Muffett is a former Facebook security engineer created this experimental Wikipedia service on the dark net . It is accessible through the Tor Browser, which hides everything , government can’t keep track of you , when you use Tor .
It uses its own onion service to safely encrypt all the traffic while user surfs Wikipedia website .

Muffet also launched onion service for Facebook in 2014 and released the open source Enterprise Onion Toolkit (EOTK ).
While visiting Wikipedia onion site , users may see warning as it uses self-signed certificates . In that case , users will have to manually white list the address. It is read only service because its unofficial Wikipedia yet .
1/ Update on #qgssno7jk2xcr2sj, the unofficial @Wikipedia onion: I've shifted it sideways to a different server where it can stay for a longer period. There were some challenges getting it running (Debian Backports, <grmbl>) but seems stable now.

Onion Wikipedia is unofficial because it is not affiliated with the Wikimedia foundation .It is possible that , Muffet will only keep the Wikipedia onion service online for few days as a proof of concept and foundation for Wikipedia .
I hope It continues its service .
