MailChimp strikes hard against accounts of several crypto-based businesses by suspending them out of nowhere. Decrypt and Messari are two businesses that are impacted by this action.
MailChimp Strikes Hard Against Platforms Related to Crypto
The email marketing company just removed cryptocurrency businesses from its list of clients. Since over five years ago, crypto companies have used MailChimp’s services to send and receive emails.
The impacted companies’ CEOs have voiced their discontent with the latest decision. The creator of Messari, Ryan Selkis, wrote on Twitter with a mention to the MailChimp account that the email marketing service had confirmed their concerns. Additionally, he said that they would take on any platforms that censor speech.
well @Mailchimp has suspended the Messari email account for no reason.
web2 delenda est.

The restriction also has an impact on media outlets that cover cryptocurrency transactions and those that provide cryptographic information.
Some of the most prominent businesses in the digital asset market have been impacted by the recent development. Jared Ronis, the head of marketing at Messari, is unhappy with MailChimp’s action because he compares it to the criminal application of laws. The prohibition stunned the cryptocurrency exchanges because it was unexpected.
Those who offer cryptocurrency services and their affiliates have long been the subject of inquiry. However, this can be related to the market correction that caused significant losses in investor capital. Additionally, it can be related to regulators’ efforts to curtail operations in the sector on worries about asset volatility.
The current occurrence is unusual in that none of the parties involved have admitted guilt.
Too Much Banning
Crypto Twitter revealed a number of instances in which its MailChimp accounts had been disabled during the previous two weeks.
As Edge Wallet prepared to launch its weekly newsletter on Monday, it discovered that its MailChimp account had been shut down. This occurred when community manager Jeolly Garcia tried to log into the account for his job.
According to Edge Wallet CEO Paul Puey, the issue has not yet materialized in the Web3 ecosystem. Only the conventional email system contains it.
On August 1, after attempting to inform their community via newsletters about another NFT drop, Ocarina, an NFT artist, tweeted about the suspension of their MailChimp account. In this instance, however, Ocarina received notification from MailChimp that the “Acceptable User Policy” of the email marketer was broken by the information related to its sector.
In order to prevent such tragedies, it appears that the Web3 environment needs to invest more effort into developing a communication tool for the sector.
