Hi, it's the continuation of my previous topic about FUD (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3677121.msg36766385#msg36766385)

The concept of FUD came to us from politics and marketing, the abbreviation consists of three words - Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt. FUD is a tactic of psychological manipulation, consisting in giving information about something (for example, about a concrete coin or about kriptornke in general) in such a way as to sow uncertainty and doubt in its qualities among the audience and thus cause fear of it. In practice, this is usually a giant wave of negative news that captures absolutely all sources of information.

Of course, there are occasional cases of unplanned mass hysteria, but as a rule, if FUD is going on - it means that for someone it is profitable. In which cases is it profitable to use this tool?

In relation to bitcoin or crypromarket in general - for example, if you want to greatly drop the price of the Cryptocurrency and buy at the bottom. In general, "rocking the boat" and creating a strong volatility is beneficial to those who know when the next wave of negative news will hit the market. After all, you can safely clip hamsters on the stock exchange and get super profits.
In relation to the project, going to the ICO. Sometimes for a relatively short period of time ICO has several projects at once. But their management is well aware that the investment resource is limited, and investors will somehow choose. Of course, it is advantageous to remove as much as possible from the media field other start-ups, even in this way.
Now that you know what FUD is, and to whom it can be profitable - you will be more difficult to manipulate. Think critically, check all the important news and facts, never act on emotions - these are the basic rules that will help you avoid hasty decisions and protect your capital.

Can you remember the examples of FUD?

for your information FUD is briefly (Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt), FUD can also be called a doubt or fear someone on a problem or circumstance. the point is in the world of cryptocurrecy, FUD is described as a sudden sudden bearish condition and condition that usually occurs several times after hearing a negative hot potato at that moment.

In a more realistic and understable way, FUD is news or information that is capable to cause a panic or uncertainty to where the market demands can move to. That is, it can begin a reversal movement or further continuation of the wave in the market.

FUD is an acronym for fear, uncertainty and doubt. It is a marketing term that is often used to cast a shadow over a competitor's product when your own is unable to compete.

It is a strategy intended to make a company's customers insecure about future product plans with the purpose of discouraging them from adopting competitors' products. For example, "You can try using X instead of our product, but you may lose all your data."

FUD is a technique used by larger companies who have a large market share. The FUD acronym was first freely defined by Gene Amdahl after he left IBM to found his own company, Amdahl Corp, with this statement: "FUD is the fear, uncertainty, and doubt that IBM sales people instill in the minds of potential customers who might be considering Amdahl products."

In crypto, the whales with their large financial power can create an imaginary 'negative cloud' over a project, when panic sets in, the nobs sell off and the whales go to the bottom and buy off. Then create a 'positive cloud' over the project, when FOMO sets in they sell of.

So what is meant by FUD is the fear, uncertainty, and doubt that IBM sales people instill in the minds of potential customers who might consider Amdahl's products.

Damn mate this is clearly plagiarism. You should at least put your sources here.

Example of FUD? Jamie Dimon statement about bitcoin, calling it a "fraud". Warren Buffett, saying bitcoin is a "rat poison",  Bill Gates telling investing in Bitcoin is "crazy". That's some of the FUD I heard as far as I can remember.

We all know FUD is an abbreviation of Fear Uncertainty and Doubt and while
it may be created to have a negative effect on the market it also  creates more
of the same.

Some people suffer from FUD without knowing they have become subjected to it.
It is highly contagious to those who dont know how to protect themselves,
It usually affects the young and the weak and is almost like natures survival of
the fitest ir natural selection.

After infection those who survive become immune to further infections and
grow stronger and more resilient to FUD
