Most commonly known for running the traveling site Expedia, Dara Khosrowshahi has just accepted the CEO job for Uber.
Khosrowshahi made a bold move when Expedia had announced that it will accept bitcoin as means of payment back in 2014. Back then the currency was still quite new and not many institutions were willing to invest in it.
Now, it’s very intriguing to think how Khosrowshahi is going to experiment with the world’s best cryptocurrency and the largest ride-sharing platform. Travis Kalanick, the founder and former CEO of Uber never gave in to the ideas of having Uber accept bitcoin but, this could change under Khosrowshahi’s charge. With the increase in interest shown by major companies, one can only imagine how far Uber would go if it joins forces with the cryptocurrency.
Nonetheless, we have only well wishes for Dara Khosrowshahi as he takes on this new challenge. No doubt, he’s got the potential to take the ride-sharing platform to places.
