Floki launches NFT sale in support of earthquake relief in Turkey
Floki, a meme-based cryptocurrency, launched a sale on its NFTs on Monday, 20th February, to support Turkey with the earthquake disaster.
Floki’s involvement in Turkey’s earthquake relief
Earlier in February, a deadly 7.8-magnitude earthquake hit Turkey and its neighboring countries. News reported more than 47,000 deaths resulting from the earthquake. Citizens in the affected countries have continued to receive support from various sources, including cryptocurrency companies.
Floki tweeted an NFT sale to support earthquake relief in Turkey. The tweet included a picture of Turkey’s flag and the sale information. Additionally, the tweet gave the price of 0.05ETH for an NFT.
Floki also encouraged users to buy as many NFTs as possible while the price was still low, stating that every cent raised would go towards earthquake relief efforts in Turkey.
The Floki NFT is available on the OpenSea marketplace. Besides Floki, other cryptocurrency companies like Binance, Bybit, and Bitfinex have supported Turkey with the earthquake relief project.
How did Floki gain traction?
Initially, Floki Inu was named after Elon Musk’s dog, Floki, as a meme coin. Fans and members of the Shiba Inu community founded the dog-themed meme coin. However, the cryptocurrency has evolved into a web3 project involving decentralized finance, NFTs, and the Metaverse. It is now known as “The People’s Crypto.”
In addition to its meme status, Floki engages utility and charitability in its project, thus setting it apart from other meme coins in the market.
Recently, Musk posted his dog’s picture on Twitter, saying he would make a good CEO of Twitter. The tweet stirred up the space causing Floki’s price to rise.
