Uber Switches to Bitcoin in Argentina After Govt Blocks Uber Credit Cards

File under: Waiting for the arrests.

The Argentinian government has blocked credit card companies from dealing with Uber, causing the company to use Bitcoin in Argentina instead.

The city of Buenos Aires issued orders both to the national communications agency nd credit card companies to block the Uber app and deny the company use of credit card service. This prompted Uber to partner with Swiss Bitcoin company Xapo to enable payments through Bitcoin debit cards.
