  1. Bitcoin dropped sharply Wednesday, falling $500, or about 5%, in just over an hour.
  2. Other cryptocurrencies fell even more sharply, with both ether and Ripple's XRP losing about 12%.
  3. There does not appear to be a clear catalyst for the sell-off.

Don't tell this to the "hodlers". For them, any move down is "fud" moved by "whales" who want to steal their Unicorn ICO.

Crypto traders have their own lingo. FUD is fear, uncertainty and doubt.

Another expression they use is "To the Moon!"

Weirdos.
What does whale and unicorn mean? And I presume you meant to spell it 'hodlers', I thought you had mispelt the word 'holders'.

Feels like this needs a meme.

a old stock-trader strategy is BUY and HOLD, for crypto-traders you can translate it into BUY and HOPE
