Cinema chain AMC Theaters accepts payment in Dogecoin (DOGE) and Shiba Inu (SHIB) on mobile apps

AMC Theaters, an American pro-crypto theater chain, has updated its mobile apps to accept Dogecoin (DOGE), Shibu Inu (SHIB) and other cryptocurrencies as payment methods.

AMC Theaters first accepted crypto payments on November 12, 2021, allowing customers to buy movie tickets online using Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Litecoin (LTC).

In the announcement, Aron revealed that AMC Theaters’ iOS and Android mobile apps can accept cryptocurrency payments through integration with BitPay, a bitcoin payment service provider.

However, the names of other newly supported cryptocurrencies have yet to be revealed. To use this feature, users in the US should download the latest version of the mobile app.

Nium, a cross-border payments company based in Singapore, has released an API-based solution in partnership with BitPay, allowing businesses to start accepting payments in crypto – starting with BTC and ETH.

As previously reported by Cointelegraph, crypto payments via BitPay are converted and sent to merchant accounts in US dollars or other fiat currencies the next business day.
