Due to the significant expansion in the field of social media, sentiment analysis is playing an increasingly important role in the technical world. Sentiment analysis is motivated by the fact that social media platforms such as Twitter provide a wonderful forum for the general public to voice their opinions about a product or an event. Such viewpoints allow academics to work on data mining based on public reviews and opinions, and they provide crucial insights that aid corporations in making better decisions. Also, cryptocurrencies have grown in popularity in recent years and are now accepted in nearly all nations. The derivation of emotion score, which specifies the intensity of each tweet containing the words ”bitcoin” and ”BTC,” is discussed in this study. The sentiment analysis is performed on the twitter data using the python module vaderSentiment. Using the cross-correlation statistical techniques Spearman Correlation, Pearson Correlation, and Kendall Correlation, the relationship between the derived sentiment scores and the bitcoin time series data was determined. The LSTM model with two optimizers, Rmsprop and Adam, is used to predict the closing price of bitcoin. This would assist investors in
understanding current public views around the world, and the bitcoin price would be affected as a result.
