Sentimental Analysis for Cryptocurrencies- December 23

  • admin

Cryptocurrencies are in a very difficult territory where no fundamental or technical indicators is actually affecting the price than the sentiment of the community. Every news article or a social mention is actually driving the trend and direction of where the prices are heading to. Although most of the sentiment is derived from the sentiment of the Bitcoin- the largest cryptocurrency, still some altcoins have their specific pros and cons that change their variance from that of Bitcoin. Let’s look at the few indicators that are used widely across to determine the sentiment.

Bitcoin Sentimental Analysis

As mentioned it’s the largest coin in the market that decides most of the trend for the crypto markets is necessary to understand that sentiment it garners among the community. A lot of news flow and sell off has dampened the short term sentiment but yes there are some long-term positives which make Bitcoin an interesting study. An analysis of its social mention and greed and fear index would give us a clear idea of what is happening

Analysis Type Tool Analysis- Score Sentiment
#BTC – Hashtag Analysis Keyhole Score: 92

Positives: 54.7 %

Negative: 4.2%

Neutral- 41.1%

Positive to Neutral- Positives rising
#BTC- Social Media Mentions Social Mention Sentiment 14:0 in favor of positives

With 14 scores towards neutral and 14 in favor of Positives

Positive to Neutral
Fear to Greed Index Score 31–Fear Negative
Fear to Greed Index CNN Money Score 3 -Extreme Fear Negative


So Bitcoin is finally above USD 4000 and it seems all joys on the street. But the sentimental indicators tell a little different story. While on social media there is positivity around BTC the fear and greed index still show fear and extreme fear cases indicating that people are yet not sure whether this rally is really constructive or is it just short squeeze and there are chances market may fizzle out again. For the confidence to sustain we believe BTC will have to continue its upward journey atleast till USD 5000 levels- a logical support a lot of technical guys are also mentioning about.

Altcoin Sentimental Analysis

Fear and Greed index is only available for BTC as not may altcoins have all components required to calculate it
