Title: HODL is not advisable!
Post by: escalante28 on August 22, 2018, 02:12:35 PM
In my very own experienced there is no good outcome when you HODL too much.
First of all do you know what HODL means?
HODL is used when referring to hold the cryptocurrency rather than selling it.
Holding cryptocurrency is no good because it means you donít have a knowledge about trading, for me, you can do scalping trading and increase your holding by it and gain profit.
I suggest that all in the Crypto community must learn the basic trading fundamentals. There are free tutorials anywhere. Donít be lazy, think big.

Telling everybody that dont do trading a no good is also a no good :D

Looks like, you just entered lately in a crypto world bud

if you HODL a 10$ eth Jan 2017, say this again.. :D

easy to say huh..

forgetting something, that you could also lose your money and couldn't gain any for trading than HODL

You didn't  get my point.  Why hold  if you can make it more and more? I mean can gain more by scalping  trading if you have a basic knowledge in trading  fundamentals.  And I'm referring  the market situation right now I forgot  to specify  there.

Well you didn't  get my point. You can do more in scalping, you can increase your holdings and secure the profits.  Remember  back on 2017 there is no such thing as HODL so I am referring  to the current  situations  now.  Do you  know the basic  trading fundamentals?  If yes then I believed that you can increase  more rather than keeping your token and waiting when it will go up.  Keep in mind what basic trading fundamentals  and learn it so that you'll  get my point.

basic fundamentals trading is not a guaranteed profit

so telling people to not HODL and just trade is a lame

That is why I'd mention there that holding too much is no good. It is my opinion  sir  and that is base on my experienced.
Yes trading is doesn't  guaranteed profit but there's  a big chance to multiply  your capital.

Everybody cannot be traders. The people that trade and those that hold provide balance to the market and they have their own individual objectives that they believe that course of action is the best way to go about it. Holding is not all bad so also its not all good. I have seen people who hold for just six months and the coin turned out massive and I have equally seen same too that it worth zero having being delisted on major exchange sites over time.

Rather than discouraging holding, you should advocate the right coins to hold. Imagine everyone is dumping and no one is buying, I guess you would even left the market and the value would have dropped drastically. Basic knowledge about trading is good but it involve more than that to actually make decent returns as its not as simple as it seems.

In majority of the cases holding is a better option as you can buy during the dips . Say I bought at 6.5 k and market goes till 6k or little lower so selling in a loss would not make sense to me unless I know it would not rise or I require money. So before entering itself you should always invest money which you do not require in short term and have a patience to hold the coin.

Holding will depend on the situation. If you are trap in one coin maybe holdin is the best option for you and also if you just want to hold more good coins for your future purposes. Some people might miss the selling point for every coin because of holding, so I suggest to take profit and invest again when the price drop.

Hodl a person who doesn't have enough strength to make their own fight for investing their own money in crypto. And when the market is going low ofcourse you should hold your coins until it becomes a good price. It's not advisable but it's really depends upon the persons who wants to hodl.

Post by: Azima85 on August 22, 2018, 03:05:01 PM
You can't just say that something is better than another. Everyone has priorities and strategies. For those who can't trade it's better to hold than to lose their money. While for others, it's clearly better to trade. In short, the best option is that in which you avoid losing money.

Unfortunately not everyone wants to do trading and just prefer holding as they may be busy in real world. And even you think you're trading doesn't mean you're a real trader that really have this knowledge. And even profit will takes time in holding than trading we can be still be certain that it's worth the effort. Don't brag over your so called knowledge.

Well, not all people here are traders. There are some people who preferably hold their coins rather than holding it.

I agree that trading will give you more profit than holding but there are times that a trader must hold a coins for a mid to long time especially if they don't know how to use stop loss.

One thing more, not all traders gain profit in trading. There are some who don't want to risk their coins into trading because its either they are afraid to lose or don't know how to trade.

Can you please change your title :) I don't think that "HODL is not advisable" is a good title for your post because there are some who will advise users to hold their coin.

This is the fault of a person who's not doing his/her own research regarding the coin you are to invest to. This is not great for you to execute your trades. If the coin you're trading is sht, then TP out immediately after winning a trade. That's how it goes.

Everyone is a trader, you can trade work hours for money, you can trade products for money or you can trade assets. I don't advise trading bitcoin because its value tend to increase over time because of the economics incentives intrinsic of this technology. HODL is the best way to save your money while fiat currency loses value over time because inflation. In trade, there is a win and a looser, someone must lost assets in order to other acquire it, just remember, digital scarcity is what brings value to this market.

