Kraken’s false promises anger SHIB traders

Crypto community unhappy with breach of Kraken listing promise

Shiba Inu

The community was not happy with the decision to list the token.

On Monday, U.S.-based cryptocurrency exchange Kraken pledged in a tweet that it would include Shiba Inu on Nov. 2 if it gets 2,000 likes on the post.

@BRIANCHOFFMAN says if we get 2,000 likes we’ll list $SHIB tomorrow – but he doesn’t think we can. #SHIBARMY where are you?

The tweet in question garnered 2,000 likes within minutes of posting and now has over 81,000 likes. Still, Shiba Inu traders were disappointed to see the token not even listed on Nov. 3, despite the company’s promises.

On Wednesday, the exchange confirmed that it would not actually include Shiba Inu in its offer as it “has more work to do” during its listing review process.

SHIBARMY We have heard you clearly!

​The community is an important part of all our lists, and you’ve made your support clear.

We have more work to do as we complete the listing review process.

Supporters of Shiba Inu were outraged after the platform reversed its decision to list the cryptocurrency and turned to Twitter Inc. TWTR -3.72%

to express your disagreement.

Some users decided to move funds to Coinbase Global Inc. after users claimed that false promises would damage Kraken’s credibility as a cryptocurrency exchange.

Due to Kraken’s actions.

I have been using @KRAKENFX since 2016 and now you have lost me as your client. I’ll take my pennies to @COINBASE, at least they don’t tweet empty promises and lie to their investors.

Be careful, siren. Saying you would list a coin and then not list it after a price move could be market manipulation. Especially when the effects of the listing are well known. Worse yet, if KRAKEN employees buy and sell coins around this knowledge…​ insider trading?


If the exchange I’m investing in is playing the game right now, I’ll move to another exchange…​ Very unprofessional…​ Maybe more…
