You can google Bitcoin addresses from now on

Bitcoin (BTC)
Crypto acceptance

If you enter crypto addresses in Google's search bar, you can see instant results. However, this also brings disadvantages.

The blockchain has become a bit more transparent. Google now automatically reads Bitcoin, Ethereum and other coins through searches. Balances of wallets, for example, can be retrieved by entering them in Google's search bar. In addition to Bitcoin and Ethereum, the search engine also reads blockchain explorers from Arbitrum, Avalanche, Fantom, Optimism and Polygon.

Google even maps out different address formats for Bitcoin. These include: P2PKH, P2SH and Bech32. On Platform X, however, market observers are concerned about privacy.

For example, anyone who googles their own addresses is effectively exposing them to Google.

Google plays an important role for cryptocurrencies. Search volume for key terms such as "Bitcoin," for example, is an important indicator of market sentiment.
