FUD = Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt
FUD is a tactic often used by those who want to drive down the price of a cryproasset. Typically various social media sites will be used to disseminate emotionally charged negative information regarding a particular cryptocurrency, token or asset. The “information” is often presented out of context, incomplete or outright false.
For Crypto investors and traders FUD is an emotional danger that often leads to poor decision making.
The terminology in the crypto world is often cryptic (pun intended) and difficult to understand at first. Because of this I initially found the cryptocurrency world confusing and disorienting– but a few quick Google searches usually unlocked the cryptic terminology.