Why? not all coins are become badcoins,some coins are
needed to  wait a year,like bitcoin. So,much better to hodl some, let's say 70/30 u can sell 70% of your coins and hodl the 30% we don't know the coming year and the team of the project are hardly working on thier project:)

In crypto some of the best trading bots created have a tough time yielding a higher ROI than people who have just held. This is why hodling is such a popular strategy.

Secondly scalping is not the best trading strategy in these markets, I have heard this time and time again from advanced traders who also say they won't trade any chart shorter than the 4hr.

So just because you have made a couple gains scalping the 5 min chart based on a couple indicators doesn't mean you should jump on bctalk and advise other people to do the same.

I see so many newbs these days crying about how hodling is stupid just because they are holding bags and are impatient.

Everyone becomes a holder because they have no knowledge of when to sell and when to buy. Holder is a final solution to the hope that it can be profitable in the future. If everyone can know how to trade, this market will not grow

or because the person does not have time to do day trade

for me, you can do scalping trading and increase your holding by it and gain profit.

and take big risks of losing a lot of money? see people who bought bitcoin when the price was $ 900, these people still have profits and will hold for more years and will get more profits

this does not help much, I have not yet seen someone who is successful in predicting price movements

HOLD= HODL is just typically the same and most of us do really know what it means and I would to clarify something that not all hodlers doesn't have knowledge about trading. There are professionals doing such decision because they do saw the potential of the coin which means not all holding coins are totally no idea on how this market moves. You can only say such thing because you do miss out the chance on making profit when the coin you do hold up do pumped.

I think you can only make a profit when the market is bearish in the long run, you can see that bitcoin prices are fluctuating continuously and can be reduced at any time. Therefore, I believe that at this time you should not hold, you should only invest in short and day trading, hold can only bring profits as the market is rising.

Sometimes in order to recover from their losses some traders tend to hold they tokens for a very long period of time and some of them even hold it for more than a year because they just missed the right time, so that they went to hold it for a very long time and waiting for the next pump hopefully.

I think it's just a matter of patience of how a trader could exert during losses.

Trading is buy and sell strategy buy low sell high but traders sometime have to decide their coins to hold for ling term because didn't accept for theirselve the loses, that's i seen some traders hodl their coins for long term because they hope later on they cut off the loses if the price bounce again.

Don't underestimate crypto trading mate, because it's not like the usual trading. We all know how unpredictable is cryptocurrency, because of the high volatility of its market value that could be so difficult to anyone to predict of its price. And even those crypto enthusiast can't predict when it starts to rise and fall, how much more those newbies in this field?

HODL only when you bought that coin at the very bottom or dip and if you really support their project and trust the team of the project, you will really hold it because you support their project, you are expecting for long term position. That is the only good in HOLDING.


Title: Re: HODL is not advisable!
Post by: vuithoinha on August 23, 2018, 02:05:03 AM

HODL is not advisable if you are that type of investors or a trader that has a short patience. 'coz it's a common/basic knowledge that here in Cryptocurrency world that the price of every coin is up side down in every minute every second and not stable and really is unpredictable. And if you are in need of money then you should not hodl.


Title: Re: HODL is not advisable!
Post by: pooya87 on August 23, 2018, 04:34:46 AM
the problem is not with HODL, DUMP, ... these are just empty words without meaning when used by most people because they have no idea what they are talking about. there is an underlying strategy for each of them and if that strategy is not executed properly then you are just fooling yourself by branding your actions with things like HODL.

for example HODL is just a long term investment when you buy an asset that has a long term potential for a good profit. for instance you buy bitcoin at $6000 because you speculate it will be worth $50k in 2 years or less. but when you do that then you shouldn't concern yourself with short term fluctuations.
also when you HODL you must do it with an asset that actually has a potential not anything that you can get your hands on like altcoins and tokens!

HODL at the present time is not good. The market will be eliminated poor-quality products, you should hope that I was not among them.
Conversely, if you have the patience for HODL the next 5-10 years, in my personal opinion, it makes the risk worth having.

At this moment buying is advisable as market is lower so you should be buying and holding for the bull run to begin so that you do not regret later when the market reaches 15k or so and then say you miss the opportunity to make money.

HODLing does not mean that we have no knowledge about trading. I believe HODLers are not only holding their crypto, they also do some trades as well. Hodling is for long purpose and day trading for short term purpose, if we can do both then it will be better.
Of course we need to have good money management to split our money on which coins to hold and which coins for day trading. So I have to disagree that HODL is no good at all.

