Data Shows Bitcoin Has Radically Changed

Story by: Billy Bambrough

Bitcoin, which has exploded back into the public consciousness over the last few months due to its surging price and a raft of positive cryptocurrency developments, is still a relatively new technology, just into its tenth year.

The bitcoin price, the biggest driver of bitcoin and cryptocurrency awareness, has gone from pennies per bitcoin 10 years ago to around $8,000 and has thrust crypto into the investment limelight as individuals and institutions scramble to grab a slice of the bitcoin pie.

Now, research has found bitcoin has matured as an asset, evidenced by analysis of increasingly complex bitcoin and cryptocurrency conversations (mostly), a drop in fraud concerns, and people talking more about the future of bitcoin than the past.

Despite bitcoin being found to have matured, it remains a highly volatile asset.


The research, from data provider Indexica and first reported by financial newswire Bloomberg, found there had been a “coming of age” for bitcoin, based on the study of the language used in thousands of text documents.

Bitcoin, which rose from under $1,000 per bitcoin to almost $20,000 in 2017, floundered in 2018 as the expected investment in cryptocurrencies from major financial institution and adoption from big retailers failed to materialize.
