Mozilla Stops Crypto Donation
Market News

  • Mozilla said it’s pausing accepting crypto donations.
  • Jamie Zawinski said it should be ashamed to partner with planet-incinerating Ponzi grifters.

Mozilla, the nonprofit organization that creates the Firefox web browser, reported that the foundation stops the ability to accept cryptocurrency donations. This is due to the notable backlash they received from the Mozilla co-founder, Jamie Zawinski who stopped his service to mozilla.org in 1999.

Zawinski tweeted scathing criticism to a December 31st Mozilla tweet. The foundation promotes that they accept cryptocurrency donations despite the fact that Mozilla has already started accepting bitcoin donations in 2014. Zawinski said on January 3rd:

Everyone involved in the project should be witheringly ashamed of this decision to partner with planet-incinerating Ponzi grifters.

Furthermore, some community members called for Mozilla to stop its call for donations and to spell out how accepting crypto was in line with its mission to fight the ongoing climate crisis.

To clarify, this isn’t the first time a major firm has faced backlash or distanced itself from Bitcoin because of environmental concerns. In May last year, Tesla stopped accepting bitcoin as payment for its vehicles, just months after introducing the option.

However, Elon stated the firm was “concerned about rapidly expanding use of fossil fuels for Bitcoin mining and transactions, especially coal.” Weeks later, he said the company will most likely accept bitcoin again once the cryptocurrency mining rate reaches 50% renewables.