Holding is not a big science nor skill and your explanation on what is holding is not anything different from what people from this community is already doing for months to year. Scalping may be profitable but definitely cannot get you big returns as much as what holding may get you in next two years. Holding may sound too hard in this down market but when bitcoin market turns into positive market then you can expect more bigger returns for you capital.

I suggest that all in the Crypto community must learn the basic trading fundamentals. There are free tutorials anywhere. Donít be lazy, think big.
Trading is good and developing skill for trading and then entering for trading is always good but timely decision making and following trend of market and finding right entry and exit points are the thing which is not possible for all the people as these tasks may consume lots of your time. Hence simply holding bitcoin is highly easier way to make big profits.

Unfortunately, not everyone can trade or will have the time to trade which is the reason why rather than gambling with what you have, you just hold for the long term as long as you are investing what you can afford to see go down more in the short term and you are investing in quality projects.

A lot of people have lost money trying to trade than if they actually held. Trading is not just ABC as there is more to it and you really want to learn a lot before embarking on such journey.  Nevertheless, it will always be an added advantage and a great knowledge to have for any good trader.

I know what you mean but what you say is how the HODL is that you will not get a trading experience that is wrong in my opinion, if you really do HODL I am sure you will often see the market and will understand how the market moves, you can also evaluate decision made, is this not experience?
Ok, we can maximize our funds or profits by scalping trading but you forget the risks, new users also prioritize low risk while learning crypto.

Yes that right , hodl is bad idea to make money in crypto because all price of altcoin in high fluctuacion and actually we can make more profit from it by learn about trading strategy. Hodl just make missing out to make big money, because many altcoin going back to the bottom after all the times high.

you know holding is depends on the coins example is the coin that is not known in the market will you still hold it for a long period of time? Unlike the coin that has already prove itself in the market that is the coin that is worth hodling.

When it terms to trading it is better to trade a coin that is also well known in the market and hold your profit.

In my very own experienced there is no good outcome when you HODL too much.

It always depends on the projects related to the coins you are holding.

In my experience I had coins I did hold and have fallen to dust, I had coins that I did hold and rose to the sky then fallen to dust, I had coins that I've sold too early and could have earned more for keeping them and I still have coins on which I am on profit.

So.. yeah.. everything can happen, so the best advice for everybody is to dig (inform) and think for himself.

When decide to hold any crypto we should be have plan for how long to hold it and how much target profit, when that target reached and then sell all that crypto and lock the profit in to fiat. To decide hold crypto we should be also understanding the fundamental of the coin and make sure buy at the cheap price. By this way hold will be worth and promising alot of profit.

Depending on each person, we are one of the individuals who hold and wait for the opportunity, we do not have much capital to sell early, if selling early we can not have high income.

First of all do you know what HODL means?
HODL is used when referring to hold the cryptocurrency rather than selling it.
Holding cryptocurrency is no good because it means you donít have a knowledge about trading, for me, you can do scalping trading and increase your holding by it and gain profit.
I suggest that all in the Crypto community must learn the basic trading fundamentals. There are free tutorials anywhere. Donít be lazy, think big.
I do not agree with you that HODL is bad because that is the best way to make good money. Take for instance, people who invested in Ripple and sold them as soon as they see increase lost huge rewards compared to those who kept if for a long time. Another example is Verge... if you are a day trader, you can make some cash in a short time but if you can HODL, chances are there that you will become a millionaire someday. Verge and Ripple made so many millionaire in the crypto space than any other crypto and all of them were people who HODL and not day traders.

I do not think so. On the contrary, HODL - was invented for the strongest in crypto. Let's remember the etherium, once it was distributed by thousands for participating in the airdrop. And only a few who believed in him, now secured a "beautiful life." I believe in HODL!

I think hold is better because by holding the assets you have at a very expensive price you can be safer because you don't lose the assets you have at a very cheap price so you can keep holding back if you don't want to lose.

On some coins yes but the majority doesnt. Holding is the best strategy to execute for this kind of market. If you bought on a high price before then why do you dont hold until the price comes back. The money invested are made to be in long term because short term is much risky.

For those who is afraid of quitting their hodl caves - I think it is time to accept previous faults and start to rebuild that you invested using, as author mentioned, scalp trading. First work with smaller amounts, always set stop loss. Eventually, you'll start making some profit but still having you bags with you

Good point, one of the factors of holding a coin is knowing that there's a good future ahead, if you hodl a project you should also study the fundamentals and all the important roles of this project from the society, if that particular coins will have a big participations and will be usable then holding it for a long term period will give you good chances to have a better value.


