  • Don’t Get Dragged Down by Anchoring Bias. Jerry first heard about Bitcoin back in 2016 when the price was $500, however, he decided not to buy any.

Today the price of Bitcoin is $50,000 and Jerry has missed out on 2,400% returns. Jerry fell prey to anchoring bias. But how can you avoid making Jerry’s mistake? Read this article to find out.
