Fear Uncertainty Doubt
Spreading negative sentiment towards the future of a coin, sometimes with reason, sometimes without
A feeling often widespread during bear markets and price crashes. Information which is negative towards cryptocurrency in general, or towards specific coins – especially when about future prices – is an instance of FUD.
The spread of FUD is sometimes coordinated and aligned with a groups agenda. One good way to attack a project is to spread false, misleading or exaggerated news about your rivals on social media. As such, the intent of each source should always be taken into consideration.
