Why It Matters: Floki has chosen to embrace fellow meme coins like DOGE and SHIB, seeing them as catalysts for its own success and as integral components of the meme coin movement.

"We absolutely love Dogecoin and Shiba Inu. Without them, Floki wouldn't be where it is today," said a Floki Core Contributor, who goes by the handle B on X, during an exclusive conversation with Benzinga, adding, "..there is “no rivalry between Floki and any other meme coins.”

The inception of Floki can be traced back to an event involving Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and owner of Twitter. It all began when Musk tweeted that he would name his pet Shiba Inu as "Floki."

Price Action: At the time of writing, FLOKI was trading at $0.00001551, up 0.16% in the last 24 hours, according to Benzinga Pro.
