Bitcoin has taken a beating over the course of the last year due to a tight correlation with tech stocks, soaring inflation, and rising Fed interest rates. The Crypto Fear & Greed Index has reached extreme fear and sentiment is the most bearish in recent memory.

Although the outlook is bleak, some of the most well-known and successful investors ever advocate buying when others are in fear. Is now that time?
