? Have we dipped low enough where there's "blood in the streets?" According to crowd sentiment, there's quite a bit of #FUD & #bearishness for $BTC, $ETH, $BNB, $SOL, & $ADA. As illustrated by this chart, negativity correlates most commonly with bounces. https://t.co/mndr94gDJg pic.twitter.com/BNasCuulTV— Santiment (@santimentfeed) January 8, 2022
All these top cryptocurrencies have experienced significant losses, following the recent Bitcoin's drop by over eight percent from the $46,500 level to the $42,000 area. Ethereum followed BTC, going below $3,200.
As of this writing, the flagship crypto is changing hands at $41,983, Ethereum is sitting at $3,230. After the $569 high reached by BNB on December 27, now this coin is trading at $457. SOL reached $203 on December 27 but by now have declined over fifty percent to the $146 mark.

Meanwhile, Bitcoin Fear and Greed Index shows 10, indicating “extreme fear” in the crypto market. According to the popular Chinese crypto journalist Colin Wu, this is the lowest since July 21 last year.
However, many consider this to be a good opportunity to buy the dip.
U.Today reminds the crypto community that they should do their own research in the crypto space. Crypto prices can show extreme volatility, so one must not spend on them more than one can afford to lose.
