Fear of missing out, or FOMO, is a kind of social anxiety characterized by the desire to continuously stay connected with what others are doing. For the newbies of crypto markets, this feeling may result in ill-conceived buying. Crypto trader Michael van de Poppe is sure on when the next wave of FOMO may occur.

Mr. van de Poppe predicts that the $10,000 level for Bitcoin (BTC) will result in journalists having to write about Bitcoin. In turn, this may cause a huge FOMO reaction.
