Google Finance has now added a crypto market tab to its business tool.
Google Finance Recognizes Crypto
The search engine has added a fifth “Crypto” tab on Google Finance—along with the U.S., Europe, Asian Markets, and Currencies. The application imports the price data from Coinbase.
The section lists an ”about” widget for the four cryptocurrencies in BTC, ETH, LTC, and BCH from Wikipedia. The page allows a graphical comparison between the price action of the above cryptocurrencies.
The add-on also enables direct extraction of Coinbase price to Google Sheets using the GOOGLEFINANCE() function.
The search volume for Bitcoin on Google is considerably more than the competing market indices in the S&P 500 and NASDAQ Composite. The term “Ethereum” recently overtook the two indices as well.
Bitcoin gained on Tesla’s search volume earlier this month, becoming one of the world’s most popular assets. The addition of a new tab sees crypto as a new investment class alongside global equities.
