Twitter is reportedly preparing to prohibit advertisements for ICOs, token sales, and cryptocurrency wallets. The new advertising policy is expected to come into effect in a couple weeks. The microblogging site is said to impose a ban on ads for crypto exchanges, as well, bar a few exceptions. The policy change is yet to be confirmed officially.
More recently, Google announced its plans to restrict ads of cryptocurrencies and content related to initial coin offerings, exchanges, wallets, and crypto trading advice. The company intends to implement the new rules by June, 2018. Googles move has already provoked reactions from the crypto community. According to Russian media reports, the first lawsuit against the ban has been filed in a Moscow district court.
