The news of the ban on Altcoin Daily Youtube channel has shocked the crypto community. The biased attitude of tech giants, including Google and Facebook, towards crypto companies has once again come to the fore. Altcoin Daily channel run by brothers Aaron and Austin is the latest victim.

URGENT! YouTube has just terminated our channel claiming that we were "encouraging illegal activities"!

We are a news/opinion channel! We have never promoted anything illegal!

Appeal has been submitted. @TeamYouTube Please review this!

The social media giant has banned the crypto news outlet saying it encourages illegal activities on the platform. The channel has considerable fan following and subscribers who watch the channel for the latest crypto industry-related developments. It is a well-known outlet for crypto analysis.

The channel owners have filed an appeal with YouTube asking it to reconsider its ban on Altcoin Daily. Also, Aaron and Austin have asked their audience to support them in their endeavor to persuade YouTube to revoke the ban.

Ban on Altcoin Daily comes as a rude shock to the crypto community

The YouTube channel of Aaron and Austin is well known in the crypto spheres. The two brothers share insightful views, opinions, and news about the crypto and blockchain realm. So, when news about the ban on Altcoin Daily surfaced, the crypto community rallied behind the brothers.

This is ridiculous. I've been following Altcoin daily for more than a year and they been consistently diligent on the work they do. They never sold, solicited or any illegal on this channel. This is very absurd and ridiculous.
