Marketing automation platform Mailchimp will reportedly shut down all accounts related to cryptocurrencies, including initial coin offerings (ICOs), exchanges, news, books, events, and announcements. Industry expert and Bitcoin advocate Andreas Antonopoulos tweeted on the subject:
This is the second instance I hear of @mailchimp shutting down accounts related to crypto-currencies. Not ones advertising ICOs, or even exchanges. Just news, books, event announcements. https://t.co/R424TfN50W

Evan Van Ness of the Week In Ethereum tweeted that Mailchimp is shutting down their account in four weeks “because they hate Blockchains”.
So @MailChimp is closing the Week In Ethereum account in four weeks because they hate blockchains.
Centralized capricious power is exactly why we need blockchains
