Floki Inu’s aggressive marketing assault has backfired
A barrage of ads aimed at promoting Floki Inu, one of the top Elon Musk-inspired dog coins, has sparked a clampdown following the coin’s aggressive campaign in London, according to a report by Business Insider.
Chris Reader, TfL’s head of commercial media, says that all advertisers have to comply with its policy:
When reviewing copy now from cryptocurrency brands who wish to advertise on our estate, we ensure that campaigns contain sufficient information to comply with both our policy and the ASA [Advertising Standards Authority] ruling.
Floki Inu’s massive ad campaign that portrays the obscure canine coin as the next big thing took over the London Underground for nearly a month.
Its organizers wanted to appeal to those who missed Dogecoin and Shiba Inu but wanted to become part of the canine mania:
Missed DOGE? Get FLOKI.
They also appeared on double-deckers throughout the city. It is not clear who is responsible for the marketing assault on London’s transportation system.
The launch of the campaign preceded a massive price spike. Floki Inu, which was named after Elon Musk’s Shiba Inu dog, is up 251% over the past 30 days.
Calls for a blanket crypto ad ban
Last week, Sian Berry, a member of the Green Party London Assembly, called for banning crypto ads altogether in order to make sure that they do not harm potential buyers.
Like gambling ads, which we have finally got the Mayor to remove, there is no way our public services should be used to advertise these unregulated, risky schemes to Londoners. I asked for a ban in July and I am still pushing.

Regulators are trying to grapple with invasive and misleading crypto ads throughout the globe.
As reported by U.Today, the Indian government is looking to prohibit crypto ads after local companies started promising big returns.
Floki Inu Price Analysis: FLOKI Should Defend The $0.0001743 To Sustain The Uptrend
Floki Inu price is up 9% on the day and trades in the red after recording three straight bullish sessions between November 28 and December 02. Things are looking good for traders on the daily timeframe but for traders on the shorter time frames, caution should be taken as FLOKI threatens to fall further.
However, if FLOKI is sustained above the 200 period Simple Moving Average (SMA) it might make an impressive comeback with $0.0002050 in the offing.
Floki Inu Price Bulls Should Defend The 200 SMA Support
Floki Inu (FLOKI) is trading at $0.0001775 above the 200-period Simple Moving Average (SMA) at $0.0001743.
Defending this support is crucial for the meme coin bulls as losing this support will pull the FLOKI price towards the $0.00060 psychological level. A drop further could see FLOKI/USDT drop further to tag the $0.00057 level were the 50 and 100 SMAs converge.
This bearish outlook is validated by the downward movement of the Relative Strength Index (RSI) indicator and the Movign Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator. Also, note that the MACD is about to sent a call to sell FLOKI which might take place in the near term when the 12-exponential moving average (EMA) crosses below the 26 EMA.

On the upside, if Floki Inu price sustains above the 200 SMA, it will make a sharp upswing towards the November 23 intraday high above $0.000205. If this happens, it will represent a 17% upswing from the current price.
The RSI shows that FLOKI was previously in the overbought region indicating that the bulls might still be focused to take Floki Inu higher. Moreover, the MACD line (blue) is positioned above the signal line (orange) indicating that the market is still bullish. Furthermore, the MACD is positioned above the zero line in the positive region indicating that the market sentiment for Floki Inu is positive adding credence to the optimistic outlook.
Floki Inu Price Prediction: Expect FLOKI To Make A 44% Upswing To $0.0002350
Floki Inu price is trading at the $0.0001655 with a bearish bias amid immense pressure from the upper boundary of the descending channel and 100-period simple moving average (SMA) around $0.0001750. FLOKI bulls are struggling to break out of the descending channel but face stiff resistance upwards.
Floki Inu Price Could Rise To $0.0002350
Floki Inu (FLOKI) is on the path to recovery after successfully bouncing off the $0.0001227 embraced by the middle boundary of the falling parallel channel. This bounce back took FLOKI price to a high of $0.0001760 before being rejected by the 100 SMA at around $0.0001750.
This was a 45% rise that saw Floki Inu price flip the 50 SMA from resistance to support. At the time of writing, FLOKI is fighting immense resistance from the upper boundary of the descending channel at $0.000169 and the 10 SMA at $0.0001750.
A bullish break out above this level could see Floki Inu price rise to retest the resistance from the 200 SMA currently at $0.0002171.
If FLOKI bulls overcome the resistance from the said level, the meme coin could rise to tag the November 19 range high around $0.0002350 representing a 44% upswing from the current price.

Note that the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator is upward moving and has just crossed the zero line into the positive region accentuating the upward outlook.
Looking Over The Fence
Note that the Relative Strength Index (RSI) is showing a negative divergence is it turns downwards away from the overbought region. This means that the bears have not given up on pulling Floki Inu price down.
Hence, failure to hold above the 50 SMA will trigger immense sell orders that would see FLOKI fall to tag the middle boundary of the governing chart pattern at the $0.00010 psychological level.
A drop further may see Floki Inu drop to tag the $0.000050 psychological level or towards the target of the descending parallel channel at $0.000037.
