Already posted my comment in support of cryptocurrency donations.

Unlike banking, credit cards and Paypal, cryptocurrency is private, financially inclusive and allows pseudonymity. No government ID, full name or home address is required.

There are important privacy, safety and financial inclusion use cases for KYC-free donations. For many people, crypto is the only possible way to donate. It's sad that humanitarian/non-profit organizations like Wikipedia and Mozilla don't seem to understand this.

For folks that do add a vote, please be civil, don't spam. Yelling at the other side of the argument has exactly the opposite effect from what you want...

If you do comment: DO NOT MENTION THE ENVIRONMENT AT ALL.

Change the dialog to focus on the humanitarian benefits bitcoin provides persons in unstable communities.

Property rights for those whose governments cannot protect. Etc

UPDATE

The RFC has een closed, with 232 long-time editors of Wikipedia voicing support for ending cryptocurrency donations, while 94 opposed the move.

Now it is up to the Wikidpedia Foundation (which, I'm assuming, is simply a formality before finalizing the decision to stop accepting bitcoin).

Wikipedia is overrun with woke crazies. As an example, take a look at the original definition of cultural Marxism: https://archive.md/xIiRF

Now take a look at the 2022 definition: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cultural_Marxism_conspiracy_theory

Don't support wikipedia IMO

Two separate things happened -- The phrase "cultural marxism" became "marxist cultural analysis" over time in cultural studies, and conservative political theorists began using the term (capital-C) "Cultural Marxism" to mean something separate from "marxist cultural analysis." This paper is a good survey of how the meaning of the word has changed over time.

It's similar to the word "ebonics" which was the previous word for "AAVE" -- there is no page for "Ebonics" as it was originally used (being a synonym for AAVE) but instead its past meaning.

Bitcoin and Ethereum are the two most highly-used cryptocurrencies, and are both proof-of-work, using an enormous amount of energy

Jesus.. we’re gonna live the next years with this green-washing stuff, aren’t we?

WTF! Wikipedia is a joke. I wouldn't even notice if it was gone.
