This could mean there could be possibility of further price reduction in future if the FUD continues. “The majority of crypto assets are seeing major negativity from the trading community right now. But keep your eye on $BTC, $BNB, $DOGE, and $LINK. These top caps are showing particularly high levels of #FUD that can lead to eventual breakouts.”
