American cinema chain AMC Theaters has integrated Dogecoin (DOGE), Shiba Inu (SHIB) and other cryptocurrencies into its mobile app.
According to the CEO of the company Adam Aron, the innovation was made possible thanks to the BitPay cryptocurrency processing service.
In order for the new feature to appear, you need to update the mobile application to the latest version.
AMC Theaters is one of the largest film distribution networks in the US and Europe. It owns over 950 cinemas and 10,500 screens worldwide. It also operates its own online cinema.
In September 2021, the head of the cinema chain launched a survey to add support for Dogecoin. Twitter users supported the idea – in October, the company integrated the payment of gift cards using meme-cryptocurrency.
In the same month, Aron launched a similar survey about adding support for Shiba Inu, a clone of Dogecoin. More than 153,000 people took part in it – the idea was supported by more than 81% of respondents.
In November, AMC Theaters began accepting Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin as a means of online payment. 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.
