- Google Finance added a crypto price tab on its domain.
- The tab includes BTC, ETH, LTC, and BCH.
- The crypto tab also provides pricing information for various cryptocurrencies.
Google Finance has added a crypto price tab to its finance.google.com domain. The section now appears in the Compare Markets category alongside current stock and currency markets, simply titled ‘Crypto’.
Google Alphabet also owns the video platform YouTube — which has usually bothered crypto users by banning educational and news content, often at random. Cointelegraph and CoinDesk, two major publications in the crypto news space, have been subject to suspensions.
However, YouTube has overturned the suspensions after the publications proved they were not in breach of YouTube’s terms of service.
Over the past year, the crypto market has attracted mainstream interest. At the same time, big corps and institutional investors have started to invest in the asset class. Their involvement helped the crypto market cap pass $1 trillion in January.
The crypto market cap ultimately peaked north of $1.7 trillion in February before facing a pullback. At current values, the digital asset total is worth over $1.4 trillion.
Both retail adoption and firm interest have been growing over the last three months. Additionally, with top firms like Tesla and MasterCard actively embracing cryptos, the need for more clear regulation is growing, according to US SEC Commissioner Hester Peirce.
Calls for more precise rules on digital assets will likely grow louder as the bull market heats up. Currently, the new Biden admin can give a fresh look at the regulatory aspect, Peirce added.
