The search trend for the term bitcoin has reduced manifold as per Google Trends. The interest in the term has sunk to a 10th of the level in December 2017.
Another Redditor, u/Steven81 said, “After Facebook, Google does too. Bull is prepped. Seriously though, even Google search trends (for bitcoin) seems to have bottomed, finally, after months and months of falling. Manipulation or not, the way this bear started (ads ban, Korea ban) may also be the one to end it (restart of ads, Korea is back).”
Google had decided to ban the cryptocurrency ads from June onwards. The company had said, it “will ban ads for unregulated or speculative financial products like binary options, cryptocurrency and financial spread betting among others.”
Facebook had also notified the media and the general community of a similar decision.
