San Francisco-based Predicoin has opened its crypto sentiment analysis platform to the public in a bid to provide traders with an early heads-up on market-moving trending topics. Currently, in the open beta phase, the platform uses AI to pull in data from Medium, Twitter, Reddit, Facebook, Youtube, and Telegram to aid with trend detection and sentiment analysis.
Predicoin not only leverages AI to analyze news and social media content but also provides users with a set of indicators to do their due diligence, identify influential themes to develop actionable strategies or keep track of specific cryptocurrencies.
Social media channels are often the greatest place for conversations around cryptocurrency due to a large number of crypto accounts, news, and opinion generated by influencers of this space.
