"Hold on for dear life." For the first time, the term HODL appeared on the BitсoinTalk forum in 2013 from the user GameKyuubi who wrote: "I AM HODLING".

From the content of the publication, it was clear that the writer was drunk and wanted to tell others what he was holding bitcoin, despite a serious fall.

Since then, this erroneous term has become very popular in the crypto community. Anyone who HODLs, hopes the coin price to increase in the long run.
