The CEO of the world’s largest movie exhibition company, AMC Entertainment, says his company is on track to accept meme cryptocurrencies dogecoin (DOGE) and shiba inu (SHIB) in the first quarter of this year.
AMC Theatres to Soon Have Shiba Inu & Dogecoin
The CEO of AMC Theatres, Adam Aaron, has provided an update on his company’s progress in accepting meme cryptocurrencies dogecoin (DOGE) and shiba inu (SHIB).
AMC Entertainment Holdings (NYSE : AMC), also known as AMC Theatres is America’s largest cinema exhibition company. Around 950 theatres are owned or operated by the company, and there are approximately 10,500 screens worldwide.
Aron tweeted Thursday that he has been asked repeatedly when AMC expects to accept dogecoin and shiba inu cryptocurrencies “for any and all payments made via the AMC website and mobile app.” He clarified that he is being told that AMC is still “well on track” for the promised Q1 implementation, noting that the exact month is most likely March.
AMC’s executive stated in November that Bitpay will now accept DOGE and SHIP. Bitpay was not yet supporting the shiba-inu. Aron stated that Bitpay, a crypto payment processor company, decided to support SHIB upon his request.
Aron stated that AMC would accept shiba Inu as soon as Q1 of this year. Bitpay began supporting SHIB in December after it had supported DOGE already.
