The return of turbulence to the crypto market and the fall in the value of bitcoin caused a surge of interest on the Internet in the leading digital currency.
According to the Google Trends service, last week the number of search queries for bitcoin reached the highest level since May last year.
Web-users from El Salvador, Nigeria, Austria, the Netherlands, and Switzerland were the most curious. They were most interested in the situation around BTC in mid-June.
The USA took only 19th place in this rating, and Russia is located on the 61st line. In our country, interest in bitcoin in May-June also increased dramatically.

The top five Russian regions, whose residents are most interested in cryptocurrency, are the Irkutsk region, Dagestan, Tatarstan, Chechnya, and Moscow.
