Update (2/23): After clarifying several details with Stripe, we are happy to announce that we will be able to continue our charitable donation program after all!

Manifold Markets is sad to announce that it will be ending its Charitable donation program and halting all future mana redemptions starting March 1st, 2023. If you have any mana that you were planning to donate, we kindly request that you do so as soon as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Why is this happening?

Our payment processor, Stripe, says that they are “not able to support [our] business in its current state as it violates the Crowdfunding and Gambling umbrellas in [their] terms of service. Stripe has requested that we “make the Mana payment flow a closed-loop system by removing the charitable donation piece.


What happens next?

It is possible but unlikely that Stripe will reverse their decision.

It is also possible that we would be able to reintroduce a more limited version of the charity program that does not involve direct mana redemptions. It will probably take a few weeks at minimum to determine the viability of any alternate program.


What should I do?
