Google LLC said it removed more than 3.2 billion ads from the web in 2017 of which 79 million ads were scrubbed for luring online clickers to websites with malware. It did, however, state that the ban also applies to cryptocurrency related content 'including but not limited to initial coin offerings, cryptocurrency exchanges, cryptocurrency wallets, and cryptocurrency trading advice'.
Facebook said it wants people to continue to discover and learn, but there are companies advertising binary options and cryptocurrencies that do not operate in good faith. Both Facebook and Twitter have now taken steps to clamp down on cryptocurrency scams prevailing on their social networks. "And, we removed 66 million "trick-to-click" ads as well as 48 million ads that were attempting to get users to install unwanted software".
It will also affect those placed on third-party sites via its ad platforms. More than 3.2 billion ads were removed a year ago, an average rate of 100 per second.

Bitcoin, an unregulated cryptocurrency built upon the decentralized ledger called blockchain, has earned the ire of governments and regulatory bodies globally for a number of reasons, including volatility and lack of oversight.
