A week after announcing the inclusion of Bitcoin as a payment method, American theater chain AMC may soon begin accepting Dogecoin. AMC will soon allow customers to buy movie tickets and offer discounts through multiple cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum and Litecoin. According to media reports, supporters of Dogecoin have been attacking AMC, requiring the inclusion of cryptocurrencies based on memes. Therefore, if AMC should allow Dogecoin to join it, AMC now seems to be seeking public opinion.

Adam Aron, the CEO of AMC, posted a poll on Twitter asking his 171,000 followers to vote on the night of Tuesday, September 21. At the time of writing, the post had 117,026 votes, of which nearly 70% of voters were in favor of accepting Dogecoin supported by Elon Musk. On the other hand, 15% of voters in the second-ranked voting option said that using Dogecoin as a payment option is a “waste of energy”.

Based on comments, the public’s response to this development seems to support the acceptance of Dogecoin as a ticket payment option.

“This is great. Now maybe stock options for employees like Walmart. Simple salary deduction. Minimum investment of $5 per month,” Twitter user @卡斯特玩具 Said.

Although some people thank the AMC CEO for listening to the public’s request, others emphasized that Dogecoin has a lower value than Bitcoin and Ethereum, allowing more people to use cryptocurrency to facilitate payments. At 5 pm on Wednesday, September 22, Dogecoin in India is priced at Rs. 16.3 (US$0.22).

The sentiment towards cryptocurrencies in many parts of the world is undergoing positive and acceptable changes.
