Google lifts ban on crypto ads as new policy goes into effect

Following an update to its financial products and services policy, Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL) will once again allow crypto ads on its platforms.

The multinational company placed a ban on crypto-related ads on all its platforms back in June 2018. However, a new policy that went live on August 3 will now allow crypto exchanges and wallet providers to advertise their products and services on Google as long as they meet certain requirements.

As earlier reported by BTC PEERS, crypto exchanges and wallets that intend to use the service are expected to register with the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN).

Google’s new policy is not a free pass to all kinds of crypto-related ads as the company still has restrictions on using its platform to promote ICOs, IDOs, loans, token liquidity pools, unhosted wallets, dApps, and celebrity-endorsed cryptocurrencies. Google’s updated policy also prohibits linking crypto ads to websites that host crypto-related content.

We encourage you to use comments to engage with other users, share your perspective and ask questions of authors and each other. However, in order to maintain the high level of discourse we’ve all come to value and expect, please keep the following criteria in mind:  

  •            Enrich the conversation, don’t trash it.

  •           Stay focused and on track. Only post material that’s relevant to the topic being discussed. 

  •           Be respectful. Even negative opinions can be framed positively and diplomatically. Avoid profanity, slander or personal attacks directed at an author or another user. Racism, sexism and other forms of discrimination will not be tolerated.

  • Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases. Comments that are written in all caps and contain excessive use of symbols will be removed.
  • NOTE: Spam and/or promotional messages and comments containing links will be removed. Phone numbers, email addresses, links to personal or business websites, Skype/Telegram/WhatsApp etc. addresses (including links to groups) will also be removed; self-promotional material or business-related solicitations or PR (ie, contact me for signals/advice etc.), and/or any other comment that contains personal contact specifcs or advertising will be removed as well. In addition, any of the above-mentioned violations may result in suspension of your account.
  • Doxxing. We do not allow any sharing of private or personal contact or other information about any individual or organization. This will result in immediate suspension of the commentor and his or her account.
  • Don’t monopolize the conversation. We appreciate passion and conviction, but we also strongly believe in giving everyone a chance to air their point of view. Therefore, in addition to civil interaction, we expect commenters to offer their opinions succinctly and thoughtfully, but not so repeatedly that others are annoyed or offended. If we receive complaints about individuals who take over a thread or forum, we reserve the right to ban them from the site, without recourse.
  • Only English comments will be allowed.

Perpetrators of spam or abuse will be deleted from the site and prohibited from future registration at Investing.com’s discretion.
