AMC Theaters CEO Announces Date to Activate Dogecoin and Shiba Inu Payments

Adam Aron, CEO of AMC Theaters, has announced the actual dates to expect the incorporation of the two largest meme tokens, Dogecoin (DOGE) and Shiba Inu (SHIB), on the firm’s website and mobile app.

According to Aron in a tweet on 28th February 2022, BitPay services will be activated for AMC online payment on the official website on 19th March 2022, while that of the mobile app will be live on or before 19th April 2022.

The update implies that users of AMC Theaters will be able to make payments using Dogecoin (DOGE) and Shiba Inu (SHIB) via the crypto payments service, BitPay, on which they have both been listed.

Adam Aron tweeted, “This might rev up the Cryptocurrency fans amongst you. AMC IT says that BitPay will be live for AMC online payments on our website by March 19, and live on our mobile apps by April 16. Possibly a few days earlier. BitPay, and therefore soon AMC, accepts Doge Coin and Shiba Inu.”

Since AMC has been a pioneer in crypto acceptance and currently accepts Dogecoin as payment for gift cards through a partnership with Bitpay, full support for Dogecoin and Shiba Inu payments is not far off since they are the “people’s crypto.”

It can be recalled that AMC CEO also echoed the upcoming support for the top meme coins in January. Back then, he assured the crypto community that the full support for DOGE and SHIB is around the corner, most likely in March 2022.

Adam Aron wrote, “I have been repeatedly asked when AMC expects to routinely accept Dogecoin and Shiba Inu for any and all payments made via the AMC website and mobile app. I am being told that we are still well on track for the promised Q1 implementation, with exact timing most likely in March.”


Both Dogecoin and Shiba Inu enthusiasts are excited about this notable exposure that is coming to their respective ecosystems. Many believe that this is one of the big deals to expect this year.
