Wikipedia won’t take crypto anymore

Wikimedia is the non-profit firm behind Wikipedia and a host of other sites that operate under similar principles, and has the goal of “developing and maintaining open content” and funding it. Now, after four months of community discussion and argument, it has announced that it will no longer be taking donations in cryptocurrency.

The ‘no crypto’ campaign was started by the multi-talented Molly White, a software engineer, the creator of Web3 Is Going Just Great, a Wikipedia editor with the unbeatable name GorillaWarfare, and a sworn enemy of crypto-bros everywhere. White made a Wikimedia ‘request for comment’ which ran from January 10 to April 12, during which time the community argued both sides of the crypto donation issue.
