The TIE Sentiment APIs

Sentiment Analytics for Digital Assets

Sentiment is the leading indicator of cryptocurrency price movement and The TIE is at the forefront of analyzing investor emotions. Our APIs quantify investor sentiment to generate actionable data that drives alpha.

Summary

In exclusive partnership with Social Market Analytics (SMA), The TIE has developed a comprehensive set of cryptocurrency sentiment metrics that drive alpha. The TIE's APIs are powered by SMA’s proprietary sentiment engine used by the top quantitative hedge funds and leading financial firms across traditional asset classes.

Our four distinct sentiment APIs for digital assets are built on the same technology that has been developed over the last eight years and have been refined to service digital asset investors.
