And yet a mistake.
YouTube representatives through their official Twitter profile they apologized for the confusion, informing that the recordings were deleted due to a malfunction. At the same time, they ensured that all deleted video materials would be restored, as well as their monetization.
Hey there, really sorry about this! This was an error on our side during the review process and has been fixed now. All the videos should be reinstated and strikes resolved. Please let us know if you have any q's.

Although the YouTube bug should already be fixed, not all creators have regained the fruits of their work. Twitter is constantly overwhelming complaints, and YouTube calms down and asks for patience, ensuring that no one gets harmed.
The online community was very divided in response to the confusion about removing videos. Some thought it was a conspiracy against "freedom and currency over which you have no control". Others, however, enjoyed that "scammers and speculators finally got theirs". AND what is your position on cryptocurrencies?
