The AMC mobile app for US theaters now accepts Dogecoin, Shiba Inu and other cryptocurrencies
Dogecoin tickets at AMC can be used to purchase movie tickets for those who bought them as a joke. The largest movie theater chain in the country AMC Theaters, an openly crypto-minded company, has recently announced its mobile app will accept Dogecoin (DOGE), Shibu Inu (SHIB), and other cryptos. Other newly supported cryptocurrencies are yet to be announced.
AMC’s mobile app Bitpay now allows theatres to accept online payments using Doge Coin, Shiba Inu, and other crypto currencies.
Aron’s tweet revealed that customers in the United States could update AMC Theatres’ iOS and Android apps via BitPay so that crypto payments can be made.
Dogecoin became accepted in October 2021 by AMC Theaters, but only through digital gift cards (up to $200 per day). However, AMC Theatres CEO Adam Aron confirmed its plans to accept cryptocurrency, not until January 6, 2022, when the Company’s proposed tokens DOGE and SHIB will be available to users.
The company first started accepting crypto payments back in November, which allowed customers to purchase movie tickets online using Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and Litecoin (LTC). The announcement led to social media explosion with Dogecoin fans demanding the meme cryptocurrency be accepted as well.
Aron tweeted a poll, he asked if they would use DOGE to make purchases at AMC. More than two-thirds supported yes.
Most people buy popcorn and tickets using DOGE with a simple set-up. Once you have added your AMC tickets to your cart, you have to select BitPay as your payment method. You are then free to use your crypto wallet or get an address to send your chosen token.
