Crypto Market Sentiment Drops in 7 Days, Even Bloodier in 24 Hours
The crypto market sentiment is not having a good day, or a good week for that matter. Not only has the combined moving average 7-day market sentiment measure, sentscore, for the top 10 coins dropped from last week's 5.88 to 5.67/10 this week, as crypto market sentiment analysis service Omenics shows - but each coin also saw a significant drop in the last 24-hours, with a combined sentscore of 5.14 compared to 5.95 last Monday.
The recent market dive is being reflected in both the 7-day sentscores and the 24-hour ones. In the last week, only three coins have seen a rise in their respective scores, including Bitcoin (BTC), whose score now is 7.1. The only other coin in the positive zone is Ethereum (ETH), which fell back to 6.2. Still, the majority of the top 10 coins have scores above 5, while only EOS, which dropped the most this time around, stands at the verge with 4.9.
The 24-hour situation is even worse. All coins are in the red, and four are below the score of 5, though none are in the negative zone. Additionally, while five coins were in the positive zone last Monday, Bitcoin remains there with a score of 6.4, accompanied by Stellar (XLM) with 6/10. Most have double-digit drops, with Binance Coin (BNB) leading the pack with -16.6%, while Tezos (XTZ) is the last in line with -5.3%.
Sentiment change among the top 10 coins in the past week*:
Interpreting the sentscore’s scale:
- 0 to 2.5: very negative
- 2 to 3.9: somewhat negative zone
- 4 to 5.9: neutral zone
- 6 to 7.49: somewhat positive zone
- 7.5 to 10: very positive
Our winners for this week are the only three coins whose scores went up, even if the rise is minimal for all three. Bitcoin has high scores of 8.7, 7.5, and 6.9 in fundamentals, technicals, and news, respectively. It also has 5.2 in social and 4.3 in buzz.

Furthermore, Tezos's highest scores are 7.8 in news and 6.8 in technicals, followed by 5.1 in buzz and 5 in social, while it's lowest score is 2.8 in fundamentals.
