The notion of taking a position against the market can oftentimes be rewarding. Warren Buffett says that it is wise to be fearful when others are greedy and greedy while others are fearful.
With the current state of the market and the index, it would be wise to take advantage of the situation and buy as much Bitcoin one can afford. The fear that has taken the whole world into grip is here to stay for a bit on the crypto sentiment charts as well.
As it is the first time in human history that there is a lockdown all across the globe. The whole world is going through an economic and health crisis. Times like these crash the economy, so it’s better to be cautious while considering any sort of investment.
