According to Google Trends, interest in NFTs saw a dramatic spike at the start of the year as Dapper LABS NBA Top Shot and vintage Ethereum-based NFTs saw frenzied speculation.
While the bubble initially appeared short-lived — with search volume drying up by roughly 75% as of the end of June, interest began to bounce back in July before breaking into new highs at the end of October.
Since then, Google search traffic for NFT-related keywords has continued to surge, doubling over the past three months.
The spike in interest has seen “NFT” overtake many of keywords that have long-dominated crypto-related search traffic, including “DEFI,” “Ethereum,” and even “blockchain.”
While DOGecoin firmly captured the publics imagination during the second quarter — with search volume for “Dogecoin” rising to rival “Bitcoin” in early May, dog-token fever quickly subsided in the third quarter. As such, the Google Trends data suggests the momentum behind the canine-coin rally was imMEDIAtely channelled into hype for NFTs.
NFT-mania sweeps Asia
According to Google Trends, NFT search traffic is currently dominated by Asian nations, with China, Uganda, Singapore, Hong Kong and the Philippines topping the keywords search rankings.
China‘s search volume for ’NFT peaked between Sep 5 to 11 this year. The month before the spike, Chinese tech conglomerate Tencent launched its NFT trading platform Huanhe and Alibaba launched a marketplace allowing users to TRADE licenses to create NFTs from copyrighted content.
However, the Chinese Communist Party released a series of statements denouncing NFTs via official state media publication The Peoples Daily on Sept. 10, likely spurring the retracement in search volume since.
