Within 24 hours it caused an alteration in the market prices of certain cryptocurrencies, such as the Dogecoin and other obscure crypto coins which are closely associated with the Doge meme or Shiba Inu.

The post came on September 13, with the caption “Floki has arrived”. Floki became the reason for the major surge in cryptocurrency market prices. Obscure crypto coins which are related to either the doge-meme or the dog breed faced more than 100% price spike.

The Coin Market Cap revealed that crypto coins such as “Shiba Floki” prices rallied up by 958.09% within 24 hrs of the Twitter post. 

Other such crypto coins which are somehow inspired by the original meme faced a similar price hike. Floki Inu rallied up by 59.08% and Floki Shiba rose by 23.46%. Floki coin had a price surge of 250%. There were many “other alternative cryptocurrencies with similar names, including Floki Shiba and Super Floki” which had a spike of around 150%, as per the Independent.
