According to Google Trends, Solana is the most searched in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, Cagayan Valley, and Central Luzon; Ethereum on the other hand is popular in Region XII, Eastern Visayas, and Central Visayas.

Recently, these two networks had local communities supporting its further adoption and spread in the Philippines; SuperteamPH for Solana and ETH63 for Ethereum.

Launched this month, Superteam is the distributed talent layer of the Solana Ecosystem. It aims to empower individuals in web3 through education, opportunities, and community. Goals include hosting in-person meet-ups, organizing activities nationwide, and attracting over 2,000 registrations for hackathons.

ETH63 is the first Ethereum community in the country officially supported by the Ethereum Foundation. It aims to increase awareness and spark interest in Ethereum through meetups and events. The initiative seeks to create a platform for networking, learning, and sharing insights among Ethereum enthusiasts, developers, and leaders. Key goals include cultivating broader interest in Ethereum, encouraging exploration of opportunities within the ecosystem, and fostering collaboration for growth and innovation.

Solana vs. Ethereum vs. Bitcoin

In a recent report, despite Bitcoin exceeding $50,000, its Google search interest continues to be historically low compared to its price. In the Philippines, interest peaked during the ascent of web3 gaming, but has waned despite Bitcoin’s price rebound.

However, the search interest for the top cryptocurrency remains higher than that of other cryptocurrencies in the Philippines. In comparison to Solana’s average of 17 and Ethereum’s 8, Bitcoin achieved an average of 47.

As per the data, Bitcoin is most searched in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, MIMAROPA, and Caraga.

With BTC’s value increasing, the approval of Bitcoin Spot ETFs and anticipation of the upcoming Bitcoin Halving are noted to driving this market surge. BTC trading volumes surged from $16 billion to $50 billion between January 1st and January 10th, following the ETF approval. Historically, halvings have led to price surges, resulting in new all-time highs within a year. The fourth Bitcoin Halving is scheduled for April 2024.
