What’s new? The US cinema chain AMC Theatres has announced the launch of accepting cryptocurrencies as a means of online payment. The head of the company, Adam Aron, posted this in his microblog on Twitter.

Which cryptocurrencies will be used? Visitors to the network will be able to pay with Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, and Litecoin. In the future, according to Aron, AMC will also add support for Dogecoin and Shiba Inu.

Aron previously polled Twitter followers on whether the network should allow Dogecoin and Shiba Inu to be used to pay for digital gift cards. More than 68% of poll participants were in favor of the first asset, and 79,4% for the second.

What had happened before? The cinema chain announced ticket sales for BTC back in August, and in September it promised to add support for Ethereum, Litecoin, and Bitcoin Cash.

At the end of October, the company announced that it plans to create its own token. It, according to the head of AMC, is among the “half a dozen ideas” that the cinema chain is currently working on.
