I'm a little skeptical about the charitable nature of Bitpay's offer to
"hold" funds for the WMF. It doesn't help that they refer to "Wikipedia's
bank accounts", but in the absence of other evidence I suspect that Bitpay
is taking advantage of the volatility of Bitcoin exchange rates to profit
from the delay between receiving Bitcoin transactions and forwarding dollar
donations. That assumes that they are, in fact, forwarding donations at
all.