Title: Re: HODL is not advisable!

the correct term is "bag hold" not "hold" these two are different.

for example when you buy bitcoin and hold it, you are HODLing and it is beneficial because bitcoin will rise eventually. and even if price doesn't go up and stays here forever, you are still owning some of bitcoin which is the only decentralized currency in existence. that has to count for something!
but when you buy an altcoin and hold it, then you are "bag holding" which is the thing that is not advisable. because altcoins don't have a good future anyways so their long term prices will decline, specially those with huge supplies.

Hold doesn't always be the wrong choice, sometimes holding is also needed to avoid losses from the market decline. For the future it is very difficult to guess but from some things that have happened, HOLD will be beneficial if we choose the right coin.

I think we seem to have just made some big profits from trading, holding only when we buy coins at the bottom or dip and if we really support their project and trust the project team, we will really hold it because we support our project expect a good long-term position.

Not necessarily it works the same way. HODL has got different strategy according to the way you see it. Many times people are just investing and HODLING it but they fail at applying the proper way of earning. We should be HOLDING and at the same time whenever there is right time you just go on selling the coins which would probably be at the highest peak and thus gain some profits. Now you just keep HODL of those coins which you initially invested. Remember that you already have the profits in your hand and still hodling it.

In the current situation there is no any doubt that hold is not good strategy. It is better to sell all cryptocurrencies during any pump, try to rebuy in dip and sell again. Also I often open short positions through margin trading and earn money from it. I think that this downtrend will continue about 1 year. Only in the middle of the next year you can try to invest in cryptocurrencies for long. And of course it will be better for you to hold them for long period of time only after this situation, when Bitcoin will reach its dip under 2K$.

I don't agree to that. I know that if we have some coins then we should use it to trade regularly so that we can increase the capital. But it's not that hodling is bad . If you look at the example of early investors then you might know that they holded the coins for so long (even now) that they have gained an enormous amount of profit just for holding it. So holding is not that bad if the coin is potential and you know it will return you sure profit.

In retrospect everyone's an expert.  Hodl is only a good tactic if the market is healthy, instead we keep testing new lows and the sequence of negative events is not coming to an end either. Taking profits as often you can seems to become the new credo instead.

You might want to rethink on what you are saying.

Hold is one way of investing, why would anyone keep others from holding, who are you to judge their investment strategy, are you a person that came from the future ? Have you seen what happens to world in 20 years ? If so can you please tell us if the world ends or not ? If you are not from the future please do not tell people what to do. You think "holding" is bad because you probably got in at $20k and now looking at a bad price. I remember when bitcoin was 150 dollars, should I have sold it back than ? Should I just kept buying and selling for 6+ years ? No of  course not, holding is a legitimate strategy and anyone can do it.

I agree, that was a strong statement though, holding is still advisable though, because you have no choice but to hold, because you'll really suffer a big loss once you sell, I agree that it was thanks to people who's still holding and giving faith to Bitcoin, I'm surprised that the price where Bitcoin is stable is really high, and most of the people are complaining with that.

I think this hodling is very good if you know that the crypto that you are hodling have the potential on gaining high value in the long run. If you know what ETH or BTC is, they had very low value back then, the price of bitcoin in 2009 was less than 1 dollar or we can say that the price of bitcoin in early months of 2017 was only ranging 800-1300 dollars, also ETH`s value was only 8-200 dollars. So how can you say that hodling has no good outcome? Those who hodl potential coins back then are now rich.

Crypto currency is intended not only for retention for profit or trade purposes. The main purpose of crypto currency is an alternative payment system to the currently existing currency. Therefore, it is not necessary that all holders of the crypto currency learn to trade it on the exchange. Not everyone is given it and not everyone needs it. In addition, not everyone will have enough time to trade. In general - to trade or not, this is a private matter for everyone.

I am now making 1-2% consistently on the majority of my trades, getting in and out quickly. Losses are contained when the market moves against you.

That basics that you want to tell us is to buy low and sell high, so of course you have to hold it if the market is in bear trend. A traders can do different strategy of trading even if the market is on bear trend but it requires them to invest in more altcoins rather than a single or two tokens. This is to diversify their investments if the market is declining most of their prices.

You can see that the market is in a bear market in the long run, bitcoin prices are constantly fluctuating and adjusting very strongly, so to be able to trade successfully is very difficult, if you hold the risk will be very high if bitcoin prices continue to fall sharply and can not recover. You can only hold when the market is rising.

Now that is perfect answer to the HODL strategy here. Off courser you get the profits when you hold because our intention is to hold the crypto currencies until the time they get spiked and thus we will only sell during those period and making no loss at all.

