Fuck around and find out
But for a nonprofit (of sorts), who you accept donations from (and even more, seek donations from) can be pretty damning, and right now people are shilling pretty hard for ponzicurrencies. Even worse, cryptobros have a vested interest in Mozilla's business, so it is extra concerning.
@thomasfuchs Honestly, they should have been accepting these donations the whole time, just not advertising it. Put it somewhere on the site, probably in the fine print, cash it out the moment it comes in, and neither promote [current-generation] cryptocurrency nor try to use its flash popularity (including negative press and feelings) to bolster their (Mozilla's) own visibility.
This post is just Mozilla forcing their open hand just that much further into your face.
@thomasfuchs Unpopular opinion, but I support payment with #cryptocurrency.
But I see why not everyone will support it. I have zero crypto, actually.

@thomasfuchs I'm assuming then that that's not the same Mozilla founder that started Brave and using everyone's browser as a coin miner.
