According to Google Trends data, the term "Bitcoin Iran" has soared 4450% in the past seven days. The term "Bitcoin" has also risen sharply globally, reaching 100 on Wednesday, compared to 40 a week ago. Nigeria is the region where these two words are most frequently used. Canada, Singapore and the United States have also developed a strong interest in "Bitcoin Iran". When these data came out, the price of Bitcoin continued to rise sharply, and the weekly increase was more than 15%. Commentators immediately began blaming the rise on Iran, saying geopolitical instability often leads to higher prices. Others, however, are less convinced, claiming that the connection is actually a fictional narrative, but as it becomes mainstream, it may still be a self-fulfilling prophecy.
