Google finance has added the ‘crypto’ tab in its domain. It is a mark of crypto’s inclusion in mainstream finance. 

The crypto tab in the ‘compare market‘ category lets you compare the prices of stock and currency markets. When a Google Finance user clicks on the ‘crypto’ tab, prices of Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Litecoin and Bitcoin (BCH) appear in the drop-down menu.

Google has previously been very hard on crypto-related products and services. Alphabet, the parent company of Google, has multiple times suspended, banned or removed crypto-mentioning content from Youtube. However, it seems the wave of embracing crypto has reached Google as well.

The digital asset class is worth $1.4 trillion at the moment. It is very small in size as compared to the stock market. Nonetheless, the value of the cryptocurrency spike instantly. This can bring a surge in the overall value of the market. For instance, the crypto market cap hit $1.7 trillion in February before a pullback brought the prices down.
