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.

Its donations! what risk could there even be?

None. They were just acting like douchebags.

I believed it for a second.  It's too bad it's an april fools joke.  To be honest, IMHO, bitcoin and wikipedia really fit well together.  They're both about using technological advances to reimagine a traditional system.  They both have an element of disruption to the status quo.  With companies in place ready to convert btc to fiat, what's taking wikipedia so long?!

Oh, whoa, thanks for the update, man.  I think that's great.  I know how I'll donate next time that Jimmy Wales pulls on my heartstrings.

I checked a few days ago and they weren't accepting Bitcoin. I thought that was a bit weird considering how so many other organizations and companies have started accepting Bitcoin. I checked back to the same section on their FAQ today and it looks like their policy has changed. They seem to be accepting Bitcoin donations now:

Quote
Why does the Wikimedia Foundation accept Bitcoin?

The Wikimedia Foundation, as a donor-driven organization, has a fiduciary duty to be responsible and prudent with its money, while striving to provide as many methods of donating as possible. Our donors indicated that they were interested in supporting us through Bitcoin, so after some investigation, we set up a method to accept those donations. See our blog post for more information about it.

Link (scroll down or search for "Bitcoin"):

This is good news. Smiley

I meant it as a joke since Wikipedia doesn't accept Bitcoin, a few minutes later seeing that Wikimedie does. This thread was started on April Fools Day, hence my reply.

Again a good necrobump... Someone should make an analysis how correlating for example the speculation threads of 2011-2012 are compared to these days.
