The Youtube Crypto Channel Altcoin Daily run by the brothers Austin and Aaron Arnold got a ban from the video streaming platform after more than two days offline as we are reading more in the upcoming crypto news.
Another YouTube Crypto channel seems to have fallen thanks to the platform’s community policies. According to a tweet from the crypto community members, the brothers and their channel with more than 200,000 subscribers were terminated by YouTube for “encouraging illegal activities.” The brothers tweeted:
“We are a news/opinion channel. We have never promoted anything illegal. Appeal has been submitted.”
The brothers reached out to their twitter followers urging them to contact YouTube and request reinstatement by using the hashtags #FreeAltcoinDaily. After more than two days being offline and inaccessible to subscribers, Altcoin Daily reported that the video streaming platform reversed the ban. YouTube deleted videos with content related to the cryptocurrency in 2019 as channels with thousands of subscribers including Chris Dunn’s videos got removed while other channels were completely taken down. YouTube referred to one of these bans as an “error” during the review process.
The platform was shut down in June and the official channel of the crypto-news platform Bitcoin.com for a “violation of YouTube’s Terms of Service.”The platform appealed and the channel with all its 40,000 subscribers was restored two days later. Other crypto content creators had their channels reinstated in a day including Tone Vays and BTC sessions which is a blockchain-based YouTube channel.
Cointelegraph was also one platform that had similar experiences with Youtube. The video streaming platform pulled the plug on the Bitcoin Halving Livestream that Cointelegraph followed live and also shut down the coverage of the Recent Twitter hack. Also as previously reported, YouTube confused the crypto users as it now started showing scam ads that ask users to send Bitcoin, despite the many bans previously imposed.
How it feels coming back from YouTube jail.#Heavyweights

The scams feature Changpeng Zhao, Steve Wozniak, Joe Rogan, and Vitalik Buterin, trying to make people send bitcoin to different addresses. YouTube confuses the crypto users as many of them reported seeing fake BTC giveaways and ad pop-ups while watching content on the streaming platform. However, Youtube claimed that they cannot be responsible for what other users put up on their channels and requested all lawsuits to be dismissed.
