresses. On-chain metrics support INJ’s price gains.

Whale transactions valued at $100,000 and higher climbed between December 4 and 19. This coincides with profit taking, as seen in Network Realized Profit/Loss metric. INJ holders are realizing profits in their token sales in December, as seen in the Santiment chart below.

The token’s supply on exchanges has increased between December 17 and 19. Still, it remains relatively low when compared to the past six months. The inflow to exchanges has remained nearly unchanged. Therefore, a significant increase in selling pressure is not expected.
