The investment cycles of 2021 have taught us a lot. One of the most important lessons we’ve been forced to confront is how much power the pupcoin can have. It began with Dogecoin (CCC:DOGE-USD) and had moved on to Shiba Inu (CCC:SHIB-USD) within a few months, a token created to kill the very crypto from which it had been spun. Before the fall had even started, though, investment communities were struggling to comprehend the next member of the pack. Floki Inu (CCC:FLOKI-USD) was inspired by “Dogefather” Elon Musk’s infamous tweet that announced he adopted a Shiba Inu puppy of the same name. Since then, Floki has emerged as the current leader of the pack as the pupcoin frenzy continues.
Let’s Talk About Floki Inu Investments
Since Floki’s launch, investors have had plenty of questions, especially around where and how they can buy it.
Floki Inu can be easily purchased and traded on platforms such as Uniswap, PancakeSwap and Gate.io. The new crypto phenomenon may have only recently begun to dominate mainstream investment conversations, but there were investors who were early to the party. That leads us to an interesting question — If you’d purchased $1,000 worth of Floki Inu on Aug. 1, 2021, how much would that investment be worth today?
As it turns out, a $1,000 dollar investment at a time when Floki was trading at $0.000004436 would currently be just over $16,553. Since the beginning of August, Floki Inu has increased in value by roughly 1,555.32%. Not a bad return on investment, particularly as the token shows no sighs of slowing down.
What’s the Word on the Street?
Part of the reason for Floki Inu’s sudden rise is that social media users are bullish on FLOKI. The crypto is constantly trending on Twitter as its investor army, known as Vikings, speculate just how high it can go and try to hype it up. So far, it seems to be working.
$FLOKI keeps printing higher highs and all time highs.

Additionally, October has brought a significant marketing push from the team behind Floki. Social media indicates that they’ve been hard at work and are doing everything in their power to ride the current wave.
#FLOKI pretty much has London Underground locked down right now!

There’s plenty that we’re still learning about Floki Inu. One thing that we do know, though, is that anyone who invested in this token prior to the current rush is pretty happy right now.
Vikings have called for Floki to go to the moon. No one knows how high it can go, but everyone should be watching.
