Just like last week, only one coin out of the ten is in the red, but this time it's tether (USDT), which dropped 3.5% - enough to push it out of the newly gained positive zone and back just below the lower line.

The other nine coins are all green, and noticeably, bitcoin (BTC) reclaimed its long-held spot as the coin with the highest sentscore on the list, pushing ethereum (ETH) back to the second place. That said, both have scores above 7.

Additionally, bitcoin has the second-highest increase in the past seven days, of 12%, while its preceded by polkadot (DOT)'s 14% and followed by cardano (ADA)'s 9%. Ethereum's sentscore increased the least, recording 1.4%.

Besides BTC and ETH, five other coins are also in the positive zone, these being DOT, ADA, uniswap (UNI), litecoin (LTC), and chainlink (LINK), respectively.

Binance Coin (BNB), XRP, and USDT, are all just at the verge of the positive zone, with a score of 5.9 each.

Zooming into the last 24 hours, we find quite a green field. Not only is the sentscore once again higher than it was last Monday - 6.43 compared to 6.38 - but all 10 coins are in the positive zone. Bitcoin leads with 7.6, while ethereum's drop resulted in a score of 6.9. Other coins have sentscores between XRP's 6 and DOT's 6.5. That said, only four coins' scores actually increased in the past day, despite their high numbers. LINK, ADA, DOT, and LTC are up between 4% and 1%, rescpectively. BTC is unchanged, while the remaining five's scores fell between 4% (ETH) and 1% (XRP).

Zooming back out into the 7-day period, but this time observing the 22 coins outside the top 10 list, also rated by Omenics, we find that the sentscores of only two are down, and by small percentages: monero (XMR) with -2% and compound (COMP) with -0.5%. OMG network (OMG) saw the highest increase in its sentscore of 20%, closely followed by REN's 19%. The smallest rise is AAVE's 3%. Meanwhile, thirteen coins are now in the positive zone, up from seven last week, with cosmos (ATOM)'s 6.8 leading the list. All other coins currently sit in the 5.4-5.9 range.
