''Vanced is discontinued for "legal reasons" as vanced was infringing the logo and branding of the original YouTube app as the logo resembles the original logo in a similar way and was used without taking prior permission from Google for using the branding.
We were also asked to remove all links for the distribution of any vanced apps that led to the decision of discontinuation.'' - Vanced Team
