Cryptocurrencies are in a very difficult territory where no fundamental or technical indicators is actually affecting the price than the sentiment of the community. Every news article or a social mention is actually driving the trend and direction of where the prices are heading. Although most of the sentiment is derived from the sentiment of the Bitcoin- the largest cryptocurrency, still some altcoins have their specific pros and cons that change their variance from that of Bitcoin. Let’s look at the few indicators that are used widely across to determine the sentiment.
Bitcoin Sentimental Analysis
As mentioned it’s the largest coin in the market that decides most of the trend for the crypto markets is necessary to understand that sentiment it garners among the community. A lot of news flow and sell off has dampened the short term sentiment but yes there are some long-term positives which make Bitcoin an interesting study. An analysis of its social mention and greed and fear index would give us a clear idea of what is happening
|Analysis Type||Tool||Analysis- Score||Sentiment|
|#BTC – Hashtag Analysis||Keyhole||Score: 87
|Neutral moving to Positives|
|#BTC- Social Media Mentions||Social Mention||Sentiment 7:1 in favor of positives
With 81 scores towards neutral and 13 in favor of Positives
|Fear to Greed Index||Alternative.me||Score 56–Greed||Positive|
|Fear to Greed Index||CNN Money||Score 49 -Neutral||Neutral|
Bitcoin has stuck over USD 4000 and that is what is keeping the sentiment from neutral to positive. The Greed and Fear Index is also towards greed side signifying there could be further upside to this rally. While the rally may continue, caution too would slowly creep in as the coin moves toward the upside of the range. Still, it looks like bulls may have more fun on the street.
Altcoin Sentimental Analysis
Fear and Greed index is only available for BTC as not may altcoins have all components required to calculate it

All altcoins seem to be falling the Bitcoin sentiment and moving on the positive side. There are some indications that we could see some price rise and Alt season may last a little longer. Unless some major setback is seen in any of the coins, the sluggish in the altcoins could subside in coming days
