In what appears as a response to the calls of its user, a Twitter announcement today by the CEO of AMC theatres, Adam Aron, has indicated that the giant theatre house has adopted crypto payment, particularly Dogecoin, for its E-Card purchases.
Aron wrote in the tweet, “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.”
AMC’s move adds to the global adoption of Dogecoin as a viable crypto asset. BitPay would help the theatre facilitate the newly adopted payment option through its wallet as a successful payment service provider which has rendered similar services for several notable companies. Founded in 2011, and has partnered with several other enterprises; one such is NBA team Dallas Mavericks.
In September, the CEO of AMC had conducted a poll that signalled the adoption of Dogecoin could come soon. At the time, he sampled the opinion of the Twitter community on whether AMC should accept Dogecoin for ticketing, and it ended in favour of the crypto asset.
Although this is not for ticketing, accepting Doge for Electronic gift cards is still in the same direction, and the Twitter community applauds the move. Even Tesla CEO Elon Musk liked the tweet.
Today, Dogecoin prices are up by 13 percent, alongside Shiba Inu by 2.3 percent higher over the last 24 hours. This year, the popular meme coin has gained 4425.05 percent and became a more popular crypto asset.
It is worth adding that the partnership with BitPay would see three other crypto assets, including Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, and Ethereum, being supported by AMC.
