Bitcoin’s Sentiment Score Post-Halving Rises to Highest Since 2017
One week after the Bitcoin rewards halving, investors are speaking more positively about the coin than they have at any point over the last 2.5 years according to crypto data company The TIE.
Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Joshua Frank spoke to Cointelegraph on May 18, saying the 30-day average daily sentiment score — the number of positive reviews in relation to the number of negative reviews — of Bitcoin (BTC) is the highest the company has ever recorded.

In addition, 30-day average tweet volumes for BTC were also at an all-time high for 2020. On May 17, there were 31,111 tweets about the cryptocurrency with words including “Bitcoin”, “gold”, “trading”, and “halving”. Even author JK Rowling and tech mogul Elon Musk were high in the rankings, due to Rowling’s May 15 Bitcoin inquiry on Twitter and Musk’s response.
Bitcoin mentions driving price up?
Frank said this data made the market look “extremely bullish about Bitcoin”, with the overwhelming majority of words used by investors on Twitter on May 18 as positive. Even pre-halving, The TIE found a “moderately strong and positive” correlation between mentions of Bitcoin’s halving and the asset’s price.
According to The TIE, “while the Halving remains a positive point of conversation for BTC, the digital gold narrative is reemerging as the dominant narrative for the coin during this time of extreme economic uncertainty.”

In the event of approvalThe firm notes that, if the regulator deems the filing effective, the structure of the trust will remain the same and it will not be added to a national securities exchange. However, there will be some changes to Grayscale’s scope and operations.Should the SEC accept Grayscale’s filing, it would designate the fund as an SEC reporting company and obligate it to register its shares under the Exchange Act. Furthermore, as many institutions block investors from considering trusts based on SEC-approval, Grayscale’s eligible investor audience could widen. The SEC’s auditing standards would also be applied to Grayscale.The firm also noted that accredited investors will benefit if the filing is approved:“Accredited investors who have previously purchased shares in the Trust’s…Nov 19, 2019

Binance Research dove into Libra’s most recent whitepaper, surfacing with a lenghty report, in part claiming Facebook’s proposed asset could significantly alter the payments world.“Libra’s envisioned global payment system could do to the payment industry what SpaceX did to the space industry: shake the foundations of a well-established sector with high entry barriers,” the April 22 report said, adding:“The mere advantage of issuing widely-available programmable money would already initiate manifold efficiency gains.”Libra’s outlook after a year of regulatory pushbackAfter releasing its initial whitepaper in June 2019, regulating bodies quickly flooded in, putting a halt on the project while conducting a number of court hearings.
