ASHANTY finally responded to the issue of ASIX tokens being banned from trading, as well as complaints from netizens on Twitter who claimed that the value of ASIX Tokens had fallen by 50 percent.
Ashanty admitted that he did not want to get carried away easily in running his business. He said that this attitude of netizens is often referred to as FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt) in the business world.

"It means, we are not controlling your finances. For people who know crypto, it's easy to explain. Yes, but for those who don't know, there is indeed a little more effort to provide more knowledge," Ashanty said when met at the CoFTRA building, Senen, Central Jakarta, Friday ( 11/2/2022).
"That's why we came to Pak Tirta about Twitter yesterday. It made us a little shocked because there were a lot of people who didn't understand and were being toyed with by FUD, people who really didn't like the increase, right," he continued.
FUD is a strategy that aims to discredit the value of digital assets by spreading misinformation.
The purpose of FUD is to instill fear in the public, so that these individuals benefit from low prices.
The CEO of ASIX Token, MC Basyar, said the same thing. He admitted that he was doubtful by one of the netizens buying ASIX Token or not.
MC Basyar also considered the FUD phenomenon in the investment business to be common.
"Oh, he doesn't necessarily buy it, it's just FUD, it purposely scares people so the price goes down. When it goes down, he buys it because he has a lot of money. It's in ordinary crypto, it's called FUD, that's normal," said Mc Basyar.
Previously, the Commodity Futures Trading Regulatory Agency (CoFTRA) had announced that ASIX Token was prohibited from being traded. This was conveyed through CoFTRA's official twitter account.
The tweet also had an impact on the price of the crypto token which was founded by Anang Hermansyah, so that it fell drastically on Thursday, February 10, 2022.
