- Coinbase announces bitcoin secured loan service
- El Salvador will build 20 “Bitcoin Schools” with cryptocurrency profits
Aron also suggested adding dogecoin (DOGE) as a payment method in his tweet: “Dogecoin is next.”
In September, the AMC CEO had published a poll on Twitter to find out if the company should accept payments with the “meme coin” right after adding crypto payment options.
With an impressive number of respondents in favor of inclusion, AMC added DOGE as a payment option for its gift cards in October, but it has yet to introduce cryptocurrency as a complete option for purchases such as online tickets.
