Blockchain-based New Zealand-based research firm Brave New Coin (BNC) has unveiled a new system for measuring the mood of the Bitcoin community based on Twitter messages.

According to BNC, the new Twitter Sentiment rating system analyzes over 34 million BTC-related Twitter posts each week. The company uses artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms that look for records containing the words bitcoin, $ BTC and BTC and others.

BNC notes that user sentiment continues to be a “significant” factor in the price and dynamics of digital assets, and a new technique has been developed to track these sentiments. According to the BNC, it took 18 months to launch the Bitcoin Twitter Sentiment. The data obtained is divided into seven categories - Opinion, Technical Information, Inside the Network, Advertising, Bots, Macros and Hacking.

For the week ending January 17, the most common entries were in the Opinion category - their number was 30.42% of all data received. In second place was the category Technical Information, and in third inside the network (includes information on mining and hashrate).

BNC spokeswoman Pierre Ansaldi said that during the first quarter of this year, the company will also launch community sentiment analysis tools for other crypto assets.
