Cryptopocalypse again

The state of cryptocurrency wasn’t trustworthy for the recent weeks. This crash has proved it: at one time almost every cryptocurrency has decreased in price for 10%.

Probably, the reasons are connected to the massive prohibition of cryptocurrencies in some countries (South Korea, Ukraine, China threats to ban Bitcoin and other cryptos).

Also, Facebook started to delete all the ads and posts connected to cryptocurrency as they stated it was “frequently associated with misleading or deceptive practices.” 

Facebook new policy

According to Business Insider, the company is banning all ads related to games that pay real money bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, and ICOs. 

The statement published on Tuesday “prohibits financial products and services that are frequently associated with misleading or deceptive promotional practices, such as binary options, initial coin offerings, and cryptocurrency.”

Due to the high popularity of cryptocurrencies, a great deal of frauds is creeping around the pages of Facebook.

The company decided that was enough and announced the new policy, followed by a number of posts and adds deleted once and for all.
