While the deployment of Bitoro on Injective was met with positive sentiment, as evidenced by social media posts and industry feedback, the INJ token decided to act opposite.

Despite the optimistic developments surrounding Bitoro’s integration, the native token of Injective Protocol, INJ, experienced a notable decline in price, dipping by 8.52% to $28.43 at press time.

This drop, which has caught a majority of traders by surprise, follows a short-lived surge to $32.65 on June 12. Also, according to an earlier report, the price of INJ had become more stable as long-term holders weakened downside pressure.

In addition to the sudden plunge, the token’s market cap and 24-hour trading volume have also dropped significantly. At press time, the market cap had dropped by about 7% to $2.7 billion while the 24-hour trading volume had dropped by about 31% to $242,819,261, indicating active trading activity but also suggesting profit-taking behaviors among investors

The price volatility despite the positive news of Bitoro launching on Injective can be attributed to broader market conditions, profit-taking, and investor sentiment.
