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?

Dogecoin Community Influence
AMC became something of a target on social media after Aron recently expanded the list of supported cryptocurrencies but left out Dogecoin. Instead, he announced support for Ethereum, Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash.
Dogecoin fans were quick to express their disappointment that the meme coin was not included. After all, Dogecoin has become one of the most high-profile cryptocurrencies since gaining the endorsement of Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
Instead of choosing Doge, Aron went for less popular cryptocurrencies such as Litecoin. Incidentally, Dogecoin was formed as a fork of a blockchain called Lucky Coin, which itself was a fork of Litecoin. For its part, Litecoin is a fork of leading cryptocurrency bitcoin.
Whether Crypto Twitter has enough influence to sway AMC remains to be seen. Aron’s poll is getting a great deal of support, including from Musk himself, who “liked” the tweet.
