Mozilla Starts Accepting Dogecoin Donations

In an announcement on social media, Mozilla revealed it’s accepting cryptocurrency donations through a partnership with leading crypto payments processor BitPay. Donations received in crypto are converted into dollars to avoid any crypto-related volatility.

The Mozilla Foundation is a non-profit organization behind several internet-related applications, including the popular Firefox web browser. According to a Benzinga report, many users quickly criticized Mozilla’s move, saying that crypto-assets enable “environmental catastrophe,” and that cryptocurrencies are “harmful to the environment.”

Some users threatened to stop using Firefox altogether and move to other web browsers. Notably, Opera and Brave browsers have already integrated crypto-related features, such as built-in wallets. Firefox largely stayed away from crypto, only blocking cryptojacking malware for its users in 2018. Meanwhile, the Dogecoin community has been celebrating the news. 

Per previous reports, search interest for Dogecoin exploded during the cryptocurrency’s massive 10,000% price rally last year, going from an average of 135,000 monthly searches in April 2020 to 16.5 million in April 2021.

Dogecoin was created back in 2013 as a joke. The cryptocurrency’s community is well-known for taking on philanthropic projects, which included helping charitable organizations. It made headlines in 2014 after raising more than $25,000 worth of DOGE to let the Jamaican bobsleigh team attend the Winter Olympics in Sochi.

DOGE Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels

Looking at the Dogecoin price chart, we see that DOGE has been quite bearish during the current week. If the bearish sentiment continues, we could see DOGE slip below $0.16.
