New data shows that several altcoins, including Cardano (ADA) and XRP, are among the most sought-after crypto assets of 2022.

According to new research from personal finance website DollarGeek, Bitcoin (BTC) is the most searched digital asset both globally and in the US, followed by popular dog-themed meme assets Shiba Inu (SHIB) and Dogecoin (DOGE).

Statistics show that the largest crypto asset by market cap was searched an average of 4.57 million times per month in the US through 2022, while SHIB received 1.29 million searches and DOGE 729,000.

Globally, royal crypto was searched 28.4 million times per month, while Shiba Inu and Dogecoin were searched 4.43 million and 5.85 million times, respectively.

According to a DollarGeek spokesperson,

“Bitcoin continues to be the most popular cryptocurrency in the US and around the world, being the first cryptocurrency to become more widely used since its launch in 2009. However, its alternatives, though small by a wide margin, are catching up to it in popularity, such as the high number of searches for some of the youngest cryptocurrencies.”

Leading smart contract platform Ethereum (ETH) and its rival Avalanche (AVAX) round out the top five. Layer-1 blockchains saw 611,000 and 534,000 US monthly searches this year, respectively, and 3.8 million and 861,000 searches worldwide.

The other five digital currencies in the top 10 list include BTC alternative Litecoin (LTC) at number 6, Cardano at number 7, XRP at number 8, decentralized finance (DeFi) protocol Safemoon (SFM) at number 9 and the quantum-stable blockchain Nexus ( NXS ) on the 10th.
