The team behind the meme-inspired cryptocurrency Floki Inu ($FLOKI) has revealed it’s going to build three schools in the near future: one in Nigeria, one in Guatemala, and one in Laos. The move is in line with the project’s principles, the team said.
According to a tweetstorm, Floki Inu will be building these schools in partnership with several organizations. The school in Nigeria is set to feature 6 classrooms and have a fully equipped technical block, computer lab, library, and administrative office.
That school, the team said, is being built in “partnership with Tabitha Cumi Foundation, a United Nations Economic and Social Council NGO that has helped empower over 10,000 women and girls through partnerships with organizations and governments such as the Embassy of Japan.” The school in Nigeria will serve an “underserved agrarian community with a population of about 3500.”
The team behind the meme-inspired cryptocurrency also noted that the school in Guatemala will feature a two-classroom structure, while the one in Laos will feature a three-classroom structure. These come through a partnership with Pencils of Promise, a “global movement that has helped build 580+ schools.”
Floki Inu, as CryptoGlobe reported, made headlines after launching an ad campaign in Israel that is being featured on “8 premium walls” as well as “180 billboards & signs” in Israel’s “20 most important cities.”
That ad campaign came shortly after an earlier one was launched on London’s public transport system with the slogan “Missed Doge? Get Floki” in a bid to “legitimize” the cryptocurrency and increase the “confidence of the average consumer” to buy it, according to the project’s head of marketing, which went by Sabre.
Floki Inu’s advertising budget comes from a 4% fee imposed on new buyers. The tokens are used for “onboarding influencers” and to “further develop and grow the Floki ecosystem.”
