Interest in ‘Bitcoin ETF’ is at all-time highs on Google

Interest in ‘Bitcoin ETF’ is at all-time highs on Google

Discussions about the Bitcoin spot ETF have dominated cryptocurrency investors’ talking circles in the last few weeks. This is due to expectations that the United States’ SEC could approve private ETFs indexed on Bitcoin’s (BTC) spot price.

Notably, January 10 is the expected deadline for a decision by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Analysts and commentators are mostly optimistic about the outcome, which has driven a bull rally for Bitcoin, reaching multi-year highs above $47,000 per unit.

In this context, interest in ‘Bitcoin ETF’ Google searches has also reached all-time highs. The interest index surpassed the 50 mark last week and is already setting the 100 maximum points this week.

It is important to understand that this value could change until January 13, as the week is still running. Previously, the keyword only crossed the 25 mark in late 2021 during the Futures ETF approval.

Interestingly, searches for ‘Bitcoin ETF’ mostly happen in countries other than the United States. This suggests a higher interest by Bitcoin speculators watching a foreign regulation rather than organic interest to really acquire the financial product.

Canada (100) is the leading country, followed by Hong Kong (86) and Singapore (85). Moreover, Switzerland (73) is the fourth, while Germany (72) is the fifth most interested country in ‘Bitcoin ETF’.

The United States currently holds the 9th position with 39 interest points.

Either bullish or bearish, the cryptocurrency market has all the eyes on the SEC and the Bitcoin ETF approval on January 10.
