- YouTube crypto purge has returned
- Sensationalism is the catalyst this time
- An algorithmic break caused the last purge
Cryptocurrency News Today – reports making rounds over the last few hours reveal that the YouTube crypto purge has returned. Per the report, this time, it seems sensationalism is the primary trigger behind the purge. One crypto YouTuber initially reported the YouTube crypto purge. It was famed tech and crypto YouTuber Ivan on Tech that raised the issue after a number of others.
Recall that despite the heavy clean out the last time, it now appears that there’s at least some explanation on the ongoing YouTube crypto purge. Even though the last YouTube crypto purge was more related to the FATF (Financial Action Task Force) regulatory guidelines and general inspections as opposed to YouTube’s guidelines, this might not be the case this time around.
Sensationalism Behind Current YouTube Crypto Purge
Among the crypto YouTubers that have been hit by the ongoing series of Youtube crypto purge, many have been affected. It has caused strikes and bans which affected the famed Crypto Wendy O, and Chico Crypto, along with a host of other channels. This time around the purge includes live streams. Ivan on Tech stated that the strike on his Twitter channel completely shocked him. Despite what Ivan believes, the title of his stream:
“BITCOIN GOING VERTICAL, Halving IMPORTANT UPDATE.”
It is obviously shouting sensationalism because Bitcoin and cryptos are not in YouTube’s good books. The trigger is the result of a pushover and not a biased ban. Similarly, Ivan was also promoting ByBit on his YouTube channel, which isn’t reputable enough leverage trading platform. Hence, the chances weren’t slim that Ivan would receive the strike that stopped him from initiating live streams on Youtube for a three month period.
An Algorithmic Break Caused the Last Purge
Crypto Wendy O added that their profiles received a strike as they were using a title that was similar to the above-mentioned title and the title shouted out sensationalism on YouTube. Here is how the title reads:
“BITCOIN MASSIVE DROP INCOMING – TAKE PROFIT.”
The crypto community overall is not used to such types of tactics to make profits off any affiliate programs as they would hurt the community. Meanwhile Director Wave Tech Tom Lombardi was critical of Ivan by using words like:
“@teamyoutube please keep blocking @ivanontech.
Recall that the last YouTube crypto purge was caused by an algorithmic break. At the time the Youtube representatives called the glitch an algorithmic break, but this time the case is different. It will appear the ongoing Youtube crypto purge on the affected channels is actually a direct result of what content creators did.
