Earlier this decision was reported by the publication Cheddar, noting that the new policy Snap Inc. came into force in February. At the same time, other types of advertising related to cryptocurrencies (for example, information and educational subjects) were not included in the ban.

In a conversation with CoinDesk representative Snap Inc. confirmed information about the ban on ICO, but did not say anything about the plans to ban advertising related to other uses of cryptocurrency.
