It is still about Bitcoin, not about "blockchain" Earlier this week I stumbled upon a blog post, where Finnish self-credited "blockchain expert" made a claim that during the last year, term blockchain has passed localbitcoin com in google trends "clearly".
I did not pay attention to this detail, until my co-worker pointed out the mistake. I mean blockchain passes bitcoin in google trends, who cares?
Anyway, there was still this nagging voice in my head, that I have seen the something similar somewhere else as well. Edit 9th of September Some of the wording was edited, since as I discussed with localbitcoin com presenter, such claim, that blockchain has passed bitcoin is search amounts was localbitcoin com made. As pointed out by the presenter, the graph is trying to explain current hype moment of certain search terms, but he certainly understood that you can get the wrong impression from the slide out of context.
You see, bitcoin is going nowhere!
Perhaps you can make a sincere mistake with localbitcoin com slides you have created couple of hours before your pitch, but guess what? Same kind of graph can be found from CreditSuisse report as well. It is true localbitcoin com miracle word "blockhain" has been popping up more and more lately, and the graph shows that blockchain hype is growing, but this kind of graphs make you wonder if it is really based on any real life solutions, or is it just these "blockchain experts" who are making up the buzz.
