YouTube blocked Bitcoin Cash Argentina channel - an attempt to try to silence the BCH community
This is what happens when we give too much power to centralized streaming video platforms, they abuse and use their 'term of services' as an excuse to harm content creators.
YouTube has long been involved in blocking accounts related to cryptocurrencies, much more those that don't have much focus on talking or spreading the Bitcoin Core (BTC) in an attempt to overshadow the same channels. It was on this path that the video sharing platform Blocked the Bitcoin Cash Argentina channel in a harsh censorship of its services alleging 'violation of their TOS' which does not seem to correspond to the truth at all.
I've never been a fan of YouTube's terms as the platform hasn't exactly lived up to what it says for a long time they have been blocking channels without notice. In the past I remember even seeing one of the tools like Metamask being removed from the PlayStore (YouTube, Google, all flour from the same bag) claiming that it violated their guidelines. Fortunately the APP was restored after a while.
Returning to the blocking of the Bitcoin Cash Argentina account, YouTube claimed in its report to the channel that it did so because the channel was publishing uninformative content and that constituted scam, which is not true because Bitcoin Cash Argentina only used the channel to publish content material that helped Argentine people to understand how to use Bitcoin Cash and what benefits people get from using 'digital cash'. So, either YouTube lied or something very obscure is happening behind it all, it's not all, YouTube almost ban everything that speaks louder about decentralization apps as mentioned in this video.
To appeal, Bitcoin Cash Argentina incurs months of waiting and honestly I don't see the need for that to happen because for sure they will come back no matter how long they regain access to 'block the channel' again. They've already done it and they've done it again. The most ridiculous thing about it all is that the 'blocking' comes after the channel conducts a mini debate between Majamalu, elbitcoin, and a Bitcoin Core (BTC) maximalist in which they addressed, among several things, what are the advantages of using Bitcoin Cash.
They took down the channel, but they can't take down 'an idea' and it's already published onodysee
Quoting 'their terms of service', YouTube manages in the blink of an eye to ban a channel that wasn't even that big for fear that people might realize that the real 'the Bitcoin is in Bitcoin Cash'. It's completely embarrassing and frustrated on the part of the subsidiary company of Google Inc, and I'm sure the censorship had the hand of BTC maxis as it's not a coincidence that the same happens after the live debate hosted by Bitcoin Cash Argentina.
In my opinion, I think the video platform has a lot of power on their hands which makes it a big industry monopolist. They decide and creators have to follow their guidelines many times even without breaking rules they can still ban without warning. It's time to start building a new kind of decentralized video platform with great adherence by creators, LBRY (rebranded Odysee) is still trying but lack something to be a mainstream in the video sharing industry.
We've given them that strength so it's fair to take their power away too, so maybe they see that they can't treat creators as mere sources of income or products and that they can be replaced at any time. This type of censorship will never end because they can unilaterally decide to withdraw user access to their products just like everything that is centralized.
I feel a certain hostility from many platforms [unfortunately even on Reddit we see this kind of behavior in certain subs, where trolls, BTC maxis disguised always attack anything that is promoting BCH] when it comes to spreading Bitcoin Cash to the masses, there are a lot of people 'in fear' by the fact that Bitcoin Cash is the best Bitcoin, Bitcoin 2.0 the currency that still has a lot to evolve and actually work for the longings of the people.
Bitcoin Cash can still open up the horizons of many people in the world and it is a good asset to spread. This tendency of the currency to be gaining acceptance leads many people with 'Marxi Leninist' ideas to try to block its evolution. Today it happens with the Bitcoin Cash Argentina channel, but tomorrow it can happen with another one linked to the community.
It is clear that the currency frightens many and as it has practical use and this constitute nightmare, even more worrying for them, but wanna know?! Bitcoin Cash will not STOP as well as the entities that spread the word in the world will not retreat and no matter how much they try to denigrate Bitcoin Cash's image will just continue to come alive.
