Google to allow certain crypto ads from October
Regulated crypto exchanges from the US and Japan will again be able to advertise on Google Ads after the internet search firm updates a policy on such advertising in October.
Google says in a statement that the policy on financial products and services will be updated next month to allow regulated exchanges from the US and Japan to advertise.
It says advertisers will need to be certified with the company for the specific country in which their ads will serve.
“Advertisers will be able to apply for certification once the policy launches in October,” Google says, adding that the financial products and services page will be updated once the policy goes into effect.
It says that the policy will apply globally to all accounts advertising these financial products and that those interested should look up the “About restricted financial products certification” section of the page.
The company first announced a ban on crypto-related advertising in mid-March that went into effect in June.
Its announcement came after a ban by Facebook, which reversed the ban on certain crypto-related ads in late June. Twitter also started banning crypto ads from late March.
