Probably one of the most used terms in the crypto world. It all started in a golden message on Bitcointalk. A misspelled word in the title, by a drunk bitcoin investor, where actually ‘Hold’ should have been mentioned. The term is meant to represent the ‘long and hold’ (long term) strategy when investing in crypto. Meanwhile HODL has been renamed to ‘Hold on for dear life’, which is mainly used when the prices drop drastically or when ‘the blood runs through the streets (Dutch)‘.
