AMC Mobile App Now Accepts Doge Coin, Shiba Inu, and Other Cryptocurrencies

Last updated:

American movie theater chain AMC Theatres has updated its mobile app to accept Dogecoin (DOGE), Shiba Inu (SHIB) and other cryptocurrencies as payment for AMC’s U.S. theatres.

Previously, AMC Theatres started accepting crypto payments last November.  It allowed users to buy movie tickets online using Ether (ETH), Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Litecoin (LTC).

CEO of AMC Theatres Adam Aron promised via a tweet to include meme tokens DOGE and SHIB by March on January 6, 2022.  Even though it was delayed, the AMC team made it happen in April.

According to the announcement, the AMC mobile app for AMC’s U.S. theatres now accepts online payments using Doge Coin, Shiba Inu, and other crypto currencies via integration with BitPay which is a Bitcoin payment service provider.  In order to use this feature, users need to update to the latest version of the AMC mobile application.
