Cryptonote protocol was forked and infinium was created by the original developer in one commit on github and that was start of infinium network. But wasn't working on the project and left the project for good.
2015 - 2020
Many developers tried to get over infinium project, the first one was user called "Nimoria" (2015) on github has tried to resume development of infinium network with fix of old seed nodes and making pull request to original infinium repo, but with no sucess. Next one was campurro (2019) trying to work on infinium, he fixed compilation of original code in GCC 5 and was hosting seed nodes and mining pool a long time, but even he left the project. The next was helium2017 creating discord group for infinium at begining of 2020 and hosting pool and seed node. Helium2017 was the last person hosting infinium node when the next development team came.
In the october 2020 Jacob and 313 meet and started chatting about infinium coin. Jacob start's infinium pool for himself and 313, but he doesn't like the old code and both know in order to make the network functional again it will need at least code modernization. After many jacob's attempts he settled with bytecoin v3.4.2 as base code from what he made a fork and modified it to be compatible with infinium network and he made the first hardfork.
4 November 2020
Jacob released infinium 2.0.0 on github, with fixed inflation bug, and also lowered the the block reward in half. This version wasn't perfect, but infinium was finally usable again.
6 November 2020
Jacob released infinium 2.0.1 with fixed bug with connection between seed nodes and added checkpoints after 2.0.0 hardfork and the network is realy to shine in new light.
10 November 2020
Infinium total supply calculation was fixed in this version, becouse the original calculation mechanism was not good enough and total supply variable was overflowing. You can see details of update here. And becouse of this update we can finally know how much infinium is currenty in circulation🎉 ~ 46594060 INF in circulation

This is hardfork of infinium that add another mining PoW algos (cn/2 and cn/lite v7) to the still standing cn/0 (Asic mining algo). Also 1.5% developer fee has been added from mined blocks.
21 July 2021
Hardfork which removes cn/2 mining algo and replaces it with cn/zls, also developer fee was removed and block time decreased to about ~15 seconds to speedup the chain
