The number of Internet searches related to Ether (ETH) has reached the highest level in the history of the altcoin.

According to Google Trends, people around the world are now much more interested in this digital currency than at the turn of 2017-2018.

As a reminder, in January 2018, ETH reached $ 1,432. The altcoin is trading just below $ 1100 today. However, cryptocurrency network metrics periodically update highs. For example, the number of active Ethereum addresses has already reached a record. The growing hashrate of the ETH network is strengthening its security, according to a report from CoinMetrics.
