The community behind the meme-inspired cryptocurrency Floki Inu ($FLOKI) has created a petition in which it asks to be listed on the popular cryptocurrency exchange Kraken, which has earlier this month listed rival meme-inspired coin Shiba Inu ($SHIB).
According to the petition created on Charge.org, which is yet to reach 5,000 signatures, the “volume FLOKI has gotten without any major exchange proves strong demand and interest in it — and a Kraken listing will mutually benefit FLOKI and the Kraken platform.”
The listing claims FLOKI is “the third biggest meme coin after DOGE and SHIB” and points out that without being listed on any major centralized exchange, Floki Inu has over 180,000 token holders. The petition points out Floki Inu’s “super aggressive” marketing campaigns, which as CryptoGlobe reported have made headlines in Israel and the United Kingdom.
In Israel, Floki Inu took over “180 billboards & signs” in Israel’s “20 most important cities” so its ads would be seen “over 47.6 million times.” The ad campaign, the team added, is “strategically designed to create awareness about $FLOKI to Israel’s savvy population.”
Floki Inu launched earlier a campaign 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.
Notably, the Floki Inu community has also created petitions to get listed on other major centralized cryptocurrency exchanges, including Coinbase and Binance. Its petition to get listed on Coinbase has already gathered over 30,000 signatures, while the petition for a Binance listing is sitting near 25,000.
Kraken, it’s worth noting, listed Shiba Inu after asking investors to signal whether they would support the move on social media. Initially, the exchange did not list the cryptocurrency and simply said that a cryptoasset’s community is “an important part” of its considerations before listing a coin. Shortly after, Kraken listed SHIB.
