The world’s largest movie chain, AMC has been making immense news in the crypto-verse following its interest in incorporating certain prominent coins. The platform had previously suggested that it would induce an array of crypto assets for payments before the end of the year. Now, as the year is on the brink of coming to an end, the CEO of AMC, Adam Aron affirmed that four assets would be made available on the platform for the purchase of tickets.
AMC’s CEO and Chairman, Adam Aron, has time and again expressed his interest in crypto. The world’s largest chain went on to catch the crypto bug as it not only decided to accept crypto for payments but also intended to roll out its native cryptocurrency.
Initially, AMC decided to accept just four coins for payments. This list included Bitcoin [BTC], Ethereum [ETH], Litecoin [LTC] as well as Bitcoin Cash [BCH]. Soon after this announcement, the Dogecoin community urged CEO Adams to include Dogecoin [DOGE] into the list.
The skeptical CEO wanted to know if the entire community really wanted the inclusion of DOGE. Hence he carried out a poll regarding the same. While a majority of them wished for DOGE to be a part of AMC, the CEO noted that it would take a while to include the altcoin.
AMC to allow users to book tickets with crypto
In a recent tweet, the AMC CEO made an official statement that customers could pay in crypto for movie tickets. The tweet read,
“Big newsflash! As promised, many new ways NOW to pay online at AMC. We proudly now accept: drumroll, please… Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin. Also Apple Pay, Google Pay, PayPal. Incredibly, they already account for 14% of our total online transactions! Dogecoin next.”
Looks like Dogecoin holders and fans have to wait for a while to avail this feature.
Additionally, Shiba Inu [SHIB] also made the cut. Similar to Dogecoin, SHIB was onboarded into the platform via a Twitter poll.
