Banned from server access at my properties as well.

I've also noticed a steady decline and seemingly disappearance of anything crypto in Adsense.

Given that cryptomining in a browser extension is almost certainly going to be done without users permission, its a good call.

They also banned cryptocurrency ads on adsense.
