The researchers who wrote Correlating S&P 500 stocks with Twitter data found that there is a relationship between tweets and the value of S&P500 stock indicators.
Dogecoin just blew up. People must be googling Dogecoin. People must google Bitcoin before they buy it. Is there a relationship between searches for cryptocurrency and the price?
What it does
The python script determines the correlation of searches and value of cryptocurrencies
How we built it
- Google Colab Notebook
- Linear Regression
Challenges we ran into
- Fitting the data
Accomplishments that we're proud of
- The fact that it runs
- The fact that my prediction 2 weeks ago that Dogecoin will go down was right
What we learned
I learned to always believe in myself and that 3 AM is not too late to be coding.
What's next for this project
Will we ever actually transact using cryptocurrency?
