This shows that the meme coin far outperformed the stock.

FLOKI DAO Votes ‘Yes’ to Burning 15.25 Billion Coins

FLOKI announced on Wednesday that the decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) had voted in favor of burning almost 15.25 billion FLOKI tokens, currently worth just below $3 million.

Notably, the decision was reached nearly unanimously.

The coins will be burnt this week.


The #Floki DAO has voted in favor of burning 15,246,000,000 $FLOKI tokens, with an overwhelming majority of 99.84% voting in favor of the burn.

In line with the decision of the Floki DAO, the tokens will…

The proposal went live on May 13.

It noted that the DAO held three key burn-related votes so far.

“In each of these cases, the decision of the Floki DAO was swiftly executed, making it clear that Floki is a completely decentralized cryptocurrency and the Floki DAO ultimately determines the direction of the project,” it said.

One of the votes focused on burning excess tokens recovered from the blacklisted wallet in July 2022.

Some of the affected wallets did not send in the tokens before the deadline. However, one of these recently sent more than 15 billion FLOKI (currently worth over $2.8m million), asking “for a small incentive in return.”

The proposal suggested giving the affected wallet 1% of the tokens returned (154,000,000 tokens), hoping to incentivize other affected wallets to send in the excess tokens they currently hold.

The excess tokens not returned should be considered burnt and inaccessible, the proposal said. The blacklisted wallets cannot do anything with them except send them to the Floki multisig.

FLOKI is down 1.5% over the past 24 hours, currently trading at $0.000196.

However, it appreciated nearly 14% over the past week.

Meanwhile, FLOKI also recently announced that it’s nearing half a million followers on its CoinMarketCap community page.

#Floki has just crossed 400,000 followers on its community page on @CoinMarketCap!

This is a very impressive accomplishment that moves $FLOKI closer to its goal of being the world’s most known and most used cryptocurrency.

Notably, Revolut Business recently listed FLOKI, enabling European commercial accounts to invest in the asset.

Shina Inu Could Hit $1 by 2050

In other meme coin news, by 2050, SHIB could be worth $1. This would be an excellent development for long-term big bag holders.

To reach this conclusion, forecaster Telegaon analyzed factors such as market trends, investor sentiment, trading volume, technological developments, and external influences, it said.

Per the analysts’ predictions, SHIB’s max price this year could reach $0.0000601.

In 2025, that price could rise to $0.0000728. At the end of this decade, we could see the token reach $0.000712.

Over the next few years, it could lose some of those front zeroes.

Five years later, we’re looking at a possibility of $0.00216, followed by $0.089 in 2040, and $1.06 in 2050.

The average price by 2050 could reach $0.89 and a minimum of $0.62.

Currently the 12th coin per market cap, SHIB trades at $0.00002396.

It is down 0.3% in a day and up 0.5% in a week.

Over the past year, the coin’s price increased by 175%.

It hit its all-time high of $0.00008616 in October 2021. SHIB has dropped 72% since.

The coin, however, is up a whopping 42,564,577.6% from its all-time low seen in November 2020.
