American AMC very enthusiastic about blockchain: possibly own coin

The multinational entertainment giant from the United States, AMC, appears to be very enthusiastic about the blockchain technology. The company’s CEO is reportedly even considering launching its own cryptocurrency.

Research into issuing own currency

The entertainment giant has reportedly been doing a lot of research into cryptocurrencies and the blockchain behind it in recent months. According to the CEO, the company was very enthusiastic about this. During this investigation, it was also examined whether AMC could issue its own currency. The CEO said the following about this:

“There are many reasons why AMC could be a successful cryptocurrency issuer as well as a cryptocurrency savior. This is just one of six ideas the company is currently working on.”

Crypto payments by the end of 2021

It is not unknown that AMC is very open towards cryptocurrencies. Earlier this year it was announced that it wanted to accept Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC) and Ethereum (ETH) for their cinema tickets. Later, Dogecoin (DOGE) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) were added as possible payment options.

An important reason for adding cryptocurrencies as a payment option would be because their moviegoers would like to use cryptocurrencies as a payment method. This interest in cryptocurrencies is taken very seriously by the company, which favors crypto users. The aim is to allow these payments by the end of this year. This is what the CEO of the company tweeted on the social medium Twitter.
