Because they already have a marketing platform that will reach people blade wont. Never heard of blade before DDF, but ubercopter i did.
I'm not who you think I am.

Blade didn't fly any aircraft and I'll bet that nether will Uber.

Initially this will just be available to Uber Platinum and Diamond members

Uber says fares will start at $200, though they’ll have dynamic pricing

Uber is including the cost of an Uber to get to the helipad in the fare, which BLADE doesn’t do

Uber’s weight limit for a carry-on is 40 pounds, compared to BLADE’s 25 pound limit

For now Uber is just offering afternoon weekday service, unlike BLADE’s continuous service on weekdays

(Full disclosure: I tested the Uber Copter in the late morning; Uber typically offers it during peak afternoon commuting hours when flying over airport traffic really counts).
