AMC Entertainment Holdings (AMC) is about to put an end to Dogecoin and Shiba Inu lovers’ lengthy wait. From the beginning of the month, fans will be able to pay with the two dog-themed memecoins, according to Adam Aron, CEO of AMC Theatres.
As AMC makes an exciting announcement, DOGE and SHIB pump.
Aron stated in a tweet that AMC Theatres was ready to take DOGE and SHIB as a result of the company’s BitPay integration. In November of 2021, the announcement was made for the first time.
On March 19, BitPay payments will be available on AMC’s website. BitPay will be integrated into AMC’s mobile app by April 16 or a few days before, according to the CEO.
The announcement was greeted with applause from both joke coin groups. The move was praised by Billy Markus, a co-founder of Dogecoin. He mentioned that paying with DOGE at AMC Theatres would be entertaining.
thank you for the initiative 🙂

For a long time, the neighborhood has been anticipating the development. In November of last year, AMC began accepting Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and Litecoin (LTC). DOGE was already in the works at the time. Following a Twitter survey in which the SHIB community decisively opted for AMC to embrace SHIB, it was added to its plans.
DOGE and SHIB prices have also risen as a result of the current announcement. SHIB is currently trading at $ 0.000026, up 8.91 percent on the day. DOGE has likewise increased by 6.62 percent in the previous 24 hours, reaching $$ 0.13.
The acceptance of meme coins has been unparalleled.
Dogecoin and Shiba Inu are among the cryptocurrencies that are gaining traction in the mainstream. Dogecoin has been rumored to be headed to eBay, according to a report from The Street this week.
eBay’s CEO, Jamie Iannone, stated that the integration might be officially announced at the company’s upcoming investor day on March 10. A virtual restaurant with a Dogecoin theme has opened in Dubai.
In the previous three months, Newegg, Travala, and CoinGate have all integrated with SHIB.
