|March 20 2018||Facebook then Google and it sounds like now Twitter|
Following Facebook’s lead, Google announced it would ban all cryptocurrency
advertising on its platforms by June 2018. This includes YouTube and any
websites where Google sells digital ad space. Twitter is expected to ban a range
of cryptocurrency advertising by April 2018, including advertising for initial coin
offerings (ICOs), cryptocurrency wallets and some cryptocurrency exchanges.
There are additional items: the advertisement of Contracts of Difference, rolling
spot forex and financial spread betting. An ongoing problem with speculative
high-risk instruments is it is not always easy to distinguish illegal activity from
mere mediocrity or incompetence. Will LinkedIn, Medium and Reddit be next?
