Americans Are Googling â€˜Bitcoinâ€™ in the Middle of the Night
1 AM Eastern time is the most popular time in the US to search the biggest word in crypto.
The hourly data from Google Trends shows that US-based searches for â€œBitcoinâ€� have consistently peaked around 1 AM Eastern time for the past week. This hourly data is only available seven days into the past, so we donâ€™t know if this is an established pattern or a new development.

Out of 50 states, California is the most search-happy at this hour, possibly because 1 AM Eastern represents just 10 PM local time on the west coast. Plenty of reasonable browsing time left in the evening.

Itâ€™s also not surprising that the peak search interest in Bitcoin over the past 30 days coincided with this weekâ€™s notorious Twitter hack. As Satoshi Nakamoto once noticed under similar circumstances, â€œit would have been nice to get this attention in any other context.â€�
Meanwhile, it is still not too late for some of the victims to get their Bitcoin back.
