Google Finance now has a special field that is crypto. And it has a placement that’s prominent too.
At the top of the page where users can compare markets, Crypto is listed as one of the five standard markets, which also includes the US, European countries, Asia and currencies.
This seems to be an indication of the growing presence of crypto in the mainstream, such as the Twitter account “Documenting Bitcoin” which has the newest feature popped up.
Bitcoin has risen to levels that can always be a New Year, largely due to the institutional takeover of the asset. From MassMutual to MicroStrategy, Bitcoin is increasingly an integral part of the corporate planet.
This sets it apart from the 2017 bull market, which was mainly driven by retail investors. According to Bing Trends, the search for “Bitcoin” in the past few months did not match the search three years ago. (Significantly more people search for “crypto” than for “Google Finance” to find exactly what it’s worth according to Google styles.)
Even so, crypto is now part of the money that is monetary.
At the moment, it seems that finance is just a limited selection of cryptocurrencies on Google. Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin, and Litecoin money are shown by default when you click on the “Crypto” tab.
A search for Cardano’s ADA, Polkadots DOT and Stellar’s XLM token does not provide any overall results – neither for the log nor for the token’s ticker. XRP delivered an overall result for the Ripple XRP Liquid Index, which is traded on the Nasdaq.
