BNC launches Bitcoin ‘Twitter Sentiment’ data

With sentiment continuing to be a significant factor in the price and momentum of digital assets, Brave New Coin has launched a weekly Bitcoin ‘Twitter Sentiment’ infographic - providing at-a-glance insight into the dominant weekly narrative in Bitcoin’s Twitter-sphere.

Launching this week, the Bitcoin sentiment data is a result of 18 months of work by BNC Research. Over 34 million tweets are analysed on a weekly basis by BNC’s language detection AI algorithms which search for tweets that contain ‘#bitcoin’, ‘bitcoin’, ‘$BTC’, ‘BTC’ and a few other key phrases in the body of the tweet.
