The recent rise and fall of Ethereum's price has prompted some investors to engage in risky behavior. Many have blindly followed the trend, buying into Ethereum after the price has risen and panic selling when the price drops. However, such actions can be dangerous and result in significant losses.

A recent example of this is a trader who purchased 7,135 ETH with 12.25 million USDC from Sept. 9 to 12, 2022, when the price of Ethereum had risen by 10%. Unfortunately, the price of Ethereum began to drop shortly after, and the trader sold all of their Ethereum on Sept. 16 in a panic, receiving only 10.51 million USDC for it. This resulted in a loss of 1.74 million USDC in just one week.

Later, the same trader bought 4,489 ETH with 7.65 million USDC on Feb. 16, when the price of Ethereum had risen by 10%. However, when the price of Ethereum dropped again, the trader sold all of their Ethereum in a panic, receiving only 7.33 million USDC back. This resulted in a loss of 324,000 USDC in just one week.

These actions resulted in the trader losing over 2 million USDC in just half a year due to blind buying and panic selling. This serves as a cautionary tale for other investors, who may be tempted to follow similar behavior.
