$BTC Correction Sees Fear Levels Rise 🐻

Volatility is the unique characteristic of the crypto markets which brings the market to life and once again we have seen the extent to which crypto can rise but also correct.

For those who may be new to crypto this may seem like a complete capitulation however when put into perspective, $BTC was around $28k 6 months ago.

Like any other market, the participants are human (hopefully) meaning emotion plays a big part in what is occurring in the market.
