Perpetual futures contracts are a sort of derivative financial instrument that enables traders to speculate on the price movements of different assets without actually owning them. A perpetual contract, like a futures contract, is a derivative whose value is derived from the underlying cryptocurrency asset.
The new listing is expected to increase Shiba Inu's exposure, as Kraken remains one of the biggest crypto exchanges with millions of users.
Shiba Inu saw new exchange listings in May. CoinMENA, a crypto exchange headquartered in the Kingdom of Bahrain, announced the listing of SHIB earlier in May. Brazilian exchange Digitra.com also announced SHIB's listing in May.

Shiba Inu lead Shytoshi Kusama has left a message for the Shiba Inu community on Shibarium's Discord: "I'm here. I’m not going anywhere. For those of you that have been here for a while (and by here, I mean Shib), you know that when I’m quiet, in cooking up something. So, I’ve been very quiet because there are many great things in the works," he stated.
Kusama also reiterated that he will fulfill his promises to the community.
