The DeFi-induced bullrun has arguably pushed the crypto market upwards the past week, with Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other major cryptocurrencies giving gains of over 10-15 percent to investors.
Data feeds from one quantitative on-chain data provider prove the above, with sentiment metrics, in particular, paving the path for even higher prices.Bitcoin public sentiment increases
Data on The TIE — a provider of alternative data for digital assets that quantifies investor perceptions on hundreds of digital assets — shows Bitcoin is showing bullish action in both short- and mid-term trades.

Sentiment remained stable even when Bitcoin suffered the infamous “Black Thursday” event in March when prices fell by over 45 percent over two trading sessions. However, public perception stably grew since, with prices catching on to reflect the metric.

Meanwhile, another chart shows the Twitter-verse is starting to be less concerned about Bitcoin’s price. Tweet dominance is just 42 percent even as prices go up. This can be attributed to the rise of Ethereum, DeFi, and DEX-based altcoins in recent weeks — with the trio featuring massive retail interest after some tokens surged 1000x in a few days.Bitcoin Tweet Dominance (Source: The TIE) U.S. high-income earners pile into crypto
