Uber also has a block chain in the stock market which costs about $56.
Why is Uber so popular?
Anytime IT joined a business, the business became one of the best in the world. Uber is one of those businesses which matched IT and the internet so well. Maybe as it was a new idea and no one had ever combined Taxi and transportations with the internet, it became that much popular. But, as a clearer reason, we can say that it was the best among all the internet cab systems. Although Uber was not the pioneer in this issue, it is undoubtedly the best.
