- YouTube confirms that they are not banning crypto-related content after a wave of deletions this past week
YouTube has affirmed that crypto content is not being banned, and said that the mass deletions of crypto-related videos was a mistake, bringing a sigh of relief to the crypto space.
This past week crypto-related videos from the popular publishers Chris Dunn, Crypto Tips, The Cryptoverse, and Node Investor were removed without warning, and the creators of the content received a one week ban and a warning that they would be banned permanently if they continued to produce crypto videos. The videos were classified as ‘harmful or dangerous content’ and ‘sale of regulated goods’.
Now YouTube moderators have posted on Twitter that most of the videos have been re-instated, and that affected content creators have had their ban and warning removed.
It remains unclear as to why the crypto content was deleted in the first place, and YouTube has offered no explanation beyond saying it was a mistake. In any case, this incident has sparked a discussion among crypto video creators about moving their content to blockchain-based and decentralized video sharing platforms.
