“Dogecoin” And “Ethereum” Are Top 10 Google Searches in 2021

Inflation and economic uncertainty have been on the rise in 2021. As a result, the growth of the crypto market has resulted in two cryptocurrencies making it into the top ten trending news-related topics on Google Search in 2021.

Dogecoin (DOGE) and Ethereum (ETH) featured in the top 10 trending news-related topics in 2021, with DOGE ranking fourth, and the search term ‘Ethereum price’ in the tenth position as traders and investors look for alternatives to traditional markets.

Every year in December, Google releases a list of the most frequently searched queries on its platform and a breakdown of the most popular searches by nation. Notably, Afghanistan, AMC stock, COVID vaccine, GME stock, Stimulus check, Georgie Senate Race, Hurrican Ida, and COVID make up the remainder of the other searches. 

Dogecoin’s surge in 2021 was inspired by celebrities, including Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who pushed the asset on Twitter. Redditors behind the GameStop pump shifted their attention to Dogecoin, resulting in a huge spike in trading volume among cryptocurrency traders. 

In the beginning, the crypto community did not take DOGE seriously until it soared by an incredible 800% in less than a day, causing widespread consternation.

DOGE Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels

Looking at the Dogecoin price chart, we can see that DOGE faces strong resistance at around $0.17. If buyers can pierce this resistance level, we could see DOGE push to $0.18. However, if the price drops, then DOGE could drop to $0.16 or below.
