Meaning of Hodl

It is a typo error for the word “hold” by a drunken crypto trader on BitcoinTalk Forum years ago. It quickly became crypto-talk to describe ‘holding’ your cryptocurrency coin/token for a long term (long-term trading strategy).

Instead of rapidly purchasing and selling a cryptocurrecy, HODLing is waiting for a significant increase in value before making a trade.
