Crypto at the movies
American cinema giant AMC Theatres is adopting cryptocurrencies for online payments.
CEO Adam Aron recently announced on Twitter that the company now accepts Bitcoin, Ether, Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin.
These line up alongside traditional payment options like Apple Pay, Google Pay and PayPal.
This already accounts for 14% of AMC’s total online transactions, Aron claimed.
Note that it doesn’t sound like you can use crypto to buy anything in person at a cinema.
And as for payment methods “already accounting for 14% of our total online transactions,” it’s not clear if that number refers to Bitcoin et al or all of the methods listed in Aron’s tweet. AMC didn’t respond to a request for clarification.
Dogecoin, meanwhile, will be the next digital currency accepted for online payments at AMC.
