Crypto Market Sentiment Lower Still; BTC and TRX Out of Positive Zone
The high scores didn’t last long. Observing the 7-day moving average, the combined market sentiment measure, Sentscore for the top 10 coins by market capitalization dropped again, for the second week in a row, from 5.5/10 we’ve seen last Monday, to 5.17 today, according to Omenics, a crypto market sentiment analysis service. Hence, it’s inching closer to the 4-5 range, last seen three weeks ago.
After two weeks of staying in the green, positive zone, Bitcoin (BTC) and Tron (TRX) are back into the neutral zone. Bitcoin dropped from 6.5 to 5.8 weekly average score, while today’s Sentscore is 5.3. Tron went from 6 to 5.4 weekly scores, but there’s an even larger difference when we compare that to its today’s Sentscore of only 4.4.
Sentiment change among the top 10 coins*:
Interpreting the Sentscore’s scale:
- 0 to 2.5: very negative
- 2 to 4: somewhat negative zone
- 4 to 6: neutral zone
