Google Searches for “Ai” Dominate Bitcoin and Other Cryptocurrencies This Year!

By Roze 3 Min Read

Google Trends data shows that search interest in AI was significantly higher than that in “Bitcoin” or “crypto” this year. Since 2020, “Bitcoin” and, on occasion, “crypto” have surpassed “AI” in terms of search interest; however, beginning in August 2022, the tide began to turn, according to Google’s data.

Searches for “AI” began in November 2022, coinciding with the debut of OpenAI’s ChatGPT, and have since grown in popularity, surpassing crypto-related search phrases.

With a Google Trends score of 91, global search interest in “AI” is presently higher than Bitcoin’s 22. In order to assign a score between zero and one hundred, Google considers the percentage of searches for a certain topic relative to all topics.

Due to Bitcoin’s (BTC) continuous downfall over the second half of 2021 and the majority of 2022, the findings might not be shocking. It started making up for lost ground this year, though.

Google Searches for "Ai" Dominate Bitcoin and Other Cryptocurrencies This Year!

As of this writing, according to CoinMarketCap, the price of Bitcoin is $43,400, up from an initial value of $16,900 (which was far lower than its all-time high of $68,729 on November 11, 2021).

Bitcoin was most popular in El Salvador, Nigeria, the Netherlands, Brazil, and Switzerland, according to Google Trends. Conversely, AI had a very eventful year, with many new developments, such as the introduction of chatbots like GrokAI (created by tech billionaire Elon Musk), ChatGPT, Google Bard, Meta AI, and concerns that AI could displace actors’ jobs.

Vietnam, China, the Philippines, and Myanmar stand out in terms of Google Trends interest in AI. Autism Capital, a user on Crypto X (previously Twitter), was one of the first to notice the trend in a tweet they sent out to their 249,900 followers on December 26.

People had already searched up crypto terminology extensively in prior years, according to one commenter on the site, which may explain the gap. Bitcoin and crypto are relatively older points of interest compared to AI.

An investigation by crypto data aggregator CoinGecko shows that AI also emerged as the overwhelming winner in July when it comes to job searchers.

The study discovered that searches for “AI jobs” increased after ChatGPT was launched in November 2022, surpassing searches for “crypto jobs” by a factor of four.