I think it is but obvious but dont really know why OP is confused about the HODL strategy and saying that its not advisable. IMO saw someone with that attitude for the first time who went against the HODL strategy.  ;)

Not everyone having coins could be termed as traders.Traders are a separate sector who in-turn have two sections,day traders and just traders who don't trade much frequently.So holders are usually long term holders who just don't mind about fluctuations frequently occuring in the market and even they contribute much for the stability of crypto coins prices.So don't ever say that HODL is not good.

Lol, as if trading doesnt have the risks of  lossing your invested funds. Its easy to say such things specially when you didnt experienced how frustrating trading is, most specially when youre just starting up.
I guess youre hodling method didnt went very well. Hodling doesnt even mean youre not selling it, youre referering to the word "hold" literally. 
I guess youre just overwhelemed to the fact that trading is profitable, but ofcourse when youre doing it right.
Here's an important word to ponder, "Patience". I can see you dont have enough patience in hodling method, how much more when youre trading. Trading doesnt only requires great patience, but also composure, emotional control, and know-how.

I think you know this cryptocurrency market is too volatile and I hope you know about volatile means. However, every trader knows the volatile market is very risky for trading. And you said HODL man don't have knowledge about trading, it's not good. I will say HODL patient and opposite man is impatient.

In my very own experienced there is no good outcome when you HODL too much.
First of all do you know what HODL means?
HODL is used when referring to hold the cryptocurrency rather than selling it.
Holding cryptocurrency is no good because it means you donít have a knowledge about trading, for me, you can do scalping trading and increase your holding by it and gain profit.
I suggest that all in the Crypto community must learn the basic trading fundamentals. There are free tutorials anywhere. Donít be lazy, think big.

I agree, with these current market performance in which the price is fluctuating then it is really tough to just rely on holding because the price is really unpredictable. This current market situation will not favor the long term invesment anymore but it should favor the short term and the day traders in which holding is not an option.

If you don't believe in HODL then maybe you should take a look at those who HODL on their Bitcoin that they bought way back 2015 or maybe we can go back 2 years ago. 2 years ago August 2016, price of Bitcoin is just around $500 USD, Bitcoin is now traded at $6,400 USD, thats 1,100% profits in just 2 years. They HODL thats why they are rich by now.

I do believed in HODL back that year. My opinion is for the current situation of the market because it was been 5 months and still bearish, so how would you make profit if you buried your investment for such a long time? If your investment capital is ready to sleep there for 10 years well you can hodl it. Again that suggestion is for the current situation of the market.

Everything require balance in cryptocurrency.  Holding too late might be as terrible as selling too quickly.  I therefore say you should not hold indefinitely your coin.  You must schedule timing no matter what the cryptocurrency market situation is to dispose some coin!

Yes , this person is probably not a good trader, because holding is necessary in order to earn profit since the market price is not always increasing.

Actually, every trader must not trade and every trader must not HODL. you need to choose what works best for you in this industry and stick to it. I have had instances where holding was a better alternative for me. It all boils down to what works for you

Yes, I repeat, it is past and past events, it is a time when many people do not know about bitcoin, even bitcoin's reputation is very low and not outstanding, and of course, good and new technology, space for development is great, and bitcoin has achieved that quickly. The holding will be most effective, but the situation is not the same now, grows too fast and has reached the limit, it has no chance to break through, it can only be maintained at that level

the correct term is "bag hold" not "hold" these two are different.

You know, one may find out too late that he became from HODLer, bagholder. And sometimes even altcoins worth HODLing. Of course, very few altcoins...
For me holding is really an amazing thing, as now it is good time to buy but at the same time selling will be a bad thing, since long experts has been advising us all to hold our coin and not to sell it at growing time, still not too late price is increasing more and more I am sure soon price of bitcoin will be more than double, holding will give us plenty of profit so try your luck and get good amount of profit.

There are two different things that is happening in the cryptoworld. There are traders and there are  those also who are treating bitcoin as investment. Traders do not hold position rather they transact and look for lower altcoins that if bought will give them more volume with a little fund. The altcoin they will trade off once the price increases. While those that are investing are those that will hold to sell when the market value of bitcoin improves from their entry point.

Holding is one of the best strategies applied by many inorder to reduce the level of risks and losses. However, it does not mean it works for everyone. Each of us has to find our own strategy and not to depend much on others. There are tendencies that others strategies may or may not work for you, so it's very important to do own research, be observant, be informed, and be updated. Don't be afraid to fail, take every good and bad experience as the chance to grow and be productive.

