FUD or Fear Uncertainty and Doubt is a term that exists within crypto but also in other areas like sales, marketing, PR, etc. It essentially is a strategy mean to influence others to become conflicted and unsure about themselves and their investments.
This strategy is used to try and encourage people to sell their cryptocurrencies at a lower price.
The information spread through FUD is often dubious at best or in most cases false.
