The Crypto Fear and Greed Index has plummeted to a worrying 28, signaling deep investor fear amid a prolonged market downturn.

This decline, reminiscent of the aftermath of the 2022 FTX (CRYPTO:FTT) exchange crash, reflects a stark shift from recent months of market optimism.

Historically, such low index levels have often preceded market recoveries, as seen following the November 2022 crash when Bitcoin rebounded significantly.

Currently trading at $57,200, Bitcoin (CRYPTO:BTC) shows signs of recovery from recent lows, suggesting a potential turnaround if historical patterns hold.

However, investor sentiment remains cautious amid ongoing volatility and economic uncertainties affecting the broader crypto landscape.
