Wikipedia Faces Attack For Accepting Crypto Donations.
Wikimedia, the non-profit foundation that owns Wikipedia, is on the shopping block of environmental activists over its policy of accepting cryptocurrency as a form of donation.
A proposal to the foundation from contributor Molly White, who goes by the user name GorillaWarfare, argues that accepting donations in cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin, bitcoin cash and ether signals endorsement of digital coins, which are “inherently predatory” as investments and don’t align with the foundation’s commitment to environmental sustainability. The contributor argues that Wikipedia risks damaging its reputation by accepting crypto donations, citing the recent decision by non-profit peer, Mozilla, to pause accepting donations in crypto.
