China Shuns Bitcoin; More Google Censorship?


Hundreds of bitcoin and cryptocurrency-related videos disappeared from YouTube around Christmas. Chris Dunn, an influencer with 210,000 subscribers on the platform, tweeted that YouTube cited “harmful or dangerous content” and the “sale of regulated goods” when it took down his videos.

Although YouTube quickly said the purge was an error and all the videos would be reinstated, it continues a pattern of resistance from Google against cryptocurrencies.

The search engine giant, which owns YouTube, banned cryptocurrency advertising for most of the summer before relenting in September and also suspended Ethereum mobile wallet MetaMask from the Google Play Store.
