The SCIENTIST and the deep Seas of Data

Analyzing big data

CryptoCaptain retrieves and processes massive amounts of cryptocurrency-related articles and postings on an ongoing basis. Related to our research we have found that many online articles are poorly written, computer written, copied from another source or the author is not knowledgeable on the matter. This leads to biases in the final market evaluation. To avoid such biases we carefully choose our sources. That is, sources must be reliable and with a broad reach. Sources must also present market analyses, predictions, and opinions in the investing community. To improve the robustness of our investment strategies we also make sure that articles have been written by a human. Furthermore, we remove information not related to articles such as ads, disclaimers, references to other articles, etc.

Using sentiment to time the market

To measure investors’ sentiment about the market, we employ state of the art algorithms for machine learning, information extraction, information aggregation, text classification, and custom natural language processing. With these algorithms, we can extract, just like humans, predictive information from the retrieved articles and posts. The algorithms that we use today were constantly refined and improved throughout our years of research. They can accurately determine the topics discussed in an article as well as authors’ opinion, which can reveal information about where the market is heading.
