Alphabet Inc.’s Google changed its blanket ban on cryptocurrency-related advertising, saying it will now allow “regulated” cryptocurrency exchanges in Japan and the U.S. to run ads on its websites.

"Advertisers will need to be certified with Google for the specific country in which their ads will serve," Google wrote in Tuesday in a blog post, adding that advertisers can apply for certification starting in October.
