Indeed, Paul Tudor Jones surprised Wall Street earlier this month when he revealed a significant stake in bitcoin, prompting a swirl of media activity. And there are indications of more broad interest on social media.
Since the start of the year, daily Twitter mentions of Bitcoin have roughly doubled to 165,000, according to Sentieo, an AI-enable research platform. The same is true on Worldwide Google Trends, Sentieo’s data show.
