x4. I thought a while ago about suggesting a pledge to convince them, but figured we could never succeed in 4,000 years (they're ideologically inclined towards it, but they're too mainstream and large). When this happens for real, it will be HUGE.

This might happen sooner than we think.  Wikipedia has a lot of things in common with Bitcoin, and I can imagine that some Wikipedia admins who still remember the poineering spirit from the early days of Wikipedia, will want to give the Bitcoin project a chance.  Also, don't forget Jimmy Wales is a libertarian.

It's not 2011 anymore, and it's not April's fools. I thought I'd practise the dark arts of necromancy on this classic thread, now that Wikipedia accepts Bitcoin donations, this time for real.

(Necromancy is never pretty so apologies to anyone who read the thread and thought it's still a joke)

As I can see wikimedia is accepting bitcoin. Does it mean we'll get to see the bitcoin logo when wikipedia will raise donation ?

I doubt it, it's just another one in a long list of possible payment options.

And if they did...... And???

People will more likely see Amazon, Google, Microsoft, or any other large company accept Bitcoin.

Hey thanks for the update... I like engaging in this practice from time to time as well (bringing back posts from the dead, especially if they involve Gox or Silk Road)

PS - your paper on colored coins is brilliant!

According to the comments on that blogpost you still need to provide a whole slew of personal information when making a Bitcoin donation. Way to miss the point, Wikipedia ^^

You know things are looking up when you see places like Wikipedia start to accept bitcoin. Still got a way to go yet with other companies but seeing more accept it is a step in the right direction. Very pleased to see Wikipedia jump on the bitcoin wagon Smiley

i still can't believe it took them this long to start accepting bitcoin.. they probably lost out on a lot of money for making such a dumb decision when bitpay and coinbase have been around to mitigate any sort of risk for them.
