Vitalik Buterin’s video was removed by YouTube due to censorship.
From the largest YouTube video hosting, the administration of the resource removed Buterin’s video “Questions and Answers on the Ethereum Roadmap”, recorded at the 2016 conference. As the reason for the removal, the algorithm indicated “goods whose turnover is regulated by special laws.”
I know that poem says that speaking up when they come for me is already too late, but still, censoring an ethereum roadmap Q&A is just…. weird
Looks like we need alternatives to youtube. https://t.co/dvnExnhaw5

Vitalik was surprised to receive this news and mentioned that it was time to look for an alternative to the popular service:

More than a week ago, about a dozen foreign YouTube channels focused on cryptocurrency topics complained that many of their videos were deleted.
