Facebook to Allow Some Cryptocurrency Ads From Approved Vendors


Facebook is loosening its ban on advertisements that promote cryptocurrencies saying such content will be allowed on the social network after going through an application process to determine the safety and legitimacy of the products.

The company first said it was blocking such ads in January, noting that they were often associated with misleading and deceptive practices. Facebook will continue to prohibit ads for other risky financial products including binary options and initial coin offerings, according to a blog post on Tuesday.

Facebook's application for approval to run cryptocurrency ads will look at aspects of the businesses that can ensure users aren't getting scammed, including "any licenses they have obtained, whether they are traded on a public stock exchange, and other relevant public background on their business," the company said in the post.

"Given these restrictions, not everyone who wants to advertise will be able to do so," Facebook said. "But we'll listen to feedback, look at how well this policy works and continue to study this technology so that, if necessary, we can revise it over time."

The revised policy comes a few weeks after Facebook started its own blockchain division, to explore ways for the technology to be used in its products.
