The largest movie theater chain in the U.S. already accepts bitcoin, ether, and other cryptos.
AMC Theaters will accept Shiba Inu through BitPay wallets in 60-120 days, AMC CEO Adam Aron said on Tuesday.
- BitPay will start accepting Shiba Inu on Aron’s suggestion, and AMC will be the first to use the service, Aron said in a tweet on Tuesday.
- BitPay provides payment processing services for cryptocurrencies.
- Last week, Aron said AMC will start accepting bitcoin, ether and other cryptocurrencies for online payments.
- The theater chain will also accept dogecoin for the purchase of gift cards worth up to $200 per day, the CEO tweeted early in October.
