Video - Bitcoin Q and A Will Uber and Airbnb Enable Bitcoin Payments

Why haven't Uber and Airbnb enabled bitcoin payments yet? Bitcoin would eliminate processing and conversion fees for all their international transactions. But the market of bitcoin-paying customers isn't big enough yet. It took fifteen years to centralise the Web, it will take fifteen to twenty years to re-decentralise it. The risks and difficulty of adopting bitcoin as a payment option means they won't be doing it anytime soon, but they may do it as a marketing gimmick.
