Despite being born out of a mere meme, Dogecoin [DOGE] was seen garnering immense popularity. The kind that several assets albeit existing for so many years have failed to amass. Tesla’s CEO, Elon Musk’s endorsements, and Gen Z’s newfound love for the asset certainly proved to be beneficial for it. The altcoin even became TikTok famous and this pushed the price of the coin to a new level. However, $1 was never achieved by the asset.
With its ever-rising popularity, the asset managed to secure a spot on various platforms. Major firms were seen onboarding the asset as a method of payment. Now, after a long procedure, the world’s largest cinema chain, AMC went on to officially include Dogecoin into its system.
AMC showed its interest in crypto and revealed that it would onboard an array of assets like Bitcoin [BTC], Litecoin [LTC], Ethereum [ETH], as well as Bitcoin Cash [BCH]. The crypto community was clearly not satisfied with this list. The community urged the CEO of AMC, Adam Aron to include DOGE. Therefore, Aron went on to conduct a poll on Twitter, asking users if they wanted to see Dogecoin at AMC.
Not only did a huge majority opt for this, but Elon Musk went on to like the tweet. This was reason enough for the platform to onboard the asset.

In a recent tweet, Aron surprised DOGE fans by announcing the inclusion of the asset into its payments system. He revealed that users would be able to pay via crypto through the payments facilitator, BitPay.
The tweet read,
“Huge news Dogecoin fans! As we work to accept online crypto payments, now you can buy
@AMCTheatres digital gift cards (up to $200 per day) with Dogecoin and other cryptocurrency using a BitPay Wallet. Accepted on our web site, mobile app, and in theatres.”
DOGE was responding quite well to the tweet. The altcoin, during the time of writing, was trading for $0.26 with a 10.74% surge in the last 24-hours. The previous seven days were extremely fruitful for the asset as it bagged gains up to 30%.
