AMC’s mobile app now supports Dogecoin and Shiba Inu, the two most popular meme cryptocurrencies

The official mobile app of AMC Theaters, the world’s largest cinema chain, now allows users to purchase tickets with the help of Shiba Inu and Dogecoin, according to an announcement by CEO Adam Aron.

Users need to update their app to the latest version in order to pay with the two largest meme coins.

As reported by U.Today, in early March, AMC finally added support for Shiba Inu and Dogecoin on its website with the help of leading cryptocurrency payment processor BitPay.

The company decided to accept the two cryptocurrencies in late 2021 after Aron conducted polls on Twitter to gauge demand.

Dogecoin co-founder Billy Markus has suggested that the cinema giant should also consider sharing the usage numbers to gauge how popular the new payment options are. Markus believes that such a move could stimulate more demand by promoting ‘competitive purchasing’.

AMC began accepting Bitcoin, Ethereum and several other cryptocurrencies in November after initially announcing the plan in August.

The cinema chain, whose stock became the darling of ‘yolo’ traders in early 2021, is known for its unorthodox decisions. Last month, the company stunned the investment community by buying a stake in a Nevada-based gold mining company.
