A recent analysis of the queries sent by Internet users in France on Google showed an imbalance in the mention of bitcoin and crypto. In fact, it seems that the French prefer to search for the keyword crypto than the keyword bitcoin. But, it is the opposite everywhere else in the world.
The French are not Bitcoin maximalists!
On July 24, the account of Jean Christophe made a twitter post saying: “After the Minitel instead of the Internet, France is no exception in favor of Crypto instead of Bitcoin.“. The statement is made after analyzing the number of queries sent by Internet users on Google with the keywords crypto and bitcoin.
It turns out that in the world, the search keyword bitcoin was more than crypto. However, most French people search for the keyword crypto more than the keyword bitcoin. France is like that out of balance with the whole world on the mention of bitcoin and crypto.
It’s true that everywhere else in the world, bitcoin (BTC) is considered the most essential currency, not to mention the largest crypto by market capitalization. This could explain why Internet users use the keyword bitcoin more.
Recall that there is a group of people called Bitcoin maximalists who have a weak imitation of any cryptocurrency outside of bitcoin. That said, recent data may suggest that there are fewer maximizers in France than elsewhere.
The imbalance in France of bitcoin and crypto mentions suggests that the French consider bitcoin (BTC) as one digital asset among many others (more than 19,000). Still, it is the largest cryptocurrency in the world by market capitalization. And in the rest of the world, bitcoin is considered a benchmark in the crypto industry.
