The founder of the Internet encyclopedia Jimmy Wales has said that Wikipedia will never conduct an ICO or issue its own digital currency.

Wales also called blockckchain “superinteresting technology”. However this is a bubble surrounded by “mania and hype.”

Recently, Wikipedia’s CEO said that an ICO is a “complete scam”. And last year Jimmy Wales asked the bitcoin community to help him to launch a project to counter fake news.
