Wikimedia, the non-profit foundation that runs Wikipedia, is facing internal interference in its policy of accepting cryptocurrencies in a free form. Most of them are environmental reasons.

This is incompatible with the Foundation's commitment to environmental sustainability.

Participants say Wikipedia risks damaging its reputation by accepting cryptocurrency donations, citing a recent decision by colleagues to join Mozilla not to accept free cryptocurrency.
