Crypto Market Sentiment Slightly Up in a Week, Bloody in a Day
The average 7-day moving crypto market sentiment score (sentscore) for ten major cryptoassets went up from 4.9 recorded seven days ago to 5.05 – back at the level seen two weeks ago, according to the market sentiment analysis service Omenics. Additionally, there is a single coin in the positive zone over the past week – but four in the negative zone over the past 24 hours.
Overall, the week has been green for the first 10 coins on the list, with six of them seeing a rise in their respective scores – two even double digits. These are cardano (ADA)'s 16% and tether (USDT)'s 13%, making them the week's winners. While bitcoin (BTC)'s sentscore went up almost 6% over the past seven days, followed by binance coin (BNB)'s 5%, ethereum (ETH) and polkadot (DOT) saw their scores rise 3%.
When it comes to the red coins, the highest decrease is that of crypto.com (CRO), having dropped nearly 10%. It's followed by USD coin (USDC)'s almost 7%, XRP's 3%, and cosmos (ATOM)'s also almost 3%.
That said, ATOM is the only coin in the positive zone this week, standing on the verge of it with a score of 6. The majority of other coins stand between USDC's 5 and BTC's 5.9, while XRP, CRO, and BNB sit below the score of 5 – but not dipping into the negative zone.
