“What is Bitcoin?” tops Google’s 2018 what’s asked trending list

posted 6 months ago
Many investors & regulators are asking the fundamental question of: ‘What is Bitcoin?’ In fact, that was the most searched definition in the US & UK in 2018, according to Google Trends. While previously notorious among anarchists & day traders, Bitcoin, which turned 10 this year, gained mainstream recognition after surging 1,400% in 2017 & then falling 80% in 2018.

But making sense of assets that are digital, created by computer networks & susceptible to extreme volatility is no easy feat. That’s not to mention all the jargon: blockchain, hash rate, miners & nodes etc.
