Elon Musk wants movie theater giant AMC to accept Dogecoin, will Tesla be next?

As AZcoin News reported, not long after announcing his acceptance of BTC, ETH, LTC, and BCH for AMC, CEO Adam Aron asked his Twitter followers about whether or not they should accept Dogecoin. Perhaps with backing from the community, this idea doesn’t seem too viable and isn’t much of a push, but now the Tesla CEO, aka DOGE fan, has officially thrown his weight into the idea.

Elon Musk likes the idea of AMC accepting Dogecoin

As you can see, Musk pressed the like button as a support for AMC’s plan to accept the Dogecoin coin meme. As of now, UTC morning, with 106,855 votes, 70.5% of users support this idea.

Dogecoin co-creator Billy Markus urges his followers to not only vote on the poll but also like Aron’s tweets to gain more engagement. This is exactly what Musk did. Markus wants the Dogecoin community to get a bigger hit than AMC’s September 16 announcement of adding Ethereum, Litecoin, and Bitcoin Cash to Bitcoin.

If this campaign is successful, there is a high chance that DOGE will be accepted by Aron and recommended to AMC. If it is really supported, it is unlikely to be used much, but this is also a good marketing method for both this giant movie chain and Dogecoin.

Earlier this year, SpaceX accepted Dogecoin for a lunar payload mission called DOGE-1 that will be carried out next year. And Musk himself has done this in a similar way, asking Twitter users for opinions on whether Tesla should add DOGE payments. Will AMC and Tesla, who will accept this coin meme first?

Because as billionaire Mark Cuban said, Dogecoin is the strongest cryptocurrency in terms of merchant adoption because of its community.
