Cryptocurrency being less talked about in social media, according to GlobalData

The volume of discussions about cryptocurrency led by social media influencers (on Twitter and Reddit) fell by more than 25% in Q2 2022 (April-June) compared to the previous quarter, reveals data analytics company GlobalData.

Global cryptocurrency market has been hit by several factors such as an increase in interest rates, surging inflation, and heightened recession fears, forcing investors to stay away from riskier assets earlier this year, according to GlobalData.

“Most of the cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin and Ethereum, have incurred consecutive losses in their market price due to macroeconomic factors, including the mounting pressure of the recession. Several Twitter influencers expect the bear market for crypto assets to continue as the multi-trillion-dollar crypto bubble is imploding,” comments GlobalData social media analyst Smitarani Tripathy.

On the contrary, a sharp recovery in influencers’ sentiment was noticed in the third week of June with a marginal recovery in crypto prices. Some influencers suggest investors to remain bullish on cryptocurrencies as they expect the market to recover in the near term.

GlobalData’s social media analytics platform rounds up the most popular influencer opinions:

Europac chief economist and global strategist Peter Schiff
“Long-term Bitcoin #HOLDers aren’t worried as they’ve been through 73% declines before. But previous declines didn’t involve anywhere near the total market cap lost during this decline, nor did they involve massive leverage. This crash is just beginning. #Bitcoin will not recover.”

OptionsHawk founder Joe Kunkle
“Wait..there appears to be a large contingent of people that don’t realise crypto is worthless and was just a fun bubble trade.”

TradingWithCody hedge fund manager Cody Willard
“I’ve been saying for the last year or two that 99.99% of the 19,000+ cryptocurrency tokens out there are silly, stupid or fraudulent and are headed to $0. The Great Crypto Bubble is itself starting to unwind. The Luna Terra UST stable coin Algo silliness… 1/”

Crypto Analyst Il Capo
Il Capo of Crypto, Crypto Analyst:
“I’ve been checking dozens of charts and all I see is bearish retests/liquidity take. Confluence for the bearish main targets is insane, and that would be 40-60% down for altcoins. Hidden bearish divergences everywhere on htf. No reasons to be bullish yet.”

Roubini Macro Associates CEO Nouriel Roubini
“Bitcoin now below 19k, a 72% crash from its all-time high in November 2021. 1000s of other shitcoins have lost 99% of their value and disappeared. And even the other Top 10 ‘cryptocurrencies’ have lost 80-90% of their value from their ATH. This Ponzi house of cards is collapsing.”

WazirX founder Nischal Shetty
“Bull market pushes your confidence through the roof Bear market pulls your confidence down to the ground Once you go through both, your confidence will find its middle ground That’s the right place to be If this is your first bear, stay strong. #Crypto #Cryptocurrency”

Crypto advisor Quinten Francois
“While the world is laughing at us for being ‘wrong’, we stack more #Bitcoin and are cheering at these opportunities.”

INX chief business officer Douglas Borthwick
“I think we can all acknowledge that when things happen in #Crypto they happen quickly. Whether a new innovation or a dramatic implosion. This makes me believe that we won’t see a #cryptowinter but rather we will see a significant move higher once forced selling ends.”
