Key Points / HODL (HODLing)

  1. In crypto jargon, we say hodl instead of “hold”, as in “hold crypto”.

  2. The term “hodl” is not an acronym but a drunk misspelling of “hold”.

Original HODL Post

Hodl is a misspelling of “hold” that comes from a now legendary bitcointalk.org post made in 2013 by a drunk OP.

In the hodl’s original post (below), OP is lamenting he did not sell his BTC before a price decline to rebuy at the bottom. He explains he’s not a good trader and therefore makes a public commitment to hodling.

Hodl therefore does not stand for ‘hold on for dear life’, but the idea is pretty similar to that.
