Youtube Continues Crypto Clampdown, Ivan on Tech Switches Platforms


Ivan on Tech has once again been censored on Youtube. As a result, the popular crypto vlogger has decided to move over on to his own platform to publish content.

Crypto content creators look for greener pastures

Youtube’s censorship has only intensified since their most recent update to the site’s terms and conditions. Crypto content creators have been the latest group to be demonetized and receive strikes against their channels, as part of the latest purge.

Youtube has consistently implemented stricter guidelines to limit the kinds of content available to the platform’s viewers, while at the same time, they have constantly modified the search algorithm to recommend only approved content in its autoplay feature.

The amount of arbitrary censorship on Youtube has caused a mass exodus of content creators to other platforms like self-hosted websites, competitors like Bitchute, D-Live, and Vimeo, and the self-hosted Fediverse video platform Peertube.

Ivan on Tech is just the latest casualty of Youtube’s censorship happy policies. Ivan has launched his own site to stream and host his own content, inspired by the POSSE (Publish [on your] Own Site, Syndicate Elsewhere), web publication philosophy.

Privacy and Censorship are the two major issues facing the future of the Web

As Silicon Valley’s big tech monopolies continue to limit the freedom of the internet by censoring social media and banning controversial content, we will continue to see content creators seek censorship-free alternatives.

Data harvesting is another major issue facing web users, as large tech companies offer free services at the expense of harvesting and monetizing the user’s private data. Data is a pivotal battle for the privacy of internet users, and in the fight against censorship.

The answer to both of these issues is to stop using centralized social media and big tech web services. The rise of the Fediverse’s self-hosted social media alternatives, like Mastodon, Peertube, and Pleroma, are evidence of this trend towards freedom and decentralization.
Self-hosted crypto projects like Urbit, BTCPay server, and LibrePatron are also on the forefront of online liberty and the battle for privacy.
