AMC Theaters Adds Dogecoin Support to Mobile App

The American cinema chain AMC Theaters has integrated Dogecoin (DOGE), Shiba Inu (SHIB) and other cryptocurrencies into its mobile application.



According to company CEO Adam Aron, the innovation was made possible by cryptocurrency processing service BitPay.

For the new feature to appear, you need to update the mobile app to the latest version.

AMC Theaters is one of the largest film distribution networks in the United States and Europe. It has more than 950 cinemas and 10,500 screens worldwide. It also operates its own online cinema.

In September 2021, the head of the cinema chain launched an investigation to add support for Dogecoin. Twitter users supported the idea – in October the company integrated payment for gift cards using the same-cryptocurrency.

In the same month, Aron launched a similar investigation into adding support for Shiba Inu, a Dogecoin clone. Over 153,000 people participated – the idea was supported by over 81% of respondents.

In November, AMC Theaters began accepting Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, and Litecoin as online payment methods. According to Aron, the company will add support for Dogecoin in the future.

As a reminder, in January 2022, AMC Theaters distributed exclusive NFTs to more than 580,000 shareholders.
