Interest in cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin has grown steadily in recent years. As Blockchain technology in general and crypto assets in particular, they are increasingly used by society. Which begins to take advantage of the multiple advantages in the use of this technology. And a sign of that massification in interest in cryptocurrencies can be seen in the fact that Americans search for “Bitcoin” on Google in the early hours of the morning.
The rise of cryptocurrencies
Bitcoin’s history has been one of a true upward race since its inception eleven years ago. Well, although it was not until 2017 when the world’s first cryptocurrency began to be known worldwide. The truth is that the short period of time since it took its first steps, until today when it is one of the main financial assets in the world, has been extremely short.
And along with this growth in knowledge about Bitcoin, there has also been an increase in its price, as well as in the investments it receives. Reason why, in recent years it went from being worth practically nothing, to almost $ 10,000 in which it is currently listed. After having reached a historical maximum of $ 20,000 in 2017.
However, and despite its enormous growth in recent years. Even a good part of the inhabitants of the planet, if not the majority, do not have even basic knowledge about what Bitcoin is. Nor, of course, on how to acquire and use them. A gap in knowledge that is beginning to close little by little.
Americans Google BTC on Google
Thus, it is not surprising that there is a growing interest within society to learn about cryptocurrencies. This is manifested in the increase in Google searches for Bitcoin, in countries like the United States. Where the number of cryptoactive users is constantly increasing.
However, in the US case, these searches have an interesting characteristic. Well, as evidenced by the statistics provided by Google Trends, the vast majority of searches made by Americans are concentrated in the early hours of the morning. Specifically around 1:00 am Eastern.
From this we can draw two conclusions. The first, that the time Americans spend learning about cryptocurrencies is still curious. Well, although this time is partially justified because 1:00 am ET is equivalent to 10:00 pm in California, a normal Internet surfing time. It is still a significant proportion of Americans who search for Bitcoin in Google at dawn.
While the second conclusion is that there is a fairly sustained interest in Bitcoin. Because, even after the attack on Twitter on July 15, it brought up the number of searches for BTC on Google in the afternoon.
The number of users searching for the cryptocurrency at dawn has remained stable. Proving that American citizens are interested in virtual currency, regardless of events like Wednesday’s.
