The “interest over time” in Dogecoin (DOGE) is waning, according to Google Trends, a search trends feature that measures how frequently a given search term is entered into the search engine run by Alphabet Inc GOOGL GOOG subsidiary Google.
What Happened: An interest-over-time value of 100 is an indicator of peak popularity for a term, while 50 means the term is half as popular and zero means there is not enough data for the given term.
On Apr. 15, Bitcoin (BTC), DOGE, and Ethereum (ETH) had values of 11, 11, and three, respectively, which means both DOGE and BTC had a similar interest over time in the United States.
By the next day, interest over time in DOGE had touched 100, while BTC and ETH were at 16 and 3 respectively.
