Anthony “Pomp” Pompliano, founder and managing partner of investment firm Morgan Creek Digital Assets, said his popular crypto podcast “Off the Chain” was finally restored by Apple in its podcast store.

Apple suddenly removed the show from the store over the weekend which prompted a lot of negative comments from avid followers claiming censorship issues. The timing of the action was also questioned when the show reached the number four spot in the investing category on the US iTunes Store.

Prior the removal of the podcast, the show’s topic was titled “The Ultimate Bitcoin Argument” which featured known Bitcoin supporter, Murad Mahmudo, who talked about his points as to why fiat currencies will fail and why central banks and financial institutions should embrace Bitcoin.

“I’m not sure what happened but this has highlighted the challenges of centralized organizations… The fact that this was removed without warning is the toughest part to deal with,” Pompliano said during the removal of the podcast.

Apart from Apple, the podcast is also distributed on Google, Spotify, Libsyn and other platforms.
