Times are definitely changing for Bitcoin and the crypto industry as the bull market continued to heat up.
Crypto has been in the limelight for quite some time. But thanks to the massive institutional capital, the space has finally received the much-needed legitimacy. In the latest development, Google Finance has added a crypto-dedicated field.
Google Finance is essentially a data site maintained by the tech giant, hence this development is crucial for the digital currency ecosystem. This was first reported by ‘Documenting Bitcoin’ which also revealed that the ‘crypto’ is placed right at the top of the page among five default markets such as the US, Europe, Asia, and Currencies.
Here, the users of the platform can compare the aforementioned markets. The tool offers a rundown of real-time as well as historical data for Bitcoin [BTC], Ether [ETH], Litecoin [LTC] and Bitcoin Cash [BCH] with just a click.
However, the information for other top cryptocurrencies such as Cardano [ADA], XRP, Binance Coin [BNB], Polkadot [DOT] was not available yet on Google Finance’s website.
The latest move by the website which focuses on business news and financial information hosted by Google is no less than a milestone. It is indicative of the industry’s growing mainstream presence and demand for the latest information on the top coins in the market.
