Despite the recent downturn in the cryptocurrency market, which aided Bitcoin (BTC), the first and largest cryptocurrency to lose relatively 50% of its value within a few days, the interest in buying Bitcoin (BTC) still grows as shown by recent data.
There’s a report issued by Shenliancaijing in Chinese showing that searches for Bitcoin on Baidu over the past thirty days have spiked by 183%.
This recent spike could be simply attributed to the moment of financial crisis initiated by the outbreak of COVID-19. Basically, people are looking for a safe haven in Bitcoin.
Also, Bitcoin searches on Google are also up to a reasonable extent over the past three weeks. This growth of interest in Bitcoin was last experienced in June 2019, when the digital currency was closer to recording its yearly high.
Obviously, the price trend of Bitcoin controls the interest of the people. This simply implies that the volatility of the price of the digital currency directly makes the interest of the public volatile.
At this time, the interest in Bitcoin is expected to drop, since there’s a significant loss of price. Howbeit, the reverse seems to be the case as shown in the report. The public is clearly leveraging this moment to buy more Bitcoin, which indicates their belief in the prospect of the cryptocurrency.

This shows that people have a growing interest in buying Bitcoin (BTC) rather than selling it, in a time when the cryptocurrency has an opportunity to prove itself as a safe haven, but still not exploring the chance.
