Furthermore, ABC Digital mentioned that BTS manipulation strategy was to ‘sell cheap and buy in bulk’. According to the media, BTS put only a 69-cent price for their newly released song, Butter, which then followed by the premeditated maneuver of ARMY fans to acquire the song repeatedly. That is why BTS statistics managed to increase significantly in a short time.
