Searches for ‘AI’ on Google smashes Bitcoin and crypto this year

The launch of ChatGPT in November last year has seen a continued increase in searches for

“AI” on Google, much more so than crypto-related terms.

Google users were far more interested in looking up artificial intelligence (AI) than

“Bitcoin” or “crypto” this year, according to data from Google Trends.

Since 2020, search interest for “Bitcoin” and, occasionally, “crypto” had managed to outpace

searches for “AI,” however, Google’s data shows this started to flip around August 2022.

Searches for “AI” broke out around November 2022, the same month that OpenAI’s ChatGPT was launched, and has widened the gap from crypto-related search terms since.

Worldwide search interest in “AI” currently commands a Google Trends score of 91,

while Bitcoin sits at 22. Google scores search terms from 0 to 100 based on a topic’s proportion to total searches across all topics.

The results may not come as a surprise, as Bitcoin

tickers down

has continued to suffer from the tail-end of a bear market cycle lasting for the latter half of 2021 and most of 2022. However, it began regaining lost ground over the course of this year.

Bitcoin began the year at $16,900 — far below its all-time high of $68,729 on Nov.

11, 2021, but has since gained around 150% to reach a price of $43,400 at the time of publication, per CoinMarketCap data.

Google Trends shows Bitcoin saw the most interest from El Salvador, Nigeria, Netherlands, Brazil, and Switzerland.

On the other hand, artificial intelligence had a banner year for developments, ranging from fears that AI could take actors’ jobs, a proliferation of AI nude services, and excitement over new

chatbots, including ChatGPT, Google Bard, Meta AI and GrokAI — the latter of which was launched by tech billionaire Elon Musk.

Google Trend data shows particular interest in AI from users in Vietnam, China, the Philippines and Myanmar.
