Christine Brown, the chief operating officer of Robinhood Crypto, lauded the Shiba Inu community for its participation with the company, fueling speculation of an impending IPO. Brown, on the other hand, was eager to dismiss any talk of a listing, citing corporate policy.
A change.org petition to add Shiba Inu to Robinhood presently has more than 525,000 signatures, proving the widespread support for the crypto breed.
Tristan Luke, the petition’s initiator, suggested that a Shiba Inu listing may be as significant for Robinhood as Dogecoin was a few months ago. He urged people to help Robinhood, which was the first traditional brokerage to make the switch.
Despite this, Robinhood is currently under criticism after a data breach exposed the personal information of 7 million of its consumers.
When asked when $SHIB would be listed on Robinhood, Brown began by stating that the Shiba Inu community has been vociferous in their support for a listing. From her perspective, she saw this as a plus.
“Seeing the community around these currencies actually engage with us and let us know what they want is one of my favorite things,” Brown said.
However, when it comes to confirming or rejecting a listing, she went on to clarify that it is company policy not to discuss listings until they are officially announced.

“The first thing we’re not going to talk about is our plan for what we’re going to list and what we’re not going to sell… So, I’m afraid I won’t be able to share that information here; I apologize,” Brown added.
Robinhood announced a severe data breach at the start of this week, affecting more than 7 million clients.
According to CNET, the breach included “different amounts of data,” with emails accounting for 5 million of the 5 million cases, and full names accounting for 2 million of the 2 million cases.
