Twitter could be the next major Internet company to ban crypto-related ads, according to reports that surfaced Sunday.

According to Sky News, Twitter will revamp its advertising policy so that those for ICOs, token sales, and cryptocurrency wallets will no longer be allowed. The new policy could take effect in as few as two weeks.

As the news went viral, Bitcoin’s price continued to slide. At the beginning of the weekend on Friday, its price was about $8,500. At the time of writing (New York time), it was hovering around $7,500.

If Twitter does ban crypto-related ads, the action would follow that of its much larger social media competitor Facebook (NASDAQ:FB). In January, Facebook announced that it was banning crypto-related ads, including ICOs.

Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL) stated last week that it would no longer allow for advertising for cryptocurrencies and related content. Specifically, Google’s advertising change also applies to ICOs and crypto wallets, but also to cryptocurrency exchanges, and services related to providing crypto trading advice.

Its halt is scheduled to not begin until June and is part of a sweeping crackdown on high-risk and unregulated financial products, we reported last week.
