Bitcoin + Occam's Razor
Occam's Razor is a famous Latin phrase, meaning the answer to a problem is usually the most obvious. For example, if you hear hooves and live in Canada, it's probably a horse, not a zebra.

We can see the Bitcoin price tops correlate with Google search tops. The answer to "when does Bitcoin top" is "when most people search for it." Let's check what people are searching for now on Google.
