The Bitcoin Wiki is maintained by the Bitcoin community. The wiki was originally created utilising the DokuWiki software, and originally licensed its content under the WTFPL. It subsequently moved to the ubiquitous MediaWiki software, and changed its license to the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 (CC-BY 3.0) license. As well as insisting all users register with a valid and confirmed e-mail address, it has also instigated pay-to-edit as a spam prevention method. It uses the MediaWiki CryptoPayment extension, and the current fee (as of February 2018) is 0.001 BTC, which is presently less than 1 USD. In spite of this, tens, sometimes hundreds of user accounts are added per day (as of 2013-10-28).[1]

From its 'about' page:

This wiki is a public resource for the community of Bitcoin users, developers, and businesses as well as anyone interested in Bitcoin.

Unlike Wikipedia, the Bitcoin Wiki is not an encyclopedia, and includes things like non-encyclopedia details (e.g., exact specifications on service fees, product performance, etc), how-to manuals, protocol specifications, original research, etc. There are also no notability requirements beyond the requirement that the material be of general interest to some segment of the Bitcoin community or the Bitcoin-curious general public.

Because this resource is open to editing by the general public, readers should be aware that the material presented here often does not reflect the views of the entire Bitcoin community and may be outdated, incorrect, or outright malicious at times.
