The top cryptocurrency - bitcoin (BTC), remains the only coin with a very positive market sentiment score of 7.7. It is followed by ethereum (ETH), which remains positive with a score of 7. Tether’s (USDT) market sentiment plunged by over 15% - from 5.4 to 4.5, as it is the only large-cap coin nearing a somewhat negative sentiment zone. All other top 10 coins score a somewhat positive score above 6, except for binance coin (BNB), which remains in a neutral zone despite having an amazing week in terms of price appreciation.
