AMC's CEO posted on his Twitter if the theater chain should accept Shiba Inu coin as payment
The possibility to buy AMC movie tickets with Shiba Inu tokens may soon become a reality if the will of people conquer.
Adam Aron, the company's CEO, asked on Twitter early Friday morning if users would be potentially interested in paying with Shiba Inu as well. Currently around 125,906 Twitter users have voted in the survey, with almost 80% of respondents saying "Yes."
In recent months, the renowned movie theatre chain has shown an increasing interest in cryptocurrency. Its CEO discussed the possibility of releasing a company-specific cryptocurrency last week. AMC made it possible for customers to buy digital gift cards using Dogecoin and other cryptocurrencies using the BitPay wallet earlier this month. During a CNBC interview in September, Aron showed an interest in minting commemorative movie tickets as non-fungible tokens, or NFTs.
Shiba Inu surpassed Dogecoin as the world's ninth-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization on Friday.
The Shiba Inu ecosystem has extended to include ShibaSwap, a decentralised exchange, or DEX, in the light of a record-breaking run-up. According to data from Defi Llama, the total value locked (TVL) on ShibaSwap is $537.92 million. According to data, $236 million worth of coins has changed hands on ShibaSwap in the last 24 hours. ShibaSwap has two additional tokens in addition to its foundational Shiba Inu token. Doge Killer provides trading liquidity on the DEX, while Bone ShibaSwap is used to vote on governance protocols proposed by developers.
