What is FUD or Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt?
FUD is the abbreviation for Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt, and the term might be used in the crypto community or general investment contexts. The term was popularized with the growth of crypto markets and communities. FUD is commonly used to indicate a spread of misinformation about a specific cryptocurrency or other investment assets, usually through social media.
FUD can cause a decrease in the price of a coin due to non-confirmed or bad news or when an influential entity gives statements related to a specific cryptocurrency. It is also used as a psychological trick to depreciate the price of cryptocurrencies by investors and traders who want to buy them at a much lower price.
