The average 7-day moving crypto market sentiment is almost unchanged this week and remains close to the somewhat positive zone, according to data by crypto market sentiment analysis firm Omenics.

This week, the average 7-day moving crypto market sentiment score for ten major cryptoassets slipped from 5.94 last Monday to 5.89 today. While most top coins did not go through a significant change in sentiment, two outliers were USD coin (USDC) and XRP. USDC market sentiment dropped by 17% and currently is on the verge of the neutral zone and leaning towards somewhat negative - the worst score amongst the ten. At the same time, XRP sentscore got trimmed by almost 5% but the asset still remains in the neutral zone at 5.3.

Speaking for top performers, polkadot (DOT) raised its market sentiment by 2%, up to a somewhat positive score of 6.4. Meanwhile, market leaders bitcoin (BTC) and ethereum (ETH) had a relatively idle week, as their sentscores remain entrenched in the somewhat positive zone with minimal change compared to the last week. The same goes for other top coins above the neutral zone - the sentiment surrounding cardano (ADA) is at 6.2, while chainlink (LINK) sits at 6.
