In addition to our indicators, the Decryptz platform provides analytical charting tools, real time fair value indicators, trending news, trading and event detection alerts, exchange-integrated trading functionality and a host of other features.

Decryptz is the most comprehensive set of analytical and research tools available to cryptocurrency investors in the world.

History

PsychSignal (the parent of Decryptz) was founded in 2011. The initial objective was to create a sentiment engine that would make predictions about the mood of the general public. This objective was achieved in 2012 when the engine correctly predicted the Gallup US Mood Index one day in advance.

Over the following years, the company developed very sophisticated natural language processing algorithms and social sentiment indices focused on the financial markets. PsychSignal has a diverse range of institutional clients that use its data to trade equities, ETFs and other publicly traded securities.

During 2017, PsychSignal began to explore how its social data analysis technology could be applied to cryptocurrencies. In July 2017, the company created a partnership with Pantera Capital to build a social data analysis engine for cryptocurrencies.
