CEO Adam Aron, of AMC Entertainment, the largest movie theater chain in the world and based in Leawood, Kansas, published a poll on the 29th of October exploring if people would appreciate the company accepting Shiba Inu as payment.
The company already accepts online payments in Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, and Dogecoin. With Shiba Inu crypto coins’ growing popularity, he’s now considering adding it as well.
TWITTER POLL #2: As you know, you can now purchase AMC gift cards using cryptocurrency, and our IT group is writing code so that soon we can accept online payments in Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and Dogecoin among others. Should we strive to take Shiba Inu too?— Adam Aron (@CEOAdam) October 29, 2021
There were over 150,000 votes in the pool, with more than 10K retweets and 20K likes.
Pool members overwhelmingly voted “yes” to Shiba Inu crypto being introduced, passing 81% of the vote for the “Yes Shiba Inu for Sure” option.
As part of its ongoing innovation, AMC is also considering launching its own cryptocurrency and exploring non-fungible tokens through partnerships with movie studios.
