The community behind the meme-inspired cryptocurrency Floki Inu ($FLOKI) has created a petition asking Nasdaq-listed cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase to list it on its platform. The petition has now been signed by over 30,000 users.
According to its page on Change.org, the petition is asking to “get the recognition it deserves and get listed on Coinbase.” The Nasdaq-listed cryptocurrency trading platform notably listed FLOKI rival Shiba Inu ($SHIB) back in September, when it pointed out SHIB was an Ethereum-based alternative to Dogecoin ($DOGE).
The petition to get Floki Inu listed on Coinbase has been promoted by a Twitter accounting representing the team behind the cryptocurrency, which at press time has well over 200,000 followers:
Floki Inu is a rival to both SHIB and DOGE that was also launched on the Binance Smart Chain (BSC), an alternative smart contract blockchain that supports tokens with the ERC-20 standard. Floki Inu has made headlines last month after it launched an ad campaign on London’s public transport system with the slogan “Missed Doge? Get Floki” in a bid to “legitimize” the cryptocurrency.
It’s worth noting Shiba Inu supporters have been using a similar strategy, but to ask commission-free trading platform Robinhood to be listed on its platform. A petition titled “Kindly request of Robinhood to list Shiba Inu coin,” has at the time of writing over 518,000 signatures and is looking to get to one million. In mid-October, the petition had around 240,000 signatures.
It mentions that Robinhood has listed Dogecoin ($DOGE), a rival meme-inspired cryptocurrency, that was a “huge success” for the trading platform. As CryptoGlobe reported, Robinhood listing Dogecoin was very positive for the firm as its revenue increased because of a DOGE trading frenzy seen this year.
