The company is being quite active in terms of digital assets. Thus, in August it announced it intended to have the infrastructure in place to accept Bitcoin payments for its movie tickets by the end of the year.

The following month, the movie theater giant expanded those payment options to include Ethereum, Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash, while in early October, AMC added Dogecoin to the list of crypto payment options following a Twitter poll conducted by Aron.
