YouTube pulls the plug on another crypto live stream.
Crypto YouTuber Sunny Decree recently saw his live stream cut short by YouTube. The platform stated the video had violated its 'harmful and dangerous policy.' Sunny Decree issued a tweet on September 5. The video-sharing platform halted his most recent live stream on his English language channel.
The creator is based in Switzerland. He also records in German. Youtube warned him a second offense would result in a one-week suspension of service. He would be suspended from live streaming, uploading, and posting.
Decree's channel has been targeted by YouTube before. YouTube began aggressively deleting videos with crypto-related content in December 2019. High-profile channels have had videos removed without explanation. Decree's channel has more than 123,000 subscribers. YouTube later called the move as an "error." It restored many of the videos.
But, the platform has continued to target many crypto-related channels. This is seemingly in response to the fake 'crypto giveaway' scam videos. These videos are periodically posted.
The platform shut down the official channel of the cryptocurrency and digital currency news-focused website Bitcoin.com in June. This was for a violation of YouTube's Terms of Service. The channel and all 40,000 subscribers were restored two days later after an appeal.
Other platforms, such as Cointelegraph, have also had similar experiences. They also faced YouTube's strange attitude towards cryptocurrency. In May, the platform suddenly pulled the plug on Cointelegraph's Bitcoin Halving live stream. They cut the July 15 live stream coverage on the infamous Twitter hack short.
In April 2020, Ripple has sued YouTube for proliferating XRP Giveaway scams on its platform.
