One of the largest cinema chains in the world, AMC Entertainment, is considering adopting Dogecoin (DOGE) for online payments.
Following the announcement that AMC will begin making online payments in Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Bitcoin cash (BCH) and Litecoin (LTC) by the end of 2021, company boss Adam Aron asked the community on Twitter whether the popular meme token should also be included.
Is DOGE one of the payment options?
“I sincerely want to hear your thoughts on this Twitter poll. By the end of 2021, AMC will use Bitcoin, Etherum, Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash for online payments. I hear from many on my Twitter feed that we should also accept Dogecoin. Do you think AMC should investigate the adoption of Dogecoin, ”Aron said on Twitter, allowing moviegoers to express their opinion on the matter.
