As Reuters reports, this analysis will be introduced in the form of the new version of MarketPsych indexes, upon which Thomson Reuters is currently working with the research company MarketPsych Data.

At the same time, Matt Hougan, the vice-president on R&D of Bitwise Asset Management, stated that Bitcoin and the cryptocurrency market are the possibilities on trillions of dollars.
