Google trends slow, despite 190% price gain in Bitcoin

Bitcoin prices are scaling at a fast pace. Up 190% in 2019 so far, but it still does not have enough support from the Google search trends. The retail interest seems to be low after 2018 slump but do we have a rebound just around the corner?

Bitcoin prices remain marginally shy of $11000 and are up almost 190% compared to where they were at the start of the year. However, this sudden optimism in the price is not supported by Google search this time around.

The last time when Bitcoin had witnessed such a large increase in its price, it was backed by the growing number of retailers showing curiosity. Google search engines supported the frenzy and December 2017 marked a high for bitcoin price crossing $19000. Google searches and prices peaked together during this crypto boom.

Though we witness a spike in keyword 'bitcoin' searches as compared to the last year, there is still sufficient room for growth. Search engines may aid in reading the market sentiment and could also be supportive of potential price movement.

If we take a quick look at the correlation between Bitcoin search and price levels in December 2017, we have a strong positive number. Connecting the dots, if these search engine trends continuing pouring in more curiosity to the cryptocurrency market, prices could go flying high.

The institutional giants like Fidelity Digital Asset Services and the Intercontinental Exchange’s Bakkt project are both due to launch in 2019, which could further aid the upside.
