Half of the coins have seen their scores rise over the past week. Still, many that have been residing within the positive zone have seen a slight drop in their scores, while litecoin (LTC) is out of that group this Monday, now standing at the border of the positive zone. Other major coins, like bitcoin (BTC) and ethereum (ETH) also went down a bit, but still boasting the highest scores among the ten. And though binance coin (BNB) kept its score from last week, it was pushed to the 10th place by EOS - one of the five green coins this week.

And speaking of litecoin, it dropped the most in the course of the last seven days - 2.5%. On the opposite end stands EOS, the sentscore of which increased the most - 3.6%.

Lastly, when looking at the 29 coins outside the top 10 list in the past week, which are also tracked by Omenics, we find that most of them had a rise in their respective scores. Six are in the positive zone, and only one has a score below 5 - this being ethereum classic (ETC), which recently experienced another 51% attack. Nonetheless, even ETC corrected upwards nearly 11% to reach its neutral sentscore of 4.5.
