Who is Crypto-Qual
Crypto-Qual is a behavioral-economics-based research agency that applies mixed methods (quantitative and qualitative) to forecast cryptocurrency value.
We have built a platform to democratize market insights and strategically predict actual future behavior, what we’re calling a crypto-value index (CVI).
We apply a wide range of powerful research methods to study consumer perception, preference, and choice to gain insight into crypto performance. We analyze adoption, sentiment, intent to purchase, and other variables from a curated audience panel of real crypto users. Cryptocurrency use is an ideal behavior to analyze through behavioral economics, and we share our findings with everyone who participates in our survey panel.
Our research is extensively human-centric. People are much better at synthesizing and interpreting public discourse than algorithms. And when the right questions are asked, we are also exceptionally good at estimating trends. Our methodology enables us to capture each participant’s unbiased individual experiences, perceptions, thoughts, attitudes, beliefs, opinions, and insights, which we aggregate and analyze in a sort of crowd-sourced forecast that is highly predictive of future crypto value.
We Are More Than Sentiment Analysis
While potentially valuable, sentiment analysis has many problems. If you’ve ever used sentiment analysis, you know just how expensive it is and how challenging it can be to extract a reliable amount of value from it.
To put it simply, social media is an echo chamber, and social-based sentiment analysis captures all the reverb.
The problems with sentiment analysis are tied to the data source used as an input. There are many factors that dilute the truth on the internet. Bot networks, trolls, sarcasm, and bad actors on social media all erode the validity and reliability of social sentiment analysis. To put it simply, social media is an echo chamber, and social-based sentiment captures all the reverb.
Conversely, sentiment analysis based on text mined from websites and news sources offers insight into the past, not the future, and many sites offering forecasts and analyses are still largely based on opinion rather than technical analysis. Paid advertisements, amplified voices, and noise also threaten the validity and reliability of the results.
Crypto-Qual’s insights are based on a robust, systematic approach. Our results provide highly predictive future valuations from real crypto users, not pundits. We leverage the most bleeding-edge methodology from behavioral economics to cut through the noise and capture real investors’ actual future behavior, not just their attitudes or intentions. Our data are proof, and we are sharing our findings with everyone who participates in our research panel.
We Are Just Getting Started
We are just getting started. We were originally planning to announce this project at the end of Summer 2020, but we are fortunately ahead of schedule. Also, we believe that our work will be especially meaningful to anyone who finds themselves lost in how to cope with the current economic turmoil that has truly hurt so many of those in the crypto-user community. You have our sympathy and our support, and soon you will have our results to help you navigate the challenges that lie ahead.
