- Shiba Inu (SHIB) can now top up prepaid SIM cards.
- Binance Marketplace app Alpha Mobile announced $SHIB support.
- Shiba Inu is pronounced ‘the hottest memecoin of the day’ by LunarCrush.
Blockchain tech solution provider UQUID greeted Shiba Inu (SHIB) fans from the future last weekend by including the popular memecoin as a payment method. From now on, crypto enthusiasts from 160 countries can replenish their prepaid mobile SIM cards on Alpha Mobile. Let’s look at how to access the app and top up your phone bill with $SHIB.
1. Access Binance Marketplace
Firstly, to find Binance Marketplace, a user has to access the More tab on the top right of the screen in-app. An expanded list of menu options will follow, where a user has to scroll down to the last section of the page to ‘Others.’ From here, we press on ‘Marketplace’, and the Alpha Mobile app shows up under the ‘Featured Services’ section.
As the Instant Mobile Topup app loads, there are now 160 countries to choose from. Crypto enthusiasts can easily search for a suitable recharging plan from the desired provider. These include popular prepaid mobile networks like O2, Lyca, Vodafone, Giff Gaff, and more.
The next step will be to complete the mobile balance top-up by entering the destination – your mobile phone number. After this, see if your mobile phone operator comes up on the list, choose a suitable mobile top-up plan, and press ‘Continue.’ Last, choose the Shiba Inu (SHIB) as a payment method and press ‘Confirm.’
2. Other Gateways for Alpha Mobile
The Alpha Mobile Instant Top Up app can also be found on the Gate.io marketplace and UQUID’s e-commerce site following similar steps. Indeed, Alpha Mobile has over 2,000 worldwide partners, including mobile service providers and institutional partners. Alpha Mobile enables crypto enthusiasts to pay their gas and electricity bills in SHIB in certain locations.
Following the news of the SHIB Token and Alpha Mobile partnership, the SHIB Army rejoiced over the weekend. At the same time, blockchain social data analysts LunarCrush labeled Shiba Inu ‘the hottest memecoin of the day’ on Sunday.
Shiba Inu’s adoption by a mainstream mobile service provider helped to achieve this social status. However, the breakthrough showed weak signs of bullish divergence, with on-chain signals still at a 3:1 negative ratio. At press time, the #16 ranked canine coin Shiba Inu (SHIB) is changing hands at $0.00000890, according to CoinGecko. Despite the 0.4% daily increase, SHIB still trades below two consecutively lost key support lines.
On The Flipside
- At the minute, there’s no standalone app for the mobile top-ups to be done outside of Binance or Gate.io.
- Due to location restrictions, the availability of Alpha Mobile top-ups can differ globally.
