The world’s biggest search engine is dedicating a section to cryptocurrencies on its finance platform.
Alongside the world’s major markets covering the US, Europe, Asia and currencies, Google Finance has added a “Crypto” section spotlighting Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH).
The section gives users a rundown on price, “key stats”, and the latest headlines from the cryptoverse.
Google’s incorporation of cryptocurrencies in its finance section follows a long wave in mainstream acceptance over the past year.
Payments giants like Square, PayPal, and Skrill have all integrated cryptocurrencies within their platforms, and traditional financial institutions like JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs have signaled their interest in Bitcoin.
According to Google Trends, exponentially more users are searching for “Bitcoin” than they are for “google finance,” as interest in BTC and cryptocurrencies at large reach historic levels.
While BTC, ETH, LTC, and BCH show up by default on Google Finance’s “crypto” section, additional crypto-based instruments can be found in the search results.
These include 21Shares’ Polkadot and XRP ETPs, and the Ripple XRP Liquid Index, which trades on the Nasdaq.
