Public Interest in Bitcoin is Just Getting Started

What amazes me is that despite seeing record levels of trading volumes across crypto exchanges, on the bitcoin futures market, and even on the bitcoin blockchain itself, public interest hasn’t really picked up just yet. 

Looking at google trends for the search term “bitcoin”, we can see that there has been an uptick recently but we’re nowhere near the levels seen in December 2017.

Indeed, despite the massive price movements, a recent survey shows that only 23% of respondents feel that what we’re currently seeing can be classified as FOMO.

Yes, we’ve come a long way already and I would be very surprised if we don’t see some sort of pullback, or at least a consolidation.

Given the overwhelming headlines we’ve seen indicating that mass crypto adoption may be around the corner and given the historic parabolic bull and bear cycles that Bitcoin is used to, in my mind we might be just getting started.

Disclaimer: Crypto is a risky asset class and some coins may eventually reach zero, so please trade with caution and consider diversifying your portfolio.

Bad news for the economy is good for the markets though. The expectation is that the P...
