Is Google against Bitcoins?

  • Google seems to dislike Bitcoins, as it is evident from its direct or indirect demand for its censorship.
  • The app was available on the Apple Store, and after complaints from the developers, it reintroduced on the Google PlayStore.
  • Google suspended the popular MetaMask crypto wallet and mobile browser app that was backed by Ethereum incubator ConsenSys from its store.

Google seems to dislike Bitcoins, as it is evident from its direct or indirect demand for its censorship. One such incident that occurred recently was the removal of the Bitcoin rewards game Bitcoin Blast from the Google Play app store. Google mentioned that the game pulled down for deceiving its customers.

During the previous month, the team behind Bitcoin Blast, a popular match-three puzzle game, which gives its players bitcoin-redeemable points, complained that their app removed. It was quite a shock as the app had a rating of 4.5 from over 20,000 ratings and 13,000 reviews. Google removed the app without providing any reason.

The app was available on the Apple Store, and after complaints from the developers, it reintroduced on the Google PlayStore. Bling, the organization behind the Bitcoin Blast, asked the public for help.

A similar incident occurred in 2019 when Google imposed bans on many Bitcoin-related content creators from its platform. These bans also lifted after a massive outcry from the public.

In another incident, Google suspended the popular MetaMask crypto wallet and mobile browser app that was backed by Ethereum incubator ConsenSys from its store. This app reintroduced as well.

After the ban, Bling CEO, Amy Wan is questioning her company’s relationship with Google. She has also warned other crypto organizations about the hostility from Google.

Google banned the app, saying that it was showing “deceptive behavior,” but did not provide a proper explanation. The only solution offered by Google was to resubmit the app for approval.

Previously, a lot of bitcoin-related organizations have threatened to cut ties with Google due to its hostility towards Bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies.

At the same time, Google, along with companies like Facebook, are actively looking for financial services to help in boosting their ad revenues. Last November, Google partnered with the US-based Citigroup to launch its smart “checking accounts” via Google Pay.

Bitcoin prices are rising rapidly, which means scammers are looking for victims to fall in their “get rich by investing in Bitcoins” schemes. Google has always tried to keep its users safe, but sometimes its ban hammer falls on the innocents too, making developers nervous.
