AMC Theatres now lets you buy movie tickets with crypto

AMC announced in August that it planned to accept cryptocurrency in its theatres by the end of the year. Now, you can buy movie tickets with Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

AMC CEO Adam Aron made the announcement on Twitter, saying, “Big newsflash! As promised, many new ways NOW to pay online at AMC.  We proudly now accept: drumroll, please… Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin. Also Apple Pay, Google Pay, PayPal. Incredibly, they already account for 14% of our total online transactions! Dogecoin next.”

You won’t be able to use any of the listed cryptocurrencies above to buy movie tickets in person, as AMC Theatres is only accepting crypto payments online.


Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy backlash continues

On November 11th, Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - Definitive Edition was released on all major platforms, and so far, it has been a rocky start.

Since its release, everyone who bought the remastered Grand Theft Auto trilogy on PC has not been able to access the game. Rockstar has yet to give PC players an update on when the GTA Trilogy will be playable.

Along with the game being unplayable on PC, Rockstar’s Twitter support page has constantly been replying to refund requests since the game went on sale last week, and it’s understandable why.

On all other platforms, players have reported a large number of graphical issues, bugs, and progression crashes, making it clear that the remasters aren’t up to the standard everyone expected.

Rockstar Games CEO Thomas Williamson publicly acknowledged fan criticisms in a tweet, "As art ages, what was at the time a mistake becomes an homage, it becomes history. It's preservation is important. Han shoots first. One small step for man. Some mistakes should be rectified, and some should be preserved. Being on the deciding end is a heavy responsibility."

Xbox and Gucci team up for limited-edition bundle

As part of Microsoft's 20th anniversary Xbox celebrations, the company has partnered with Gucci to release a very expensive limited-edition Xbox Series X.

Microsoft and Gucci has created 100 "Xbox by Gucci" Series X consoles that come with matching controllers and costs a pricey $10,000.

Earlier this week, the collaboration was expected after the official Xbox account tweeted, “Saying ‘GG’ at the end of every game will never go out of fashion,” which at the time seemed like a normal tweet until Gucci replied.

The Gucci-branded Xbox Series X features a laser-cut monogram motif of the famous GG pattern that serves as both Guccio Gucci's initials as well as the gaming phrase Good Game. Two customized Xbox Wireless Controllers are included in the bundle, complete with the House Web's blue and red stripes.


Own and secure your crypto

If you’re into cryptocurrency and own crypto assets, you need a secure place to store your coins and tokens. You probably already know that you shouldn’t store your crypto on an exchange due to potential hacks, not being solely in control of your crypto’s private keys, and for other reasons, and so a hardware wallet is the way to go and the best option to protect your private keys, therefore, you should make the move to a Ledger wallet.
