Kraken’s SHIB listing was long overdue

Kraken’s Shiba Inu (SHIB) listing comes almost an entire month after Kraken backtracked on its promise to list SHIB.

On Nov 1, Kraken tweeted they would list SHIB the next day if their tweet gathered 2000 likes. Of course, the exchange’s product lead Brian Hoffman, who was apparently behind the wager, had underestimated Shib Army’s dedication. In no time, the tweet received thousands of likes and retweets. However, instead of listing the token on Nov 2 as promised, the exchange came up with an excuse that there there was “more work” to do as it moved through its token listing review process.

This, of course, did not go down well with the fans. They demanded that Kraken keep its promise, denouncing the exchange for its failure to list the popular meme token despite them having held up their end of the bargain. However, Kraken derailed the listing for an entire month. 

Now that SHIB has made it on the Kraken list, fans can celebrate. As trading begins on the exchange tomorrow, the meme token will look to at least double its rally. SHIB currently holds a 50% gap between its all-time high of last month.
