A few days ago we wrote about the new possibility to support the Wikimedia Foundation with donations in Bitcoin. To receive donations in Bitcoin, Wikipedia works togehter with CoinBase, the well known payment processor. This day CoinBase refers that the Wikimedia Foundation receives more than $140,000 in Bitcoin donations in the first week – a great success!

As a non-profit organization Wikipedia runs ad-free and finance themselves with donations they earned from their users and the Wikipedia community. Since 2001 they make it easy for everyone to get the information he/she needs – and they are proud about their charitable donors. Including Bitcoin for donations was the right step to reach more donors all over the world. Donation in Bitcoin is easy for everyone and the donors also enjoy tax benefits by using Bitcoin.
