What does HODL mean?

HODL: it is any more not a misprint, but the term which you will meet very often in the cryptomarket. This expression means “Hold On for Dear Life”. According to a legend, this term for the first time appeared in 2013 at the forum Bitcointalk.org where one not really sober guy wrote a post with title of “I AM HODLING” which he admitted that understands nothing in the auction, and everything that he is able to do – it is just to keep bitcoin in a purse.

Since then the crypto community picked up this term and began to use it in cases when the cryptocurrency has to be held, but not to sell. It is worth marking that from the moment of the term birth the course of bitcoin grew more, than six times.
