Thanks to Binance Pay partnership with leading Bahraini payment provider EazyPay, STC customers can now pay their phone bills with Shiba Inu.

The development comes as demand for cryptocurrencies continues to spike in the Middle East and across the globe. STC Bahrain has become the first telecom operator in Bahrain to expand its payment options following the partnership to meet the increasing demand for easy-to-use crypto payments. Furthermore, the partnership signifies Bahrain’s commitment to advancing the country’s fintech landscape.
