Despite having denied it, it seems that YouTube’s cryptocurrency policy continues. The last time was a stirring event last year, by simultaneously removing dozens of videos from creators related to cryptocurrencies. Now he would have removed two more videos, produced by important crypto influencers, from his platform.
YouTube’s policy towards cryptocurrencies
The policy followed by YouTube on cryptocurrencies is not entirely clear. We propose this because there seems to be no total and permanent hostility on the part of the Google company. However, certain worrying episodes have occurred in the past. Which lead the crypto community to consider the video platform an enemy of crypto assets.
And, at the end of the year 2019, several crypto influencers suffered attacks from the platform at the same time. Which not only deleted several videos from different creators, it also reached the point of suspending the YouTube accounts of many of them. Because the same “dangerous or harmful content” was uploaded or there was talk of the sale of “regulated goods”.
Thus, important names for the crypto world such as Chris Dunn, Crypto Beadles and Altcoin Daily. These were affected by what appeared to be a censorship policy by YouTube. He was quickly denied by the company, which promised to solve the problems caused by what they described as an “error.”
The measures of today
This, of course, did not eliminate community suspicions about the existence of an anti-cryptocurrency policy on the platform. Now, they seem to be confirmed. Users of the so-called “crypto Twitter” report that YouTube is eliminating crypto-related videos once again.
An example is the case of the affected user during the first measures taken by YouTube at the end of last year, The Moon. He recently reported that the attack against its content continues. Apparently a new video of the creator has been removed, who was threatened with sanctions after removal.
On the other hand, another crypto influencer, known as Ivan on Tech, also denounced the removal of one of his videos yesterday. In his case YouTube was not limited to a threat, immediately applying a strike to his account on the platform.
In this way, comments are raised again around the alleged censorship that YouTube applied to its creators related to the crypto world. They consider the need to find other platforms on which to upload their content, if they want to escape the risk of staying on YouTube. Making this our Data of the Day today here in CriptoTendencia.
