    Bitcoin › Culture YouTube shuts down Bitcoiner Anthony Pompliano’s channel ahead of ‘PlanB’ intervi

    Abstract:Roughly two hours later, Youtube reinstated Pompliano’s channel, claiming that the content reviewer mistook his Bitcoin giveaway for a phishing attempt.

      Morgan Creek co-founder and partner Anthony Pompliano had his 251,000-subscriber Youtube channel temporarily deleted by the platform after he posted a new interview with PlanB.

      The Bitcoin-bull promptly addressed the issue on Twitter, where he currently has 1,1 million followers.

      Roughly two hours later, Youtube reinstated his channel, making all of his Bitcoin-related videos again available for viewing on the platform.

    What is going on, YouTube?

      “YouTube just deleted our channel after @100trillionUSD and I was talking about a hyper bullish scenario for bitcoin in the next 5 years. Thankfully I have a backup recording and well release it tomorrow on the podcast,” wrote Pompliano on Twitter, after the video-sharing platform flagged his interview with a former institutional investor, known for creating the Bitcoin Stock-to-Flow (S2F) valuation model.

      “We have no strikes and didn‘t violate any community guidelines,” he added, surprised by YouTube’s move to “de-platform” him.

      “I have received two emails from YouTube. The first stated that the content, an interview on bitcoin, was harmful and dangerous (LOL). They then stated that we would receive a strike, but then I received a second email saying the channel was being deleted seconds later,” said Pompliano, adding that the platform claimed his content “encouraged illegal activities.”

    YouTubes feedback

      “Glad you saw your channel is back – wanted to get all the facts before we followed up,” YouTube reached out to Pomliano on Twitter a couple of hours later, after restoring his channel.

      “To clarify, a reviewer mistook your bitcoin giveaway to be an attempt at phishing – weve educated our reviewers to help better identify phishing attempts. Appreciate your patience while we sorted it out,” YouTube followed up, offering an explanation for flagging the content.

      “Throw us on the homepage, drive us another 250k subscriber, and well call it even,” Pompliano replied, while thanking his Twitter followers for their support, who, with their tweets, helped to speed up the resolution.

      “Just remember not everyone has the luxury of a big audience. Censorship sucks,” he concluded.

    Bitcoin Global Legalization: A survey of countries that accept and reject Bitcoin.

    Since the inception of Bitcoin in 2009 by the unknown founder popularly known as Satoshi Nakamoto, the march for its legalization as well as other cryptocurrencies had continued till this point. While some countries had officially legalized Bitcoin and accepts it as a legal tender, others rather reject and ban it. The rest tend to maintain a neutral approach of tolerating it without either banning nor legalizing it. The major reason for this has been that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies lacks regulation and centralization and hence, beyond the control of the government. However, there is a general vision that given the popularity of Bitcoin itself and other cryptocurrencies, more countries will in no distant time give an official approval and legalization of Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies.
