The Wikimedia Foundation, which owns Wikipedia, has issued a statement stating that it will stop accepting donations in cryptocurrencies.

Wikipedia will no longer accept donations in cryptocurrencies

The Wikimedia Foundation has been accepting donations in cryptocurrencies since 2014, including Bittroin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Ripple (XRP), Litecoin, Dogecoin, DAI, and USDC. However, such donations represented a small portion of the non-profit’s income—only $130,000 worth of cryptocurrency donations were received in the most recent fiscal year, accounting for 0.08% of total income.

The Wikimedia Foundation has decided to stop directly accepting cryptocurrencies as a means of donation. We started direct cryptocurrency adoption in 2014 based on requests from our volunteers and donor communities. We’re making this decision based on recent feedback from those same communities. In particular, we will close our Bitpay account, which will make it impossible for us to directly accept cryptocurrency as a donation method.

We will continue to monitor this issue and would appreciate feedback and attention to this evolving issue from the people of the Wikimedia movement. We will remain flexible and responsive to the needs of volunteers and donors.

The decision was made during a recent vote, where 29% of the participants voted for the cryptocurrency.

Whatsapp allows you to quietly leave a group

The WhatsApp team is working on a new feature that will allow users to “silently” leave group chats.

Whatsapp allows you to

Currently, when someone leaves a group chat, WhatsApp announces it to all members of the group. Now it is impossible to quietly leave the group so that all members do not know about it. But soon this may change.

The thematic resource WABetainfo drew attention to the innovation in the beta version – when a user leaves a group, only group administrators receive a notification. When a group member opts out, a dialog box appears that says “Only you and the group admins will be notified that you have left the group.”

And here the leader was the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. It could be said that this is unexpected, since in the US Samsung is still about half behind Apple in sales, but in fact a year earlier, the Samsung device was also in the lead in a similar list, and two years ago the company’s smartphones occupied all the first three places.

Be that as it may, the flagship of 2020 became the leader, which at the time of release was scolded for various shortcomings and features. Unexpectedly, LG Aristo 3, unknown outside the US, took second place. Moreover, this is a budget smartphone in 2019 on the SoC Snapdragon 425! How he even got on the leaderboard is completely unclear. Closes the top three iPhone 11 Pro Max.

Also on the leaderboard are HTC U12+, Pixel 4 and iPhone XR. In general, the list turned out to be as diverse as possible.

If we talk about brands, here Samsung and Apple share the first line of the rating with 80 points each. The top five also includes Google, Motorola and LG.

The photo allows you to compare the dimensions of all

A photo of covers allegedly intended for Apple’s new generation smartphones has appeared on the Web. The authenticity of the image cannot be verified, but in general everything looks plausible.

The two larger cases are for iPhone 14 Max and 14 Pro Max. The other two are made for the iPhone 14 and 14 Pro.

The difference in camera cutouts indicates that the lower models are likely to retain the two-sensor configuration, while the older ones will get three. At the same time, if we compare these cases with cases for current models, it becomes clear that the dimensions of the camera blocks will grow again, which allows us to hope for even better photos and videos. Recall that numerous rumors suggest that the older smartphones of the new generation will receive new 48-megapixel image sensors for the main cameras.
