(Bloomberg) -- Listen to Bloomberg Crypto on the iHeartRadio App, Apple Podcasts or Spotify.
Financial markets can be subject to a fair amount of groupthink. The herd effect. Mob mentality, even. [There’s actually some really interesting research into this: check out for example the paper, “Bubbles, Human Judgment, and Expert Opinion” by Robert J. Shiller]Crypto investors are no exception: and their in-group behavior also features a lot of catchphrases.
