Google Trends Bitcoin interest at 6 month high

posted 22 days ago
The latest data from Google Trends confirms the uptick in curiosity about Bitcoin after BTC/USD price volatility this week. The proportion of searches for ‘Bitcoin’ is now higher than any weekly period since April 8th, when its price began a major surge from $7000 to $10,000.

Interest in some related terms, such as ‘is Bitcoin dead’ and ‘HODL,’ was more apparent, reaching its highest since February this year, when the price was trending down from all-time highs around $20,000. While mainstream media publications often pick up on price decreases as an indicator of the ‘risk’ involved in Bitcoin as an investment, the impact of price movements on "broader public awareness" contributes to the opinion held by many commentators, that "any publicity is good publicity."
