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-rsquo;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

As Bitcoin is now below USD 4000 and hovers close to USD 3600, the fear on the street is still consistent. The two fear and greed index still show pretty high fear levels. But the other two social media analysis indicators show a rise in neutrality stating that the street is pretty much undecided where the coin would be heading to.

Altcoin Sentimental Analysis
