The Robinhood Chief Operating Officer, Christine Brown, applauds the Shiba Inu (SHIB) community. But, she claims security is the platform’s top priority over the “short-term gain” of listing new tokens.

Brown was quoted Tuesday in an interview for the Crypto Goes Mainstream event streamed live on YouTube. When inquired about Shiba Inu, she stated:

“I like watching the community around these coins engage with us and let us know what they want.”

However, Brown would not admit if the Robinhood app would list the new token. Currently, Shiba Inu is the 11th-biggest cryptocurrency with a market cap of $30 billion.

The SHIB community initiated a campaign trying to coerce Robinhood to list the coin on the app. In just a couple of weeks, over half a million signatures were added to the Change.org application.

Brown iterated that Robinhood is a “safety-first company,” closely assessing the regulatory feasibility of its listings.

“Our approach is different than many other players out there who are racing to list as many assets as possible right now. We think that the short-term gain to us is not worth the long-term tradeoff for our users.”

Brown also disclosed that Robinhood’s crypto wallet waitlist had surpassed 1.6 million users. When launched, the crypto wallet will finally allow users to transfer crypto funds on and off the platform. This high demand shows users are eager to gain control over their coins.
