AMC confirms that it will start to accept payments with Dogecoin and Shiba Inu in March 2022
Adam Aron, CEO of AMC Entertainment cinema chain, considered the largest in the world, confirmed that his company is on track to accept the meme cryptocurrencies Dogecoin and Shiba Inu in the first quarter of this year, specifically in March.
This is what he said on Twitter:
“I have been repeatedly asked when AMC expects to routinely accept Dogecoin and Shiba Inu for any and all payments made via the AMC web site 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.”

Aron announced in November 2021 that his company would accept DOGE and SHIB through Bitpay. However, at that time, Bitpay hadn’t started to support Shiba Inu. Aron claimed that the crypto payment processing company decided to start supporting SHIB at his request.
It is worth remembering that the announcement of acceptance of Shiba Inu was at the request of the community itself, which responded mostly to a survey made by Aron on Twitter in November, where he asked first if they agreed with the acceptance of Dogecoin, and later He asked the same question about Shiba.
At that time, the CEO had already anticipated that AMC will begin to accept Shiba Inu in 90 to 120 days, that is, in the first quarter of this year. In early December, Bitpay, which already supported DOGE, started supporting SHIB.
Before that, already in the same month of November, AMC accepted payments with Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash.
