AMC Entertainment’s CEO, Adam Aron, put up another poll on Twitter Friday asking the crypto community if the largest movie theatre company in the U.S. should include ‘Doge killer’ Shiba Inu (SHIB) as a payment option.
As of April this year, AMC owned or operated approximately 950 theatres and 10,500 screens worldwide.
TWITTER POLL #2: As you know, you can now purchase AMC gift cards using cryptocurrency, and our IT group is writing code so that soon we can accept online payments in Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and Dogecoin among others. Should we strive to take Shiba Inu too?

At the time of writing, 121,566 votes were in with 79.5% saying they absolutely want Shiba Inu to be an option.
Aron’s first poll on Twitter was in September, when he consulted the public whether AMC Theatres should be accepting the leading meme coin of the time, Dogecoin. After 77% voted in support of Dogecoin, Aron stated on Twitter:
Your passion for Dogecoin is impressive. Tuesday‘s Dogecoin tweet was my most retweeted, most replied, most liked tweet ever. It’s been read 6.0 million times, more than the population of any of 31 U.S. states! Write this down: AMC’s focused on the opportunity of cryptocurrency. pic.twitter.com/hjpyS4jUbl
