Is anyone else getting a crypto news popup? If so, how do I fix it?

JUMP TO SOLUTION

[I apologize in advance for the long entry.]
Recently my phone has been opening the browsers (Samsung internet, Chrome, firefox) with a website called crypto-news.space. When I first noticed this I went to the internet and saw that one solution was to clear all of my cookies, browser history, cache, etc. That helped for a day or two but then I started to get the popups, but this time it won't just open one tab, but two or three at a time.
I again, went to the internet and saw that I should clear the cache for the application. So I went to settings, went to clear cache for my browsers. I did this for Chrome and Samsung internet. This didn't work at all because five minutes later, the same crypto-news.space website would pop up. I tried using AVG Antivirus, NoRoot Firewall, Block Site, and many other antivirus/malware and website apps but the problem persisted.
At this point, I disabled the Chrome browser and downloaded FireFox. But the website, crypto-news.space, kept popping up regardless.
I went into safe mode and uninstalled almost all of the apps that I had, got out of safe more and reinstalled them to see if that would help. But, like my past attempts, they did not work.
I have come to the realization that this isn't a problem with my browsers but a problem that is deeply rooted in my phone.
Does anyone have a solution for this?

😁 Thank you very much for the tip, it helped me tremendously!!! I HAD the Save and Repost app for Instagram and the Crypto news ads would not go away. It's been over an hour so far since I deleted the app and no pop-up ads!!! 😁

Nothing new in probably 3 months. 

I uninstalled some mapgenie apps for games I play   and a Craigslist buy/sell app cleaned it with CCleaner   scanned it with avast mobile and havent had a pop up in 20 minutes

Do you experience these symptoms if you test your device in safe mode?
