According to Google statistics, in mid-2017, Russians started showing much more interest in cryptocurrencies and mining than at the beginning of the year, Bitcoin.com reports.
“Google users in Russia have shown the strongest interest in cryptocurrency industry in the first half of 2017. And the total number of requests has increased by about 250%," – Google said.
The greatest increase was shown in requests for Ethereum – 760%. Bitcoin search increased by 220%. And mining began to interest Russians by 560% more. The fact that digital currencies and mining are in the top 100 "how" and "what is it" search requests is adding to the overall picture. In addition, Google also said that in the first six months, Russians have become much more likely to search ICO related topics, though the company does not give exact statistics.
Google analyzed requests geographically. It turned out that the stereotype about trends being spread from the capital to regions is irrelevant in this case. The highest percentage increase in cryptocurrencies and mining search requests was shown in Khabarovsk and Kaliningrad.
