Bitcoin’s price momentum has rekindled interest in cryptocurrencies. Crypto apps, such as Coinbase and Blockchain, recently appeared among the most popular search requests on Apple’s App Store.

They love crypto again

Coinbase, the $8 bln cryptocurrency exchange that is based in San Francisco, also offers its customers the possibility to trade and store digital assets with the help of their Android smartphone. Currently, Coinbase is the 20th most popular app in the “Finance” category.

On May 14, Coinbase was placed among the most searched apps on the App Store, occupying sixth place. Blockchain Wallet, another popular app for storing, using and trading cryptocurrencies, was placed eighth in the ‘Trending’ section.

FOMOing in

According to trading analyst Alex Krüger, the latest bull run wasn’t driven by retail investors. The price was rapidly rising due to the influx of institutional money. According to Krüger, a handful of high-profile buyers were responsible for the huge price rally. A quick look at the skyrocketing trading volumes reported by the two largest institutional players (CME and Grayscale) shows that it indeed might be the case.

Hence, we’ve only see the tip of the iceberg of the upcoming cryptocurrency rally. Once more casual investors jump on the bandwagon, the price of Bitcoin could surge to brand-new highs.
