Wikipedia Foundation no Longer Accepts Crypto,
The Wikipedia Foundation will no longer accept Bitcoin as a donation. The decision is linked to environmental concerns and to the high volatility of the coin. The WMF started accepting cryptocurrency in 2014 in response to community requests.
Before the decision, they accepted Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, Dogecoin, and Stablecoins. The foundation reported US$130,000 worth of crypto donations in the last financial year or 0.08% of total donations.

Berkshire Hathaway took a big hit from its investments, reporting a loss of $1.58 billion amid a broader market decline. To be sure, Buffett always advises shareholders to ignore these quarterly investment fluctuations.
