AMC Entertainment, which is currently the biggest exhibitor of movies in the US, has informed, through its CEO, Adam Aron, that it has been able to convince Bitpay for lending support to the fastest growing virtual currency, Shiba Inu (SHIB). It will now be a matter of a few months when Bitpay would easily approve SHIB for payments.
It was only a few days ago when Adam Aron, CEO of AMC Entertainment, had announced that his company will be accepting certain cryptocurrencies. As of today, the commitment of AMC towards accepting crypto as payment has been successfully fulfilled. Already there have been several methods of paying at AMC theaters such as cash, debit/credit card, PayPal, Google Pay, and even Apple Pay. Addition payment methods that have been adopted very recently include crypto payments made in Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, and Bitcoin Cash. However, it is the utmost desire of AMC that it wants to add SHIB coin into the crypto payment mechanism as well.
In this connection, Aron had, earlier in this month, initiated a public poll from his official Twitter account. Through this poll, he showed his company’s utmost desire for bringing in SHIB coin as one of the accepted modes of payment. The poll sought public opinion on whether AMC should provide SHIB payment support or not. The poll unexpectedly garnered a massive public response in which the majority of them said that SHIB payment support must be made available.
It has finally been announced by Aron on 15th November 2021 that AMC has decided to bring SHIB on board. For this purpose, AMC has had to seek the assistance of the Bitpay App for making the SHIB payment mechanism possible at AMC theaters. In this connection, Aron personally went to meet the operators of Bitpay App and gave his best to convince them. While making the announcement of SHIB payment acceptance, Aron also disclosed the fact that Bitpay has agreed to lend its support. So Bitpay has now become an official partner of AMC for the purposes of lending SHIB payment support.
Now the moviegoers at AMC will have innumerable options through which they can buy and book their movie tickets. They can pay through cash or electronically or even through the use of multiple cryptocurrencies, including SHIB coin. However, SHIB’s induction will take a few more months before its final launch, said Aron.
Aron was also seen suggesting on Twitter that AMC is the first-ever movie exhibitor partner of Bitpay. Aron too shares a great level of confidence regarding Bitpay. He believes that there is no crypto payment app that is as good as Bitpay. Bitpay is the leader when it comes to transacting cryptocurrencies, said Aron.
CEO of AMC is keen on improving and modernizing the movie theaters of AMC which are spreading all across the US.
