Robinhood COO praises Shiba Inu as crypto wallet waitlist grows to 1.6M

Pressure is mounting for Robinhood to list one of the most popular memecoins on the market, and the waitlist for the platform’s crypto wallet has grown to 1.6 million users.

Robinhood chief operating officer Christine Brown has praised the Shiba Inu community but said safety was the platform’s priority over the “short-term gain” of listing new tokens.

Brown made the comments in an interview for the Crypto Goes Mainstream event streamed live on YouTube on Tuesday. When asked about Shiba Inu (SHIB) she said:

“One of my favorite things is seeing the community around these coins really engage with us and let us know what they want.”
