AMC Theatres, a pro-crypto movie theatre operator in the United States, has updated its mobile app to accept Dogecoin (DOGE), Shibu Inu (SHIB), and other cryptocurrencies as payment.

On November 12, 2022, AMC Theatres began accepting cryptocurrency payments, allowing consumers to purchase movie tickets online using Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and Litecoin (LTC) (LTC).

Adam Aron, the CEO of AMC Theatres, told users in a tweet on Jan. 6, 2022, that meme currencies DOGE and SHIB would be included by March. Aron’s team delivered, albeit a little late.

AMC Theatres iOS and Android mobile apps will take crypto payments

According to Aron’s release, the AMC Theatres iOS and Android mobile apps will be able to take cryptocurrency payments thanks to a partnership with BitPay, a bitcoin payment service provider.

The names of the other new cryptocurrencies that will be supported have yet to be released. Users in the United States should download the most recent version of the mobile app in order to take advantage of the functionality.

BitPay adds support for Bitcoin payments to Apple Pay

Nium, a Singapore-based cross-border payments service, has partnered with BitPay to create an API-based solution that allows businesses to accept crypto payments, starting with BTC and ETH.

As previously reported, BitPay converts cryptocurrency payments and sends them to businesses’ accounts in US dollars or other fiat currencies the next working day.
