Google to end cryptocurrency ad ban

Starting in October, Google will allow regulated cryptocurrency exchanges to advertise in the United States and Japan. Cryptocurrency exchanges will need to be certified by Google to begin advertising. In March, Google banned all cryptocurrency-related advertisements on its platform to protect consumers from ICOs, wallets, and cryptocurrency trading advice, which are still not allowed.
