In September 2021, the head of the cinema chain launched a poll to add support for Dogecoin. Twitter users supported the idea - in October, the company integrated payment for gift cards with the meme-cryptocurrency.

The same month, Aron launched a similar poll to add support for Shiba Inu, a Dogecoin clone. More than 153,000 people participated in it - more than 81% of respondents supported the idea.

In November, AMC Theatres began accepting bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin as a means of online payment. According to Aron, the company will add support for Dogecoin in the future.

Recall that in October, the CEO of AMC Theatres said that the cinema chain would consider creating its own token.
