Search Record from Google in Late 2021
Global search interest for "NFT" surpassed "crypto" and "Bitcoin" for the first time ever in late 2021, according to the search record from Google.
It appears search trends for non-fungible tokens are rising as they increasingly serve as a vehicle within the growing metaverse and decentralized finance broadly.
At the same time, Google searches for Bitcoin (BTC-USD) have not recovered since it hit a trough of $30K back in mid-July.
The world's largest digital token did whipsaw to a record high later in November, but has since made lower highs off that peak, now changing hands below $48.8K per token.
Previously, (Dec. 2) the first NFT focused exchange-traded fund went live.
