What Is Floki (FLOKI)?



Floki (FLOKI) is the people's cryptocurrency and the utility token of the Floki Ecosystem. It is a cryptocurrency birthed by fans and members of the Shiba Inu (SHIB) community and is inspired by (and named after) Elon Musk’s Shiba Inu.

Musk is a prominent fan of Dogecoin, although he publicly denied owning any SHIB. Floki Inu is working on “four flagship utility projects:”

  • An NFT gaming metaverse called Valhalla
  • A suite of decentralized finance products launched under the "FlokiFi" umbrella.
  • An NFT and merchandise marketplace called FlokiPlaces
  • A content and education platform called University of Floki

The community calls itself the “Floki Vikings” in honor of Floki (Musk’s dog) that was named after a Viking character. Floki vows to take its community efforts seriously and has been listed several times in the Top 10 of LunarCrush’s social engagement leaderboards. Floki has also partnered with leading crypto projects that include ChainlinkTrader JoeApeSwap for its FlokiFi Locker digital asset locker protocol.

Floki is also sometimes referred to by some as "Floki Inu".

Who Are the Founders of Floki?



Floki is a decentralized community run project.

It was initially launched by an anonymous dev who abandoned the project shortly after it launched. The community rallied, took over, and relaunched the project -- making it a globally recognized crypto brand with 400,000+ holders in its first year.

Floki has a core team representing the interests of its community. The core team consists of pseudonymous personalities BSabre, and MrBrown Whale. The project’s lead developer is Jackie Xu, who, according to Floki, is a “well-respected and doxxed figure in the industry with over a decade of blockchain experience.” The team announced that Valhalla, the NFT gaming metaverse, was being developed by a team of 20 people with over 50 years of combined team experience.

Key decisions affecting Floki as a project are also made through a DAO vote where people vote with their FLOKI tokens.

What Makes Floki Unique?



Floki wants to set itself apart from other meme coins by combining the memes with utility. The team’s long-term vision is to create an autonomous and decentralized ecosystem, including strategic partnerships, building utility on the token itself, and developing use cases for the Floki brand through NFTs, games and decentralized finance features.

Its main flagship product is the NFT gaming metaverse called Valhalla. Floki Inu envisions it to be a play-to-earn gaming metaverse, where you can earn rewards for battling and trade or hold on to assets obtained in the metaverse. The team plans to take successful elements from games like Pokémon and Skyrim and incorporate them in Valhalla. Players will be able to capture and battle with creatures called Vera, and the game will also have a gardening system where players can tend to their crops, which can later be sold as NFTs. With Valhalla, Floki Inu tries to follow the path forged by games like Axie Infinity (AXS) that popularized playing and earning on the blockchain through games.
