The website of Alpha Topup indicates that the company has 150 million users from 160 countries and a network of over 1200 mobile operators.
Alpha Topup’s official tweet referred to SHIB as the “hottest meme coin of the year.” By allowing SHIB to be used for mobile top-up transactions, Alpha Topup may attract a new user base for the cryptocurrency. This could be a significant development for Shiba Inu (SHIB).
