The cryptocurrency market correction continues with the majority of coins on the market rapidly losing their value. Bitcoin is trading with an 8% loss and Ethereum has dipped by 6.5%. Smaller altcoins like Doge and Shiba trading with around a 10% loss but their main competitor, FLOKI, is now up 33%.

Pump's fuel

While the current market correction remains mostly technical, the fuel for the pump of Floki based on the announcement of a partnership with Kerala Blasters FC, which is one of the most popular football clubs in India.

Previously, U.Today reported that background market and on-chain data for Floki remain neutral with no big transactions happening and the number of whales that hold the Elon Musk-inspired coin decreasing drastically.

Though the initial pump could have started due to the big announcement, the token grabbed a few more percent after a few hours, which indicates that the current price spike is also followed by increased speculation interest.

At press time, Floki is consolidating at the closest resistance of $0.00021, with its trading volume also spiking by 76%, according to CoinMarketCap. The token's volume, unfortunately, cannot be properly tracked since the token is being mostly traded via swap contracts.
