What’s new? According to a report from Alphabet, Google’s parent company, for the third quarter of 2022, the growth rate of the number of ads placed by the corporation was 6%, the lowest since 2013. Google’s Chief Business Officer Philipp Schindler said that this figure is associated with a decline in advertisers spending in the financial services industry, including the cryptocurrency industry. In his opinion, this is due to the ongoing downturn in the markets, CNBC reports.
