Of late, the crypto industry has been recognized by the prominent altcoin, Shiba Inu [SHIB]. Despite being new to the market, SHIB managed to steer the attention of the entire globe towards itself. The hype surrounding meme coins and Shiba Inu’s rivalry with the OG meme coin, Dogecoin [DOGE] certainly put SHIB under the spotlight. Therefore, several platforms across the world decided to onboard the emerging asset. The world’s largest movie chain, AMC mirrored this emotion and is all set to include SHIB in its latest crypto-venture.
A couple of months ago, AMC Theatres announced its entry into the crypto-verse. The CEO of the firm, Adam Aron previously revealed that an array of crypto assets would be used for payments in the cinema chain. While Bitcoin [BTC], Ethereum [ETH], Litecoin [LTC], and Bitcoin Cash [BCH] are currently being used for payments in the platform, Dogecoin [DOGE], as well as Shiba Inu, were still on hold.
As the hype around Shiba Inu progresses, AMC didn’t want to delay the inclusion of the altcoin. Consequently, the CEO took to Twitter and announced that the SHIB Army could expect the inclusion of their favorite asset on AMC in the next 60 to 120 days.
Shiba Inu makes it to the movies
In a recent tweet, CEO Aron revealed that the leading payment processing firm, BitPay had joined hands with AMC to facilitate SHIB payments. The tweet further read,
“Attention #SHIBArmy: Our friends @Bitpay decided to support Shiba Inu specifically because I asked, so AMC can take Shiba Inu for online payments of movie tickets and concessions. @AMCTheatres to be the first @bitpay client to accept Shiba Inu. Timing 60-120 days. This is a WOW!”
Even though Shiba Inu made it to the cut later than Dogecoin, information pertaining to the inclusion of the latter was still under the wraps. This further led to the Doge army urging Adam Aron to include Dogecoin into AMC at the earliest.
Additionally, both SHIB and DOGE made it to AMC following a Twitter poll by CEO Aron.
Furthermore, during press time, SHIB was seen imitating the ongoing bearish momentum. However, it was experiencing dainty damage when compared to the other assets in the market.
