Google Corp. has announced an update of the advertising rules for financial products and services. As a result, advertising of crypto exchange services in the US and Japan will be allowed. This is reported on the company's website.

However, only certified crypto-currency companies will receive this option.

Advertisers will need to be certified with Google for the specific country in which their ads will serve. Advertisers will be able to apply for certification once the policy launches in October.

Before this, a similar ban was introduced by the social network Facebook. However, half a year later the company allowed limited crypto advertising for the previously approved advertisers. For example, Coinbase was included in the list of approved advertisers.
