The days of donating to a YouTuber on Patreon in exchange for no ads are likely over. Gamesindustry reports that YouTubers will no longer be able link their Patreon account unless they monetize their videos, which allows YouTube to run ads on the service.

Essentially, this is YouTube's solution to YouTubers solution to the ad-pocalypse that has been rapidly demonetizing the videos of many big names on the site.
