Bitcoin is reaching for the stars. The world’s most popular cryptocurrency is taking a seat in the pantheon of pop – right next to Post Malone, Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande.
As Bitcoin searches for mainstream adoption and everyday use by everyday people, the king coin is currently piling up more searches than mainstream pop singers.
On the 12-month chart, Bitcoin has been trending high against several chart-toppers with a current index of 45 compared to 17 for Ariana Grande and 15 for both Post Malone and Taylor Swift.
The trio of singers is not short on news. Post Malone just scored another #1 hit with his third studio album, Hollywood’s Bleeding.
It features a list of chart-topping artists: SZA, DaBaby, Halsey, Meek Mill, Lil Baby, Ozzy Osbourne, Travis Scott, Swae Lee, Future and Young Thug. The album shot to the top of the charts on Billboard’s Hot 200.
