Sentiment Analysis

How it works

The sentiment of a news post is determined by a machine learning engine. When the website aggregates news from a website (e.g. DailyCryptocurrency) it captures all the news titles and classifies them as either positive, neutral, or negative (based on previous training). The engine is specifically trained on Litecoin and cryptocurrency news.

Sentiment is currently only shown when you opted in (at the bottom of this page), this is because the engine isn't too clever yet. The engine is being trained as news comes in so it will become smarter over time. In the future sentiment will be shown by default.

Current engine knowledge
Positive titles 497 38.7%
Neutral titles 562 43.7%
Negative titles 226 17.6%

Below you can find some examples of titles and their sentiment. Please keep in mind the statistics above, and the fact that the engine is like a baby—some labels may be incorrect. You can refresh the page to get different titles.
