Users aiming to purchase Google Ads of any sort will no longer be allowed buys for cryptocurrency or related content.
Google is looking to improve the overall ad experience for internet users, giving various examples of how it punished deceptive content online a year ago, and what it plans to do to improve the ad experience. In a blog post, Product Management Director Rob Leathern said, "There are many companies who are advertising binary options, ICOs and cryptocurrencies that are not now operating in good faith". Google did not indicate how much money it would be losing because of the ban, but those ad networks such as MediaNet that continue to run crypto ads will probably be big beneficiaries, unless of course they also follow suit, either voluntarily or through compliance with future regulatory requirements.

It is estimated to bring in more than $40bn in ad revenues over the course of 2018, nearly half the entire global $94bn market, beating Facebook, which earns $22bn, into second place. Google also introduced technology that enables it to remove Google ads from individual pages on a website that violate its policies.
