Aron was fascinated with the level of engagement his Twitter poll received, mentioning that it attracted a whopping 4.2 million views.

Roughly 140,000 users have participated in the voting process, with 77% of them supporting the initiative.    

AMC will have to look for a technical solution that will make it possible for its theaters to accept the meme cryptocurrency.

According to an earlier announcement made by Aron, the cinema theater giant will also add Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin payment options by the end of 2021.

The shares of AMC are up 1.7% at the time of writing.
