The Google queries for Bitcoin have reached the highest level alongside the spot price amid the inflation fears on the market. As of this week, according to Google Trends, the metric that measures general interest in trading topics, hit 100 for the US search query for the keyword “bitcoin” as we are reading more in today’s bitcoin news.
The Google queries hit a number three times higher than the value of 30 observed in late September and early October this year on a yearly timeframe. In the meantime, the same keyword was trending worldwide at 94 which is still three times higher than the score of 33 in early October 2020. The internet search volume increased after BTC managed to establish an all-time high of $19,915 and the records came as a part of the rally that witnesses the BTC price and increased by more than 400 percent since the mid-March crash to $,858.
This also marked the second time that BTC came to testing the $20,000 all-time high level since the 2017 December frenzy. Back then, the Google Trend global score for BTC hit 100 on a 5-year timeframe but now, the trend reached 24 and maxed out but it recorded the best level since June last year. Crypto analyst Jebb McAfee, stated that an underscored Google Trend attached with the record high BTC price, shows that the cryptocurrency had more room to expand. The data could invalidate that institutional investors are now driving the BTC prices upwards.
A few companies like Square and Microstrategy replaced a huge chunk of their cash reserves with BTC and their decision came during the wake of the Federal Reserve’s bond-buying and low-interest-rate policies that removed shine from the short-term government debt and the crashing US dollar. In the meantime, the fears of long-term inflation made BTC look like an appealing asset thanks to the limited supply. Billionaire Paul Tudor Jones said:
“In a world where you’ve got $90 trillion worth of equity market cap and God knows how many trillions of fiat currency, etcetera…it’s the wrong market cap, for instance, relative to gold, which is $8 or $9 trillion. I’m going to assume that it’s the wrong [Bitcoin] price for the possibilities that it has. And I’m going to assume that the path forward from here is north.”
