Sentimental Analysis for Cryptocurrencies: Positive Rising for Bitcoin

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.

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.

Well, Bitcoin has been in touching distance of USD 4000 after a long time, in fact, it has spiked a couple of times over USD 4000 on some exchanges across the globe. Clearly looks like the bulls have got the sentiment positive. There is still neutrality in some indicators as people are getting cautious that there could bear coming to draw the markets downs. If the coin moves and stays above USD 4000 there could be a sought of further positive momentum.
