Sentimental Analysis for Cryptocurrencies – December 30

  • admin

Cryptocurrencies, currently are in a very difficult territory where no fundamental or technical indicators are actually affecting the prices but the sentiments of the community. Every news article or a social mention is driving the trend and direction of where the prices are heading to. Majority of this drive is from the sentiments of 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 a few indicators that are used widely to determine the sentiment.

Bitcoin Sentimental Analysis

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