HSBC, one of the world's top banking and financial services firms, serves millions of customers across the globe, so the news remains a big development for cryptocurrencies.
HSBC customers will be able to pay with accepted cryptocurrencies, Shiba Inu (SHIB) and XRP, including other crypto assets such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Binance Coin, Dogecoin and several others.
