YouTube Temporarily Bans Two Popular Cryptocurrency Channels
Claiming a policy breach, YouTube has banned two large Crypto channels: 'Ivan On Tech' and 'The Moon'.
YouTube has delivered a strike notice to both accounts, which, in essence, restricts their abilities to upload videos, create live streams and more. As of the time of writing, both channels are back online.
Other Crypto sites have seen similar bans in recent times, with some pointing to sensationalist headlines as the possible cause in most cases. YouTube has indeed admitted in the past that its auto-detection algorithms sometimes make mistakes.
'Ivan on Tech', a channel with over 215,000 subscribers, tweeted that, while his account had been fully restored after numerous frustrating calls to various YouTube departments, he would now be streaming primarily from his own website as a result of the repeated strikes from the Google-owned site.
