The World’s Largest Taxi Company: In the future, we will accept cryptocurrency payments
Dara Khosrowshahi, the Iranian-American CEO of Uber, the world’s largest taxi app company, recently said in an interview that her collection will surely start accepting cryptocurrencies as a payment method in the future. He says company officials are considering the right time to start accepting cryptocurrencies.
According to Crypto Briefing, Khosrowshahi said that the customers of this program can “definitely” use cryptocurrency for their payments in the future. He also confirmed that internal negotiations on cryptocurrencies are underway at the company.
According to Khosrowshahi, the issue is not whether to use the technology or not, but the main issue is the right time to start accepting cryptocurrencies in the Uber Taxi app.
In an interview with Bloomberg today, Khosrowshahi said Uber would definitely start accepting cryptocurrencies at some point, adding that people inside the company were constantly talking about cryptocurrencies.
Khosrowshahi cited high commissions and environmental effects related to “Bitcoin and some other cryptocurrencies” as to why the company has not yet added cryptocurrency payments to its program.
Despite the value of digital currencies as a value storage tool, as the digital currency trading process becomes cheaper and more environmentally friendly, I think you will soon see us move a little more towards using these assets.
The CEO of the company, which is valued at $68 billion, stressed that now is not the right time to accept cryptocurrencies at Uber; But the company will definitely accept cryptocurrency payments “at some point.”
While Khosrowshahi made some positive remarks about the company’s future during his interview, Uber’s stock price has fallen sharply today and has fallen more than 6.5 percent since the news broke. This is a significant drop compared to the 2.6 percent drop in the Nasdaq index and the 3.5 percent drop in the Bitcoin price today.
