FLOKI in Top 100 Cryptos: Big Threat for Shiba Inu (SHIB)?

Floki Inu (FLOKI) also known as the people’s cryptocurrency is gaining lots of traction lately and the buzz has refused to taper down. The latest canine-themed meme coin is inspired by, and named after, Elon Musk’s Shiba Inu dog! With the recent price rally, FLOKI has made it to the top 100 cryptocurrencies based on market capitalization.

According to CoinMarketCap, FLOKI is standing at 97th rank as of writing. It grew by more than 17.28% in the past seven days while most other meme coins like Dogecoin and Shiba Inu shed value in the same period.

Floki Enters Top 100

Apart from Floki’s massive price rally, its utility tools such as Valhalla – an NFT metaverse game, FlokiFi- a protocol comprising several DeFi products, FlokiPlaces, an NFT marketplace, and a crypto education platform, Floki University are key elements of its growth.

Now, Floki has flipped Bone ShibaSwap (BONE), the governance token of the Shiba Inu ecosystem to occupy the 97th position in CoinMarketCap’s top 100 rankings.
