AMC CEO Adam Aron himself asked publicly on his Twitter profile whether his company should also accept Dogecoin (DOGE).
The global giant AMC has already decided to accept cryptocurrencies as a form of payment for entry into its theaters. The cryptocurrencies that will be accepted are Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH), but speculation is beginning to circulate that it may extend support for payments in other cryptocurrencies as well.
Aron wrote that he would like to hear from his followers, as many have written to him in recent days saying they also wanted to pay in Dogecoin.
I sincerely want to hear your opinion via this Twitter Poll. By year-end 2021, AMC will take Bitcoin, Etherum, Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash for online payments. I hear from many on my Twitter feed we should accept Dogecoin too. Do you think AMC should explore accepting Dogecoin?

Twitter community wants Dogecoin to be accepted by AMC
Of the 171,000+ followers to Aron’s profile, 140,000 more responded.
The result shows the first option clearly in the lead, namely that they must definitely accept it.
The victory of this answer is overwhelming: more than 68%, which is more than double of all three other answers combined.
The third answer (not important) represented only 7% of the votes, while the second (yes, but I won’t use) less than 9%. Only the fourth answer (it would be a futile effort) surpassed 16%.
These numbers seem to have been influenced by a large favorable vote, perhaps coming from the enthusiastic Dogecoin community, especially since, when looking at other tweets from Aron, on average, the interaction rate is one-tenth of the Tweet from the Dogecoin survey.
One of Aron’s most successful recent tweets, announcing AMC’s cryptocurrency payouts, had “only” 16,000 likes and 4,100 retweets, while the Dogecoin poll tweet had 13,000 likes and 5,500 retweets. Given these numbers, the 140,000+ votes seem too many to think they are coming from their followers alone.
Just think that the least voted option still received over 9,100 votes, which is in line with the average volume of interactions with their tweets, while the two negative responses added together collected over 30,000 votes, more than double their normal interactions .
In contrast to the nearly 90,000 votes cast for the winning response, the other three together barely exceeded 41,000 votes. It seems pretty clear that the Dogecoin supporters community has gathered to vote on this poll.
Dogecoin’s official Twitter profile has over 2.1 million followers in total, which is more than 20 times the number of votes collected for the winning response in this poll.
