The Largest and most populous city of Nigeria has been ranked as the top searcher of Bitcoin. The growing interest of ‘Lagosians’ in the cryptocurrency might be an indicator of the economic instability and the lack of trust in the government’s monetary institution in the African country or may be due to the youth in the city wants to try out new alternatives for investments.
Vienna, the capital city of the European country Austria, stood second in the searches for Bitcoin. The searches for the cryptocurrency increased after the Austria Blockchain Summit held in April. Being the 14th richest country in the world in terms of GDP, the country has a well-developed social market economy. So, Austria’s interest in Bitcoin is a no surprise, as the state wants to explore new avenues of the economy.

Munich, the city which hosts the largest crypto meet-ups in Germany, is listed as the sixth city which googled Bitcoin the most. This tends to indicate that the investors and Bitcoin enthusiasts are not accepting the regulatory authorities’ ban on cryptocurrency assets.

The surge in searches for Bitcoin in New York may tend to indicate that the New Yorkers fear that a BitLicense will be required to search for the cryptocurrency in the near future.
