since @evaristoc is still MIA, is there anyone else around who is into that NLP thing? I'd prefer to work in Python but can be flexible....

@becausealice2 well, it's a new job that i've got to do to be able to find and analyze bitcoin price prediction algorithms, that's why i was asking

@MahmoudElsayad Like I said, 70% isn't bad. Not ideal, but in my work the really good algorithms average 60-65%
so I can't feel bad for you lol
There may be outside forces (like the ones I mentioned half as a joke, price of tinfoil or the weather in barbados) that influence the price of cryptocurrencies, but the amount of labor and severity of headaches trying to find them are not likely worth a 20% boost in accuracy. That's just how I feel though

@becausealice2 I agree lol, i will be try looking at various timeseries based Algorithms and hope i can find a better accuracy, and make sure you enjoy at the conference :smile:

The conference has been fantastic! I talked to Julia Silge and she was able to answer all my questions (so far) and I even got some stickers from her :heart_eyes:
