AMC CEO Adam Aron stated on Thursday that his movie theatre chain will continue to accept cryptocurrencies as payment despite the industry-wide crash caused by the FTX debacle. “We are not investing in cryptocurrency,” Aron stated on Yahoo Finance Live. “As soon as we receive the cryptocurrency, we immediately convert it to dollars. So we’re going to keep doing it.” In November 2021, AMC began accepting mainstream cryptos such as bitcoin as payment. In February 2022, the company announced that it would accept meme coins, dogecoin, and Shiba Inu through its mobile app.
