For quite some time now, there has been somewhat of a crusade against cryptocurrency information. Following in the footsteps of Twitter and YouTube, it now seems that Wikipedia is censoring crucial crypto-related information.
Wikipedia is a portal of viable information on a massive range of topics.
Is Wikipedia Censoring Crypto Information?
Some of those topics also pertain to cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology.
People who want to learn more about these industries are often likely to look it up on Wikipedia first.
If Charles Hoskinson is to be believed, Wikipedia is censoring cryptocurrency information at an alarming rate.
In a recent YouTube video, he claims how Wiki editors are effectively removing or modifying crucial information willy-nilly.
It would appear that this primarily affects Cardano, although it is not unlikely that other projects face similar threats.
All changes made on Wikipedia have to be reviewed by an editor.
To ensure the information is incorrect or incomplete, editors and contributors would have to be in cahoots.
It is not an unlikely conspiracy theory, given the bias toward Bitcoin and altcoins on a global scale.
However, Hoskinson doesn’t refer to anyone in particular, thus the claims need to be taken with a grain of salt.
It is certainly possible that something is going on, but without evidence, that situation won’t improve.
