- The meme-based tokens opened gateways for its users to do online shopping using its assets
Popular meme-inspired cryptocurrency Floki Inu ($FLOKI) has made its foray into the e-commerce public. It has recently tied up with one of the prominent online marketplaces, AliExpress. With this landmark deal, the users of Floki Inu are now able to do shopping on AliExpress using the FLOKI token.
The token-based purchasing will take place on Shopping.io. According to reports, it would make over 100 million items available for shoppers to choose from. Furthermore, AliExpress’ outreach in 200 countries will enable the meme coin platform to extend its own operations to various regions across the globe.
For FLOKI, it is certainly a boost as its tokens will see a high rate of users globally. And for AliExpress, it’s about catering more options to their customers and opening to a new niche. This move will surely make them a frontrunner among the e-commerce firms trying to become the go-to choice for crypto users. Moreover, the platform intends to integrate more cryptos as a method of payment in the future.
It is a milestone achievement for Floki Inu as they will be able to expand their ecosystem with a very unique proposition. Notably, Floki Inu is inspired by the pet dog of Elon Musk, it is one of the meme coins that gain immense popularity in a very little time. And this new feature takes its utility to a higher level making it useful for real-life purposes.
FLOKI is relatively a new token that got listed on the leading exchange Binance a month earlier. It was introduced to the market on April 17, 2023, along with the hot meme coin Pepe inspired by the famous meme and cartoon character Pepe the Frog.
In its beginning, FLOKI was introduced as a meme coin venture. However, it soon widened the area of applications engulfing crypto debit cards, NFT collections, gaming, etc. On the other hand, the Pepe coin is a meme coin and has no utility on its own. Furthermore, it has been developed by an anonymous team and unknown origin has raised doubts over its prospects.
