FUD is an acronym for Fear, Uncertainly, Doubt.
It’s pronounced like the world “mud”.
FUD is a label given to negative news, market analysis, and opinions about anything related to cryptocurrencies.
FUD is often misleading, overexaggerated, and inaccurate in the information it presents.
Many parties interested and invested in the cryptocurrency markets generally, or in specific projects, believe that FUD is purposefully manipulated to be released to the public at specific times or during specific market conditions, in hopes of driving down market and asset prices.
FUD, because of the speed and distance at which it can spread globally, can push prices down if the negative information is believed or acted on.
