onecoin-logoEarlier today OneCoin’s CEO appeared in a YouTube video to promote the scheme’s new €118,000 EUR investment packages.

Less than 24 hours after it was published, YouTube has removed the OneCoin video for violating their policy on ‘spam, deceptive practices and scams‘.

ruja-ignatova-onecoin-onelifeWithout ruling out the violation of more than one, which of the three YouTube policies OneCoin’s video violated is unclear.

The video in question depicted Ruja Ignatova in a low-cut blouse talking to the camera, so it is unlikely the presentation of the video is responsible.

Rather it appears the content of the video, that is Ruja Ignatova enticing investors to invest €118,000 EUR into OneCoin, constitutes ‘spam, deceptive practices and/or (a) scam‘.

At least according to YouTube.

The video was uploaded to OneCoin’s OneLife YouTube channel, which has since been terminated ‘due to multiple or severe violations of YouTube’s policy against spam, gaming, misleading content, or other Terms of Service violations’.


As I understand it when you have a channel terminated on YouTube, you are no longer allowed to own any channels. Whether this puts OneCoin’s main YouTube channel at risk remains to be seen.


Update 23rd August 2016 – Not exactly sure when, but over the last few days the OneCoin YouTube channel has been reinstated. How many strikes the channel has is unclear.
