An Uber driver in Austin is one of several drivers in Texas who are using the digital currency to pay their bills.
It’s not the first time Uber drivers in the state have started to use bitcoin to pay bills, according to a report by the Austin American-Statesman.
But the Austin driver, who asked that his name not be published, said the new method is different from the one used before.
Uber is not the only company in Texas to embrace bitcoin as a way to pay.
Another company, the gas station operator Tixico, is also trying to bring bitcoin to the gas pumps.
Uber has a bitcoin-based mobile app called “paypal” that allows drivers to pay in bitcoins, according the Austin Business Journal.
The company said the app was launched in September 2016 and has had more than 300,000 users.
But Uber, Tixio and the other companies that have adopted bitcoin are also competing for drivers with their own drivers.
Uber, for example, wants to recruit drivers to the platform by offering a $25,000 reward to drivers who pass an Uber test and are a “good fit for Uber,” the company said in a statement.
Tixico says it is recruiting drivers to its platform and that its drivers are being vetted through Uber’s testing and training program.
