Interest in cryptomontages like Bitcoin has grown steadily in recent years. As the Blockchain technology in general and cryptoactives in particular, are increasingly used by society. Which begins to take advantage of the many benefits in the use of this technology. And a sign of this massive interest in cryptomonies can be seen in the fact that Americans search for „Bitcoin“ on Google in the early hours of the morning.

The rise of the crypt coins
Bitcoin’s story has been one of a true upward career path since its birth eleven years ago. Although it was not until 2017 when the world’s first cryptomoney began to be known worldwide. The truth is that the short time since it took its first steps, until today when it is one of the world’s main financial assets, has been extremely short.
And along with this growth in knowledge about Bitcoin, there has also been an increase in its price, as well as in the investments it receives. That’s why, in the last few years, it went from being worth practically nothing to the almost $10,000 it is currently trading at. After reaching a historic high of over $20,000 in 2017.
However, despite its enormous growth in recent years. Even a good part of the planet’s inhabitants, if not the majority, do not have even basic knowledge about what Bitcoin is. Nor, of course, how to acquire and use it. A gap in knowledge that is slowly beginning to close.

Thus, it is not surprising that there is a growing interest within society to learn about cryptomoney. This is evident in the increase in Google searches for Bitcoin in countries such as the United States. Where the number of crypto users is constantly increasing.
However, in the case of the United States these searches have an interesting characteristic. As the statistics provided by Google Trends show, the vast majority of searches made by Americans are concentrated in the early hours of the morning. Specifically around 1:00 am in the East.

We can draw two conclusions from this. The first is that it is curious how much time Americans spend learning about cryptomonies. Well, although this time is partially justified because 1:00 am ET is equivalent to 10:00 pm in California, a normal time for surfing the Internet. It is still a significant proportion of Americans who search for Bitcoin on Google in the early hours of the morning.
While the second conclusion is that there is a fairly sustained interest in Bitcoin. This is because, even after the attack on Twitter on July 15, which caused the number of searches on The News Spy to rise in Google in the afternoon.
The number of users looking for the early morning cryptomoney has remained stable. This shows that US citizens are interested in virtual currency, regardless of events like Wednesday’s.
