The data from Google Trends reveal that Dogecoin Y Ethereum Price were among the terms with the most searches this year, not so Bitcoin
It is very curious how this year, among the 10 most searched terms in Google worldwide the names of two cryptocurrencies that are not Bitcoin: Dogecoin Y Ethereum.
According to the data of Google Trends so far this year, international Internet users have made important searches for these terms, leaving Dogecoin in fourth place among the most searched in topics related to news, and “Price of Ethereum” (Ethereum Price, in English) in tenth place.
Here you can see the complete list in the news area (there are other more specialized searches in sports, games, people, TV shows, among others):
Every year in December Google publishes a list of the most searched queries on its platform, as well as a breakdown of the most popular searches by country. Those terms that have been of greatest interest to users appear in the list.
Dogecoin because she?
Finbold ensures that increased word searches Dogecoin in 2021 was inspired by the boost given to it by some celebrities, including (and perhaps the main one) the CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk, who promoted the asset in Twitter According to our reports, more than a dozen times this year the billionaire has been talking about his controversial and often crazy position in favor of that crypto doggy meme.
But, in addition, we can see it in CryptoMarkets, the price of Doge it has had a significant rise, especially in the first half of the year, although then it fell. DOGE It reached its maximum price of USD $ 0.74 on Saturday, May 8, 2021. However, it did not maintain it and is now at USD $ 0.18. However, those who bought on January 1 still have a whopping 3551% profit.
Ethereum, great winner
The second largest cryptoasset by market capitalization after Bitcoin, Ethereum, it has had a sustained positive performance this year, and perhaps that is why its name, together with the word prices, is among the first searches.
Ethereum (ETH) has had a significant increase this year, with gains for those who bought on January 1 of 479%. But there is more: the price of Ether has not suffered drastic falls (although it has had casualties, but not as great as those of Doge). Its maximum price was USD $ 4,851.98 on Wednesday, November 10, 2021. Today it is priced at USD $ 4,319. It has been a couple of months now that, although with slight falls, it has remained above the USD $ 4,000 barrier.
Likewise, it is expected that Ethereum 2.0, which is currently in development, change the consensus method of the blockchain from proof of work to proof of stake. According to Ethereum Foundation, If the move is successful, the upgrade can reduce the power consumption of Ether up to 99.95%.
We did a search on Google Trends by country and we find that in the United States, Dogecoin was the sixth most searched term and Ethereum Price the tenth.
For its part, in Canada, the price of Bitcoin was in 7th place in the overall searches, and there are no Doge neither Ether. The same is true in Slovenia, where Bitcoin It is in sixth place and it is the only crypto that appears. While, in Sweden, appears Ethereum in eighth place. Meanwhile, a query made in several Latin American countries such as Colombia, Chile, Argentina and Peru, cryptocurrencies do not appear in the 10 largest searches, probably because they all experience internal problems that monopolize the greatest need for information.
Reports we made based on Google Trends last year they gave Bitcoin an important place in searches, in fact, much higher than in the price boom of 2017. This year, the interests of netizens definitely seem to be going a different way.
