Microsoft, Twitter and Snap still allow cryptocurrency ads

Twitter today confirmed that it too will be banning private ads for cryptocurrency sales and initial coin offerings. It joins Google, the world’s biggest online ad company, which announced earlier in March it would no longer show ads related to cryptocurrencies like bitcoin. That move followed Facebook’s January ban on cryptocurrency and ICO ads, joining Chinese web giants Alibaba, Baidu and Tencent, which haven’t allowed these kinds of ads for much longer.

Twitter will only allow cryptocurrency ads for exchanges and wallets provided by public companies listed on major stock exchanges — like Square. Note that crypto fan Jack Dorsey is CEO of both Twitter and Square.
