Interest for “BTC” has exploded to a new record on Google Trends as search results for bitcoin’s ticker symbol skyrocket.
The phenomenon started around August 30, when “BTC” searches suddenly went parabolic. As shown below, the search term is currently conferring a value of “100,” denoting that it has reached peak popularity, based on partial data gathered since the beginning of September.
This is a highly significant outcome considering that search results for BTC have failed to peak above a value of “25” for the remainder of its existence.
This result is even more revealing when placing “BTC” alongside a similarly popular and trending topic, let’s say, USD – the ticker symbol for the US dollar.
