The Wikimedia community voted for the banning of crypto donations by 232 to 94, or 71.17%.
Dogecoin creator Billy Markus mocked the Wikimedia’s decision saying, “hope people don’t find out about the environmental impact of hosting Wikipedia servers.”
Several major non-profit organizations continue to accept crypto donations. In October 2019, UNICEF became the first UN agency to accept donations in cryptocurrencies.
Ukraine has also received over $50 million in crypto donations so far amid the ongoing war.
