An acronym for “fear, uncertainty, and doubt.” It’s the slang used by the NFT community to describe the spread of false information to raise investors’ fear of the outcome of their investment decision. FUD typically results from irregularities in a project value, not limited to a perceived rug or pump and dump.
- “Don’t spread FUD, allow people their peace.”
- “Spreading FUD is normal, but don’t let it take a toll on you.”
- “Their FUD played out true and now it looks like they’re NGMI.”
