Nevertheless, nothing seems to be able to give the markets the lift they need right now, there have been no hacks or negative news inciting the dive. However, there are also other circulating rumors that this event is just a simple pump and dump scenario.

Furthermore, FOMO is one of the most common reactions in this kind of correction in the crypto world. For this reason, many traders are confused whether this scenario is just a correction or a bloodbath crypto market. However, one thing is for sure, the crypto market will remain strong and stable despite the market swings of the network.
