After weeks of inching towards it, crypto market sentiment has finally entered the positive zone once again. The average 7-day moving crypto market sentiment score (sentscore) for ten major coins is now 6.08, up from 5.94 today where we saw it last week, according to the market sentiment analysis service Omenics.
As last week, six coins are in the positive zone. From the highest to the lowest positive score, these are: bitcoin (BTC), ethereum (ETH), polkadot (DOT), chainlink (LINK), cardano (ADA), and uniswap (UNI).
And while binance coin (BNB), XRP, and tether (USDT) sit within the 5.4-5.9 range, USD coin (USDC) is the only one that still remains below the score of 5.
That said, it too is up this week, and by the second-highest percentage on the list, of 6.7%. The first is BNB with 7.2%, making it this week’s winner. Other green coins are up between 0.2% (BTC) and 5.6% (DOT).
Meanwhile, only two coins are red, and my smaller percentages as well: USDT is down by 1.1% and UNI by 0.3%.
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 zone.

And we find an even greener situation in the last day. The combined 24-hour sentscore for these top ten coins is now 6.22, compared to last Monday’s 5.99. However, there is significant red to be seen too – namely, when it comes to the individual sentscores. All but two coins are down today. Interestingly, USDC is the day’s winner, seeing its score rise 4.1%, and finally above the score of 5. USDT’s score also went up, by 0.7%. Meanwhile, the highest drop has so far been recorded by BNB, with -5.2%, and the smallest by XRP, with -0.2%. No coin is below the grade of 5 any longer, with four now standing between 5.2 (USDC) and 5.9 (USDT). The six remaining scores are all in the positive zone.
Daily Bitcoin sentscore change in the past month:
Looking at the weekly performance of the 25 coins besides the top 10 list, we see that only 10 are down over the past week. The highest drop is monero (XMR)’s 4.5%, while the lowest is maker (MKR)’s 0.3%. As for the rises, they range between tezos (XTZ)’s 8.3% and ontology (ONT)’s 0.4%. Meanwhile, ten of these coins are in the positive zone, with the highest sentscore being 6.5 by AAVE and algorand (ALGO). And while the majority is in the 5.1-5.9 range, four coins are just below the score of 5.
