YouTube removes crypto content

Recommended Posts

Hello
I just read a shocking news where YouTube deleted various cryptocurrency related content, I initially did not believe before checking and see if the crypto related videos are gone.
https://cointelegraph.com/news/cryptocurrency-influencers-speak-out-on-youtube-deleting-crypto-related-content

The main reason why YouTube removes various crypto related content is unclear, which makes a lot of questions. but I have an opinion if YouTube might have a plan to make their coins so try to delete the content to reduce the attraction related to the coins discussed in the deleted video content.
I hope YouTube doesn't do that in competing,
what is your opinion about this news?
Do you agree with my opinion that YouTube might issue its own coins along with Google.

Hey i recently got a notification of this same issue as recommended for you but i was busy and i just cleared that notification. YouTube removing crypto content is a bad sign for crypto community.

Imo i don't think YouTube did that in fear of competition or making way for their own coin their must be some other reson behind this we have to wait and see if they officially release any statement regarding this...

Hmmm...curios. The reason behind this removal very well could be the near release of a youtubecoin. I mean youtube doesn't have any reason not to create their own form of currency. It would be a smart way of creating a method to issue payment to youtubers and it would more than likely gain traction simply due to the sheer traffic youtube gets. Shit that would actually probably be a great idea. Youtubes could stir the pot for the crypto would. I mean the onlyhting that really determines the value of any said crypto is the amount of use it gains from the public right? The more people who are after a cryptocurrency the more its value rises? Hmmm...maybe that's not exactly what determines the value of a crypt. I know i've read about this before i just can't recall it. 

It could also have been removed due to the invalidity of what the content was showing. Doesn't youtube try to keep the misinformation to a minimum?

This is probably some banking corporation which has loads of money, and managed to get them to simply delete the content. Censorship of crypto is merely those in power being afraid of change. We have seen the banking sector as a whole (and generally speaking) try shut the bitcoin network down. Entire countries are banning or severely limiting the use and tradability of crypto.

Ironically, I think these are all signs that cryptos are here to take over and stay. If banks and governments did not see it as a threat, they would not be so adamant on removing it. Same goes with media companies like YouTube.

This is really not a good news for us especially who earned some money to make videos on youtube about Crypto even it’s a gambling videos or maybe analysis about movement of BTC and another altscoin prices.

But today I do have an access to youtube and check the Crypto Content. Some of them wasn’t deleted yet. Even some of videos that I might know already deleted it by youtube. I am really disappointed hoping that this kind situation didn’t makes Crypto name will be broke down and make the prices go more  lower than now. If Youtube wanted to make some Coin why do they had to delete are the Crypto content? That’s not related at all

how can you say this is old news, you can search for news on google with the keyword "youtube remove content crypto" then you will see a variety of news that is still quite new about 2-3 days ago. so if you haven't seen it it's not right to say it's old news.

I am not trying to play a smart card or whatever, this is the truth. This is old news. Once someone post it, most of the other online websites just copy them.

It is not old news because a recent removal of several crypto niche users content was the reason of this news.

Blocking YouTube channels and videos on YouTube is sad news and a big mistake on the YouTube service. Fortunately, they have already acknowledged the error and are restoring the video and YouTube channels. And about your own YouTube cryptocurrency, this is a great idea, because with the help of this cryptocurrency you can send a donate, pay for youtube music and other youtube paid services.

if it's true, of course, youtube is under google and the coins will be very helpful for crypto owners who don't want to use other payment tools. hopefully it will really exist

Now the crypto community is talking about decentralization and independence. This is an extra reminder that at any moment any freedom can be censored.

 

Already someone just did not have time to comment on this case.

 

The head of the Binance exchange, Changpeng Zhao, said: “Perhaps the time has come when the crypto community should begin work on creating its own socially-oriented platform based on the blockchain. Of course, many problems have to be solved: spam, fraud, copyright infringement, confidentiality and others ... But it's worth it, ”Zhao said.

In fact, such discussions have been ongoing for quite some time. And although YouTube said that it would reconsider the decision and most of the videos were deleted by mistake, it’s pretty terrible for me to know that tomorrow videos on a topic can simply be deleted.

if true, someone will create a site like youtube but only focus on crypto and use the blockchain network is very good and worth the wait, but of course the development to make it equivalent to youtube will be quite long because it requires a very large cost

It seems like some of the crypto channel I watch still have most of their videos up. I guess only certain videos were removed, unless those videos that I watch are next on the list.

there is a possibility that the video you watched is not considered dangerous so it is not deleted, it could be that the video is a video that contains gambling or something like that. but there is a possibility that the video you watched has been restored by YouTube because YouTube has been trying to restore the video sharing that contains crypto.

Yes, that could (and probably is the reason why the video I watched was not removed). But anyhow, I hope the majority of these videos have not been removed.

of course because crypto traders also need news and videos that discuss crypto. I myself prefer reading news from watching videos, but knowing this news I am quite annoyed.

Are you sure they're removing crypto content? Bc i still see quite a bit of content online that pertains to cryptocurrency, and quite blatantly at that. I will say that they've banned online casino videos, as they categorize it as content that can cause harm. I've had most of my videos deactivated by them, still trying to find a way around it, which Im sure there is.

I'd be very surprised though if they actually removed all cryptocurrency-related content. Don't think that would be a smart move at all for them given how much money they probably make from monetization on those videos which get millions and millions of hits.

They had removed before thus due to an algorithm error that was targeting everyone including the good Youtubers.

Those without anything that contradicts Youtube Terms Of Use are still active and without any issues whatsoever.

The others were removed permantly (deleted for ever and they can not appeal).

Scammers, Pronzi schemes, Advertisers mentioning not good sites are the ones from the cryptocurrency scene that are gone.

All negative information is reflected in the price of cryptocurrencies. In my opinion youtube will lose a lot of users if it starts blocking channels again in the future. 15% of youtube content is cryptocurrencies. I also had a channel that was closed for no reason. Unfortunately I couldn't restore my channel

Just read this topic and i was shock at first and yeah it was kinda bad for people who are into cryto coins, just like me , so many things i could find useful on youtube , many people are making videos for helping though it could alsi benefit them. But the reason is unclear for why youtube deleted it but for my own opinion, i guess there has to be a heavier reason behind the deletion, but just my opinion i guess its not because they are planning to have their own coin or something. Even though i guess its the reason why so lets just wait and see.

now all the videos about crypto still exist, and I can still find videos that discuss the development of crypto prices and also the latest news. this is an old topic, so you need to see the news date so that you are not mistaken.
thanks.

That's right. I also read this news and I saw many deleted content in addition to preventing many big Youtuber from creating new videos in their channels.

now this problem is finished, I can already see the crypto content is back on youtube, in my opinion youtube just wants to make the price of crypto coins go down and it doesn't seem to happen after this news is made.
