your idea is good but I dont think uber will like the idea of you getting tips in bitcoin.Are you in some sort of contract with them?I dont know how they work in your country but here in my country they have deal with local taxi drivers and they have to follow fares set by uber and if some driver charges extra,they revoke their agreement

I do not think receiving tip thru bitcoin breaks any rule. Tips are given out of the generosity of the passenger for the good experience or service. It is besides the fare. If there are a lot of bitcoin users in their community he might get a tip. Otherwise, it is a good way to spread awareness of bitcoin.

I cant  conclude regarding with this  because  its on Uber management  if they  allow this  kind  of thing  regarding  on bitcoin tipping but as you said   recieving tip would  not   break any rules  but  for sure  uber would  get a  percentage  of those tips if they are aware with it.
Yes, it is also very important to note that companies may not allow tipping. What I mean is that some company may have rules that prohibit the acceptance of tipping by its staff. I have seen many companies and restaurants and hospitals prohibit their employees from accepting tips. In such cases it might be a bad idea if uber is one of the companies that disallowed tipping.

To generate your own QR code, use http://bitcoinqrcode.org/ and enter your BTC address, you can also then upload to imgur for ease of access and further use.

Well guys i believe it's spot on but getting uber management's approval will be in the right direction. Since bitcoin transactions are decentralized and open to the public you wouldn't want to lose your job because of peanuts called "tips"

I like the idea of there being a QR code in the car and/or having an option within the app to send BTC to their personal wallet.

Hell maybe I should use Bitcoin as a topic of conversation during my next ride.
