Despite the active political agenda in the US, the biggest Google search topic in the country is actually Bitcoin. According to Ahrefs , a specialist tool for keywords and Google search ranking, Bitcoin was the subject of 1.9 million searches in the US and 12 million internationally, in the last month alone.Surprisingly, the public is making more searches for information about cryptocurrency, specifically Bitcoin, than about such essential topics as food, medicine and even high-traffic topics such as celebrities. The second highest search query was “Donald Trump”, with 1.5 million searches, and the third was “breaking news” with 1.4 million.

The top 3: Nevada, California and New Jersey

Nevada tops the list of states with the highest number of searches about the topic. Nevada “ranks as the No. 1 most crypto-friendly state in the US, according to a 2022 SmartAsset study,” CNBC notes. “This is due to a number of factors, including the high availability of jobs within the crypto industry and crypto-friendly legislation. Local governments aren’t allowed to tax blockchain technology, the underlying tech that cryptocurrency relies on to operate, for example.” The next best states for crypto enthusiasts are California, New Jersey, Texas, Colorado and Illinois.

Interest, curiosity and investment

The volume of searches related to cryptocurrency has been growing continuously. According to a report published in CoinTelegraph, Bitcoin is the subject of 28.4 million searches a month internationally. It’s followed by other cryptocurrencies, such as Dogecoin, with 5.85 million searches; Shiba In u, with 4.43 million; and Ethereum, with 3.84 million monthly searches globally.

The same site also revealed what questions people are most asking, such as what is cryptocurrency, how to make crypto transactions, how to buy crypto and even how to create a crypto asset.

This upward trend in the amount of interest in cryptocurrencies is reflected not only in terms of online curiosity but also in investments. Grand View Research reports that the global cryptocurrency market was valued at USD $4.67 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach USD $5.15 million in 2023.
