Bitcoin Blast Celebrates Restoration By Google Play Store After A Week’s Absence

News / 02.02.2020

About a week ago, Bitcoin Blast was taken down by google from the google app store. The app involves a gaming service that rewards players with Bitcoin. However, the well-known puzzle game has finally been restored.

Google scrapped the app from its store following accusations made on social media that they made deceptive offers. Nonetheless, Bling’s CEO, Amy Wan, said Google was not clear on what grounds Google decided to remove the app.

Wan is in strong support of the team behind the development of the game. He spoke about how much effort they put into making the game and how quickly google removed it because of the way it had modified its description, which he says was purely a marketing strategy.

The CEO mentioned some of the marketing wordings that Bitcoin Blast used before google took it down. Wan explained it was just to shed light on the general feel and full experience present in the game.

Google claimed the words were deceptive. When Bling inquired how the statements were misleading while pleading a resubmission case, Amy Wan says there was utterly no response from Google.

Despite the game’s success in getting reinstated, Wan said the back and forth crippled the game’s ranking on Google Play Store as many took its removal as a sign of bad service. Hence, the game’s queried legitimacy and legality have made it challenging to be a highlight on the app store.

Wan has shed light on Bling’s commitment to supporting its marketing strategy to boost players worldwide.

He also stated that the situation reminded him of how fragile the relationship between the crypto industry and internet institutions such as google is. He added that many technology-based companies are actively against cryptocurrency, even though google’s place in the internet world has made it stand out.  

Google, which also owns YouTube, is the highest-ranking advertisement platform worldwide. The company claims ownership of the largest marketplace among other apps. Hence, cryptocurrency is dependent on google for its survival. If the anti-crypto movement continues, there is a possibility that cryptocurrency will fail to achieve success.

In late 2019,  cryptocurrency-related videos were being taken down on Youtube, which resulted in an uproar in the cryptocurrency industry. The action saw numerous statements on social media advocating for the videos to be brought back. Content creators called on the firm to restore their videos because it is their primary income source. The company was obliged to answer the call at the expense of not exercising their dissatisfaction.
