Decree had the same experience in December 2019 as well. At that time YouTube started to aggressively delete videos, which had crypto-related content. YouTube deleted the videos of many channels including Decrees channel, which has over 123,000 subscribers. After a while, YouTube announced that it was just a simple error and later on restored many of the videos.
