AMC Theaters to Accept Cryptocurrency

AMC CEO Adam Aron says the movie chain is planning to accept cryptocurrencies Ethereum, Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash for online ticket and concession purchases.

The announcement comes after Aron revealed on AMC’s second quarter earnings call that the company would accept the world’s largest cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, as an alternative form of payment for online purchases by the end of the year.

“Cryptocurrency enthusiasts: you likely know @AMCTheatres has announced we will accept Bitcoin for online ticket and concession payments by year-end 2021,” Aron tweeted Wednesday evening. “I can confirm today that when we do so, we also expect that we similarly will accept Ethereum, Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash.”
