Buying Cryptocurrencies Nowadays people seem more interested in owning Bitcoin (BTC) than selling what they have.
As we all know Google at this point thinks practically of a “search engine,” so Google Trends can provide interesting insight into what people's curiosity picks these days, and how it relates to pre-recorded curiosity. The thing we're interested in at this time is the world's number one digital currency.
This is especially intriguing given Bitcoin's recent rally since October, which reached an all-time high at the end of November, surpassing just $23,000 today and then correcting lower. Thursday morning, 8:31 UTC, bitcoin was trading at $22,666, still up about 17% on the day and 23% over the week.

At the time, people were less curious to sell it at a rally. Compared to the $100 earned by the interest in buying the cryptocurrency, “Should I sell bitcoin” was $18.
Interestingly, compared to the massive peak of interest, the increase we see today is only 19 for “should I buy bitcoin” and 4 for “should I sell bitcoin” as industry figures claim, today, many people know what bitcoin is. . And how it can be purchased.

The largest number of Bitcoin searches are conducted from Nigeria, followed by South Africa, Switzerland, Austria and the Netherlands. The two clips have received a lot of attention around the world, including Australia, the United States, the United Kingdom, India, Russia, most of Europe, Asia and South America.
In addition to the terms “crypto” and “digital currency,” the first two terms are generally more popular, but both have risen today. Once again, the height cannot be compared to the giant who made the jump at the end of 2017/early 2018.
