2018 “Black Monday”n
February 5 is undoubtedly the “Black Monday” in 2018, losing billions of dollars on that day for global stocks and the entire digital currency ecosystem. The Dow Jones Industrial Average and most of the world’s stock plunged at 2:40 p.m. EDT on February 5, more than the 2008 economic crisis.

Although the mainstream media did not immediately siphon the stock market, it is important to note that the loss of the Dow Jones index during this one trading day surpassed that of the entire cryptocurrency market since 2018.n
