AMC Entertainment chairman-CEO Adam Aron said the chain will be technologically equipped to start accepting Bitcoin payments for U.S. movie tickets and concessions ordered online by the end of the year, which raises a very personal question: How do I feel about buying a slice of pizza and a Diet Coke with four (4) bitcoins back in April 2011?
Back then, 1 BTC was worth about $1. That’s the only purchase I ever made with the bitcoins I mined from 2009-2012. (I stopped mining them in 2012.) Looking back, lunch that day cost me roughly $185,000. To tell you the truth, the pizza was pretty good, but I get a bit of an upset stomach when I think about it.
