The CEO took to Twitter to ask if AMC should include the Shiba Inu token in the list of cryptocurrencies that it accepts as a payment method.
America’s number one movie theater chain, AMC, continues to venture into the digital currency space, and is now considering adopting doggy tokens.
After reporting for the first time in August that you will start accepting Bitcoin for the payment of tickets, and then indicating that it will include another handful of cryptocurrencies, the company is now considering accepting payments with Shiba Inu (SHIB), the cryptocurrency doggy meme based on Ethereum that this week has registered a meteoric price increase.
AMC CEO Adam Aron revealed that the company is taking the token into account through his Twitter account. In a survey shared through the social network, Aron asked users if the chain of cinemas should accept the currency “dogecoin killer“.
As you know, now you can buy AMC gift cards using cryptocurrencies, and our IT group [tecnología informática] is writing code so that we can soon accept online payments in Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and Dogecoin among others. Should we strive to accept Shiba Inu as well?
TWITTER POLL # 2: As you know, you can now purchase AMC gift cards using cryptocurrency, and our IT group is writing code so that soon we can accept online payments in Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and Dogecoin among others. Should we strive to take Shiba Inu too?

At the time of this writing, more than 80,000 have already participated in the survey and it appears that the majority are in favor of the adoption of SHIB. As he was able to know DailyBitcoin82.2% of the votes are in favor of including the puppy token. Another 7.2% also agreed with the option “the more the merrier“. Meanwhile, about 10% did not agree.
AMC may soon accept SHIB
The movie giant adopted Dogecoin (DOGE) at the beginning of the month for the payment of gift cards and other products after conducting a similar survey on Twitter. As reported DailyBitcoin, Aron published a query in late September to test the waters around the cryptocurrency DOGE. Then, a month later, following the agreement of the majority, the company chose to include the doggie cryptocurrency. At the time, even the self-proclaimed billionaire “father of DOGEElon Musk voted in favor of the initiative.
The measure of adoption of Dogecoin for the payment of electronic gift cards is a step prior to what is coming towards the end of the year: accepting cryptocurrencies for the payment of tickets. As announced by the company, Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dogecoin and other digital assets will be added to forms of payment for tickets by the end of 2021.
Is very AMC may also decide to include Shiba Inu on this list, taking into account the massive number of votes in favor and the response the company has taken to the results of its other inquiries in the past. It should be noted that Aron’s public consultation on Twitter still has several days left, as it concludes next Tuesday.
This week, the doggy cryptocurrency caught the eye after posting significant price increases. Shiba Inu It was up more than 250% in the last week and hit a new all-time price high of $ 0.00008. The rise has positioned him above Dogecoin in terms of market capitalization.
