Movie theater chain, AMC, is now going to consider Dogecoin payments, says the CEO. Lately, Ethereum, Litecoin, and Bitcoin Cash were added as payment with Bitcoin. Twitter pool by the CEO of AMC will decide the acceptance or rejection of Dogecoin as payments.
Movie theater chain AMC planned to accept Bitcoin payments by the end of 2021. Last week, AMC’s CEO announced to increase the list by adding Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and Litecoin (LTC) payments as well. The news of crypto payments for the online purchase of movie tickets was appreciated a lot by the crypto community.
The fans of Dogecoin took to Twitter and protested for not adding the Dogecoin payments for the purchase of online movie tickets. They raise their voice so strongly that it was heard by the CEO of AMC. CEO, Adam Aron, created a poll on Twitter asking the followers to vote whether or not they would use Dogecoin payments for purchasing online movie tickets.
Four options were given in the pool and he wrote:
I sincerely want to hear your opinion, via this Twitter Poll. By year-end 2021, AMC will take Bitcoin, Etherum, Litecoin, and Bitcoin Cash for online payments. I hear from many on my Twitter feed we should accept Dogecoin too. Do you think AMC should explore accepting Dogecoin?
More than 28000 people have taken part in the poll and 82% of people agree that Doge must be added as payment currency. People started to compare the AMC stock known as “meme stock” with the Dogecoin known as “meme crypto”.
At the start of this year, Doge was worth half a penny but it has risen more than 3600% according to the data from CoinGecko. And that’s even with DOGE’s price now down a whopping 72% from the all-time high above $0.73 set in May.
