Wow. I'm not a big crypto fan but this seems like a big deal. I understand Google not wanting it not to be delegitimized, but is a bit drastic. So far, these are the current prohibitions on Google for ads:

Counterfeit goods

Dangerous products or services

Enabling dishonest behavior

Inappropriate content (which I realize is vague, ,but in Google's words, this means "shocking content or promote hatred, intolerance, discrimination, or violence."

Not sure which category crypto would fall under.

These adds are annoying anyway. Every time I log in my laptop and suddenly got at least 10 popup adds from bitcoin. I like bitcoin but no need for these adds. I know where to find it if I want.