Thats right dude, you have to be happy with the situation, holding is not the main choice especially if the coin you buy has a signal to continue to weaken or you need money for the needs of your life then selling is the right choice, adjust to market conditions and yourself

Yes I agree on that , holding is seasonal we don't have to stay for the coin that we are holding when it will only give as a verry small amount of profit or the worst is that it can make us loss. We need to choice the coin that is potential to do such holding on the feild. I believe that holding spends on the price. Maybe we are now on dip so holding is the best for today butvwe need to select the right coin if needed.

There's mistake with your mindset, hold is part of investment strategy. Most trader only use short into medium but only few of them use long ( hold ) because trade is short cut from investment. Trading and investment has their own risk and strategy but " hold " is hard because if you chose the wrong coin you'll get lost in big value. Think again before writing a post, sorry.

That is very true man. Bitcoin is the only cryptocurrency that is suggested for holding and not any coins that just popped out in the previous years. Don't HODL altcoins guys but perhaps ETH can be an exception. One year is the maximum time for holding and more than that will be a major disadvantage.

True of what? You are lack of knowledge about the purpose of crypto currency, imagine why do many people are holding altcoins? They wants to gain profits from crypto  they hold it because they know the potential of the coins would be increase in the future.

We also realize that holding isn't good all the times,  thus it also lead into losing so much. I'm me not on the way of creating FUD in here but base on my experience and as what I've seen in the market today, more coins are dropping hard than of recovering.

Why not hold altcoin. If you choose and hold the altcoin as good as ETH, NEO, LTC, ADA .. It will also bring a lot of profits like bitcoin when the market price increases. 1 year for holding I think it is mid-term and that time is not sure you can get profit

HODL can be done at a time like this, namely when the market situation is not improving and that means we must be able to do patience. HODL is usually defined as something related to long-term investment. This can be said as a strategy because every condition requires an appropriate treatment. Can be interpreted when we do HODL then we have to wait until the right time to get profit margins.

Lol.. you call 5 months a long time investment?

If you believed in a certain investments, a single year of holding would be too early

you could see a bear market if you Only knew crypto this year

however if you look at it closely, we are still within Bullish market in bearish trend as a whole

Yes, trading may sometimes bring more money, but hodling isn't about losing money either. Moreover, hodling is preferable for inexperienced investors because you don't lose money, which might be the case with trading.

I believe that this time if you hold and especially hold long ahnj will be very dangerous, you can see that the market is constantly fluctuating and is in the bearish trend in the long term, so to be able to minimize At risk, I believe that this time you should only short-term investment and trading day because bitcoin prices will be able to drop sharply at any time.

I agree with you even I see from market condition. In this situation every strategy will fail and you will never get income. If market condition like 2016 I believe " hold " is the right decision.

The HODL term you're trying to imply is kinda too exaggerated if I may assume, since holding coins is where your long-term investment processes. If you're a full-time trader in the market, you might understand the meaning of the HODL term fully. I am a side-trader and the HODL term bothered me the first time. The HODL isn't literally just holding your existing coins in your portfolio but also looking for opportunities to buy in the market while its down. It is like stabbing a downed beast repeatedly and then wait for it to rise up and then all of your input will finally bring out a necessary output.

Hodl just make missing out to make big money, because many altcoin going back to the bottom after all the times high.
I have seen a lot of people who just got into this space because they heard they people who invested long time ago have got extremely wealthy and they could do so too. However, what they forgot is that people who invested years ago kept holding during the storms the market brought with it, but since they know the long term value of what they were holding, the cared less about it.
Only people who are not ready to understand the potential of bitcoin may hate to hold it for years. It can only be hard to control if you do not know what to expect at every point in time or to know how to go about making investment decisions. All the people who are good in analyzing and predicting the future of bitcoins, will never say holding is not good nor advisable. I talk about only bitcoins. Holding bitcoin is highly advisable!

For me hodl is good but not in all of the altcoins. There are some altcoins that are good for trading some good for hodling. If you know how to make a good profit even if you only have a basic knowledge in crypto then you can earn big. I have read some article that they can make a big profit even f they have a small amount of knowledge in the crypto industry. The main task here in crypto is to study and learn the crypto so that if you already have the knowledge you will already know how to do the crypto and you will gain a big profit you do not have to be a pro to earn big you just need to be a hardworking and just study and understand the crypto and you will already earn.

Hodl is my mistake in cryptocurrency investment and this my decision was make me loss big amount of money. By looking to historical of many coins , only BTC and ETH is good choice to hold in long term. And other altcoin is just use it for trading because they can be back to the bottom even much lower. To earn more money in crypto market is better learn to trade because from high fluctuacion of crypto will be give more profit from trading.

Not everyone has the skill or time to engage in active trading.
Hodling gives them an opportunity to take profits from cryptocurrency, while still sharpening their skills.


