The owners of several YouTube channels have reported some of their crypto-related videos are being removed from the platform.
At least 11 channels have reportedly complained about the situation, including Altcoin Daily, Сhico Crypto, The Cryptoverse, Crypto Tips, BTC Sessions and Chris Dunn. The latter has tweeted YouTube has blocked most of the videos he has posted over the past years.
.@YouTube just removed most of my crypto videos citing "harmful or dangerous content" and "sale of regulated goods"... it's been 10 years of making videos, 200k+ subs, and 7M+ views. WTF are you guys doing @TeamYouTube?! pic.twitter.com/MPcKbBVrC4— Chris Dunn (@ChrisDunnTV) December 23, 2019
This situation has been received with surprise by the crypto community if we take into account that YouTube's community guidelines do not ban crypto-related videos, at least not directly. However, the regulations do mention that any reference to fake coins are totally forbidden.
YouTube has not yet shared any statement on this controversial decision.
