Wikipedia has procured a sizable $140,000 (around £83,000, AU$151,000) in Bitcoin donations, just a week after it started accepting the currency.

The non-profit online encyclopedia started taking the virtual currency for the first time as part of its annual donations drive, which also allows people to contribute via PayPal, credit cards and Amazon payments.

Who cares? Wikipedia is no longer a reliable and neutral source (especially with topics in Politics, Religion and Business). Most of the sections are controlled by organized cabals. And the owner (Jimbo Wales) has gone ultra-greedy.
