Wikipedia doesn’t take crypto donations anymore

Wikimedia, the non-profit behind Wikipedia, has announced that they will not take any more crypto donations to fund their huge encyclopedia.

Wikimedia said that they received $130,100.94 worth of cryptocurrency donations only from 2021. This seems like much, but in reality, it is only 0.08% of all donations in that year.

You can read all about that on Wikipedia itself.

Their main reason behind this is that they have “issues of environmental sustainability”. Well, they could have just accepted that crypto money to fund some of their projects, which would help achieve their goals.
