BlockchainCenter recently launched an interactive heat map that visualizes search interest for different coins by country, with the data sourced from Google Trends. Some interesting takeways from the heat map are:
- Bitcoin is by far the most searched coin in all countries. This comes as no surprise.
- The market cap ranking does not mirror the search volume ranking. Dogecoin is not in the Top 30 by market cap, for instance. Yet it is placed in the Top 10 of most searched cryptocurrencies.
- South America appears to be the most “Bitcoin Maximalist” continent, with 4 countries making the Top 10.
- Asia seems to be most open to alt coins.
The coins being tracked are: Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), IOTA (IOTA), Monero (XMR), Tron (TRX), Dogecoin (DOGE), and Cardano (ADA).
Click on the link below for full access to the interactive map. Once you’re at the interactive map you can also compare the different cryptocurrencies with the different countries. For instance, you can compare BTC vs ETH to see what that data looks like on a global search scale.
