This is the disruption economy.
Uber is going public today, following the footsteps of Lyft (how’s that investment going, public? Oh, down 24%…perhaps over-valued?).
Yesterday saw the largest car-share drivers’ protest nationally for getting the short end of the stick in the gig economic system.
Now, there’s Biticar.
Biticar is a 2018 startup that is disrupting the ride share industry by crowdfunding and offering itself as the “driver-friendly” alternative. Biticar’s new features include: higher pay, ability to earn Biticar equity, allowing drivers to set their own fares on some routes and better vetting of riders to ensure driver safety. Plus, you can pay with cryptocurrency. Happy IPO day and get ready to be disrupted Uber.
