Aron also adds that Dogecoin will be the next cryptocurrency added by the cinema giant.
Moreover, the 67-year-old CEO recently confirmed that AMC would also add Shiba Inu, another popular joke cryptocurrency with a rapidly growing community.
The world’s largest movie theater chain initially announced its plan to start accepting Bitcoin in early August.
In mid-September, Aron also tweeted about the company’s plan to add several major altcoins before he posted Twitter polls about Dogecoin and Shiba Inu.
In early October, AMC allowed its customers to purchase electronic gift cards with several cryptocurrencies, including Dogecoin.
Despite a better-than-expected earnings report, the AMC stock dropped as much as 17% this week before rebounding slightly on Thursday. According to a recent regulatory filing, Aron recently sold $25 million worth of shares.
