Google Play store has taken down several cryptocurrencies and blockchain news apps. In particular, the Cointelegraph and CoinDesk apps have disappeared.
As of 2:00 PM EST, apps of crypto news sites including Cointelegraph and CoinDesk were unavailable on the Play Store.
According to Cointelegraph, Google did not contact the company regarding the planned removal. The website has operated as usual, so the reasons for the blocking are unclear.
This is not the first time that the Play Store has set its sights on crypto. Near the end of December, the store took down an app for MetaMask.
