Uber Health gets in on blockchain

Uber's healthcare subsidiary announced July 9 that the company has partnered with blockchain startup Solve.Care, according to Forbes.

Per the partnership, Solve.Care clients will be able to schedule and book rides to healthcare appointments through Uber Health. Users can then pay for the services using Solve.Care's native token.

This is Uber Health's first step toward using cryptocurrency, Forbes reports.

Solve.Care customers won't pay Uber drivers directly in cryptocurrency. Instead, they will have the option to pay using Solve.Care's token or a different digital token and Solve.Care will settle the payments with the drivers.
