As Wallebi reported previously, YouTube platform doesn’t have a clear position about cryptocurrency. Although many channels are active in this field and regularly upload news video, once in a while YouTube bans crypto channels. Each time that a channel banned, YouTube didn’t reply clearly about the reason. In the latest news, a new crypto channel banned on YouTube due to encouraging illegal activities.
Once in a while, YouTube bans a channel due to breaking community policies. All the banned channels so far, backed to the platform again. In fact, YouTube doesn’t show a stable behavior about crypto channels. Sometimes ban and after a while give permission to them to be active.
A new crypto channel banned on YouTube due to encouraging illegal activities
Altcoin Daily is a crypto channel on YouTube, which runs by two brothers, Aaron and Austin Arnold. Recently, their channel banned by YouTube due to encouraging illegal activities in the field of cryptocurrency.
These two brothers tweeted on July 31 and explained that YouTube terminated their channel. Their channel has 214,000 subscribers and is one of the popular channels among crypto lovers.
The two brothers added that their channel is a news and opinion channel, and they never promoted any illegal activities.
The brothers asked their 27,700 followers on twitter to contact YouTube and ask for the channel reinstatement by using #FreeAltcoinDaily.
After almost two days, few subscribers reported that YouTube had reversed the ban, and they can have access to the contents.
It was not the first time
It was not the first time that YouTube terminates the accounts without further notice. Previously also aggressively deleted videos related to cryptos. Even the famous channels like Chris Dunn with thousands of subscribes banned before. Another example could be Robert Beadles channel, which totally removed from YouTube. However, YouTube referred those bans as an “error” during the review process.
