In April 2023, Google will update the Financial products and services policy to clarify the scope and requirements for the advertisement of cryptocurrency related business and services.
Beginning 28 April 2023, advertisers offering hardware wallets targeting Bahrain, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Israel, Japan, South Korea, Thailand, Philippines, United Arab Emirates and the United States may advertise those products and services when they meet the following requirements and are certified by Google.
Hardware wallets are designed to hold the private keys of cryptocurrencies, NFTS or other crypto-based assets but don't offer additional services such as purchasing, selling, exchanging or trading assets.
As a reminder, we expect all advertisers to comply with the local laws for any area that their ads target. This policy will apply globally to all accounts that advertise these financial products. For more details, see About restricted financial products certification.
Violations of this policy won't lead to immediate account suspension without prior warning. A warning will be issued, at least seven days, before any suspension of your account.
