Twitter released a report last week on its biggest trends over the past two years, and finance—including cryptocurrency—is number one on the list.
A rep for the social media company shared that finance is its “fastest growing conversation topic” on its site right now, and, according to the report, cryptocurrency is at the top of the finance category.
Financial tweets are up 78% year-over-year among average users, meaning it’s gained serious traction among non-professionals that don’t work in the industry.
“We’re witnessing an upswell of passionate crypto-enthusiasts with people on Twitter 3.2x more likely to consider investing in crypto than those not on Twitter,” wrote Twitter’s Director of Financial Services Jeff Melei in a blog post.
Conversations about NFTs, unique tokens that can signify ownership over digital assets, have also exploded on Twitter, seeing a 242% increase, according to the report.
