After Facebook and Google, Microsoft has now banned advertisements showing cryptocurrencies and related products from its Bing search engine.
"Because cryptocurrency and related products are not regulated, we have found them to present a possible elevated risk to our users with the potential for bad actors to participate in predatory behaviours, or otherwise scam consumers," Melissa Alsoszatai-Petheo, Advertiser policy manager at Microsoft, said in a blog post on Wednesday.

Bing Ads will implement this change globally in June, with enforcement rolling out in late June to early July.
