AMC Theatres CEO Adam Aron said that the iOS and Android mobile apps now accept cryptocurrency payments thanks to a partnership with BitPay, a bitcoin payment processor.
AMC Theatres, a pro-crypto movie theater operator in the United States, has updated its mobile app services to accept Dogecoin (DOGE), Shibu Inu (SHIB), and other cryptocurrencies as payment.
On November 12, 2022, AMC Theatres began accepting crypto payments, allowing customers 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 the meme tokens DOGE and SHIB would be included by March. Aron's team delivered, albeit a little late.
Aron said in the release that the AMC Theatres iOS and Android mobile apps would be able to take cryptocurrency payments thanks to a partnership with BitPay, a bitcoin payment service provider.
The identities of the other newly supported cryptocurrencies, on the other hand, are yet to be released. Users in the United States should download the most recent version of the mobile app to take use of the functionality.
Nium, a Singapore-based cross-border payments service, has partnered with BitPay to create an API-based solution that allows businesses to begin accepting crypto payments, starting with BTC and ETH.
