“Hodl” is a slang term used in the cryptocurrency community (more specifically, the Bitcoin community) to describe the notion of holding on to Bitcoin, rather than selling it, despite ongoing price fluctuations. The term originated with a post to the bitcointalk forum in 2013 when a user announced “I AM HODLING”, instead of “I AM HOLDING”. The term “hodl” was then utilized in numerous memes.
