Crypto Market Sentiment Unchanged in 7 Days, Drops in a Day
Following the last week's large drop, crypto market sentiment score (sentscore) barely moved over the course of the past seven days. The combined moving 7-day average sentscore for the top 10 coins slipped from 4.97 reported last week to 4.92/10 this time around, according to crypto market sentiment analysis tool Omenics.
Unlike the previous two weeks, however, these past seven days have seen a few coins going green. Five out of the ten coins have had a rise in their respective sentscores, between 0.8% and 6.5%. We still see only Bitcoin (BTC) in the positive zone, with its score going from 6.1 to 6.3, it being one of the coins to see a rise this week. Meanwhile, Ethereum (ETH) and Cardano (ADA) are still the only two coins in the 5-5.9 range, while one coin slipped into the negative zone this week: EOS.
Zooming into the last 24 hours only, the combined average sentscore for the top 10 coins is down to 4.51 from last Monday's 4.97. While Tether (USDT) and Cardano are green, Cardano has a higher score than Ethereum, and the two are joined by Bitcoin in the neutral zone with the score of 5.6. EOS got companions in the negative zone too: XRP and Bitcoin Cash (BCH).
Sentiment change among the top 10 coins*:
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
The week's winners are Litecoin (LTC) with a rise in its sentscore of 6.5%, followed by Bitcoin's 3.6%. It's been a while since we saw either of these in the winning (or losing) category. Bitcoin has a rarely seen high score of 9.6/10 in fundamentals, followed by 6.1 in news. Its social and technicals got 4.9 each, but its buzz has only 3.3. LTC has a positive score of 7 in news, the neutral 5.8 in social and 4.3 in fundamentals, as well as the negative 3.1 in buzz and 2.7 in technicals.

The two coins whose scores dropped the most are EOS and XRP, with -9.4% and -8.6%, respectively. EOS has got 5.7 in news, 4.3 in social and buzz each, as well as 2.7 in fundamentals, and 2.6 in technicals.
