✔️ HODL means Hold on For Dear Life.

HODL is an abbreviation for Hold On for Dear Life. This terminology was actually made up for it later.

It so happens that in 2013, user GameKyuubi posted on the Bitcointalk forum a message with the title, "I AM HODLING." It is a very funny post, in which the writer uses rather colorful language and in which he explains that 'traders can only take your money if you sell'. In his own words, he had 'some' whiskey.