Well day trade requires time to garner enough experience to be efficient. And not everyone who has time also end up being good day traders. So hodling will always be an option
Yeah and trading requires skills, knowledge and many other things that must be owned, if you don't have that it
would be better if you just kept it and hold it would still be profitable right? but it is only a few coins that are potential and worth to hold

not only trading but also investing or hodling do also require a skill and a knowledge because if you dont have them both , you can expect to loose early because you didnt know what you are really doing , you didnt know abou the potential of your coins . cryptocurrency is hard and not for every one who is only eager to earn , you also need to be knowledgeable and skillful before you enter this world in order to become succesful on your journey . so goodluck and godbless us all .

I feel holding back is the best choice and the right way to provide security to the assets that you have because if you sell assets that you have at a very cheap price, what you get is only a loss.
Lol, what the op is trying to say is that instead of just Hodlíing your coins there are other ways you can also make money, just like scalping method in trading and I heís very much right.

Most of us here are fond of doing on HODL and itís not really helping the community, because all we do is wait and once we get profit we take the money and run awayÖ So letís try to engage other processes/methods to earn and keep the crypto market going.

HODL is used when referring to hold the cryptocurrency rather than selling it.

Yes itís true, those that are doing HODL are mostly those that donít have any knowledge about tradingÖ but donít try to underestimate HODL cause I know a lot of people have made heavy money from it, if it wasnít really good you wouldnít see some people misbehaving and trying to manipulate it etcÖ But I really liked what you said here it made a lot of sense and I think people should engage themselves in trading than just looking for ways to rip off with Hodl.

Crypto currency was actually created as an alternative payment system to the existing payment systems. The existence of a payment system is impossible without keeping the crypto currency in its purses. Therefore, the retention of coins and tokens, we will vseravno use. As for making a profit, keeping the crypto currency will always be effective against young, developing and promising coins and tokens. Of course, in general, it is better to combine the opportunities for making a profit while keeping the crypto currency and its trade. However, not everyone has the ability and time to trade on the exchange for this.

Not just even for those who are stuck at a very expensive price but also for those who have no trading knowledge at all and are looking forward to the long term prospect of the project.

I would not say it is not advisable and of course, knowledge of trading can be a huge advantage, but in the case where that is the only option you have apart from panicking, I would say it is Ok for anyone if they do not want to end up regretting the outcome of their panic in the long run.

I absolutely agree with those who believe in hodling at this time. I don't mind the risk, but the risk should be reasonable. Moreover, I don't really like it when some people think they know everybody else's situation.
So, keep on hodling as long as it seems beneficial. 8)

it seems, though not recommended, there are still so many people who do it. Well, basically bitcoin, or altcoin is not an investment tool, so the price may fall. well, but people still think of the high profits of the price increases that occur on each coin.

Maybe you just take "HODL" literally. At the first place, holding has it's limits and it's way undeniably better than day trading (for me) because you didn't need to sweat out for profits, you just buy a POTENTIALLY good coin the sell it on profits. There has limits and when you hit those limits then you could sell your "HODL" coin.

You cant force anyone to trade of since they do know their capabilities and knowledge and even knowledgeable ones do decide to hold too.If you are a beginner then you don't really have any choice but to hold but if you do like to step up since you do like to see profits in short term then you would need to learn trading and practice on how to make profit on market prices movements. Hold is only good for coins that are good for long term but its normal that you wont really earn something equal compared on doing short trades.

It is just about choice/preferences, even if we have enough basic knowledge to trade but our main goal is just for long term holding then we are free to do it.

Indeed, that's a good example, some investors doesn't know how to trade, because they're just new to Bitcoin. That's why they don't have a choice but to hold. Hold is still advisable for people who's just new to Bitcoin, and also it's profitable especially for people who have a long patience, or we can call long term investors.

Based on my own experience HODL is not advisable when the market is on bear or downtrend because we dont know how dip is the bottom is. but when the market is bull or uptrend you can HODL your altcoins or bitcoin until you satisfy your greed that time you can take profit.

and also, you can hodl to the coins or projects even they go dip when you truly believe that their project is a game changer and you believe that you will make a lot of money in the long run.

Why? If you purchase in high rate but now the market is down so you are in lose. But if you purchase in low rate I mean for an example if you purchased bitcoin when it was in 6500$ then sure now you are in profit. At this condition why hold is not advisable? If you think it as a up and down condition of the market then itís ok. Yes, I agree at this point. But Market will be stable now I think. Because Last Friday bitcoin make a record drop for volatility in its 11-month history.

So, I wouldn't impose my opinion on others because it might be bad for some people.
Trading generally requires anyone to try as much as possible to get enough experience and be able to use that experience and knowledge to their advantage. HODL is only the best method for long term investors who simply may not have all that it takes to be able to trade the market effectively.

OP has some point in it.  hodling isn't good for the crypto community as it prevents coin/token circulations and transactions.  it's for the society that instead of hodling, people learn to sell their coins at premium price - like placing a sell order on exchange at a higher than running price.  this way, it will help increase the price of the coin/token - a much healthier approach than just hodling.

Instead of doing holding alone as the main thing why you guys cannot go with the coins which is profitable and invest on those coins buddy. I really want to pick the good coins that time when the market is completely dump in that time.
Well after that you may go to hodl the coins you have in your private or business wallets buddy/

Partly you're right man, probably those days I was holding while in bull run of 2017 I regret of not selling while the price was still high. Maybe I benefited the profit which I wanted to have if I choose to dump those coins I had. I could consider myself a loser thinking that those opportunity passed by, and ignoring it was a big mistake I did.

Same here, during the bear market we see the values on the consistent decline, the longer the bear market lasts. And recent years have shown that a bear market lasts on average a year. People who came new to the game got wrecked the most as there was a strong perception that after a short break the bull run continues.

You should not hold at this point and especially hold onto long term, you can see that the market is fluctuating continuously and is continuously declining dramatically in the last 7 months, it can be seen that despite altcoin prices are Strong recovery but bitcoin prices are facing strong resistance, so to be able to trade successfully at this time is very difficult, bitcoin prices will be able to drop sharply at any time.

There are many holders that know how to trade, and the reason they are holding at the moment is simply that the market is in terrible conditions, you are not going to earn a lot of money in this market if you are a trader, and the reason for that is when we were in the middle of the bull market it was very easy to gain profits for a trader, it was so easy that you could invest almost in any coin and earn money, but in this market it is almost impossible to find opportunities like that.

Yeah! Being educated in cryptocurrency will help us to become profitable. In fact, many people have been successful through trading. But we will not become successful if we don't have knowledge and experience in trading. Lots of people are entering the trading market without knowing it all.

In order to decide on long-term electronic holdings, we should explore the potential, the development of the currency and have to buy at cheap rates. If holdings will be valuable and profitable. When deciding to keep any password, we should plan to keep it and check how much it will achieve, when that goal is achieved and then sell all that coins.

I agree with this view. With the increase in holdings you will be able to achieve maximum profit. And we should adopt the business and the electronic money that we hold. Those who want to do that are first need to control the psychological stability of each transaction and transaction principles. Because the market simply puts a lot of pressure on the players, the investors are always psychologically FOMO or FUD to be attracted. That is really dangerous

But it ends on holding again. It does not mean that you are holding your coins that you have, you can play it with the market. Just like you said, scalping can be a strategy for us to get higher amount of hold tokens. I believe that trading is a matter of strategy and always end for hold, buy and sell depends upon the movement of the market.

The HODLING Bitcoin can be advisable. Look at how deep the altcoins has fallen, but BTC is still staying on the levels about $6500. Don't HODL an altcoins but trade them, because these coins can be go down even lower than today.

To be honest, I also prefer to trade. When an investor is HODLING, he/she is usually very nervous if the crypto exchange markets turn red. So sell high and buy low, and don't worry about the red colors of the prices.

;D That shows the level at which a lot of newbies just want to get rich quickly in this market. Maybe they should ask what those who have been holding since around 2010 has passed through in the market movement and someone who just came yesterday feels he or she is entitled to the moon.
This is the reason why they raise their expectations too high for silly reasons and then get frustrated at the end. If they cannot withstand it, like I always say, they should go learn how to trade but also have to understand there is no shortcut to trading as that can make them lose more if they do it without knowledge.

Certainly, anything you do too much, you are bound to have the regrets. The same applies to holding. You must always know when to sell off and this warrants you to learn technical analysis to be sure when the trend in the market is going against you. Hold but know when to sell off.

Many times holding is a better option than you selling in a loss making deal because of volatility we know it will fall or crash but then it will also rise.  It does require some time to rise and if you can hold for that period nothing like it because bull run can be really quick and help us to make money.

A lot of people came into crypto when the bull market was in it's final stages, they were primarily attracted by the price increases, less so about the technology. Quite understandable that many panic. If you sit on a large amount of coins and haven't researched them properly, it's not a nice situation to be in...especially not in a bear market.

In my very own experienced there is no good outcome when you HODL too much.
First of all do you know what HODL means?
HODL is used when referring to hold the cryptocurrency rather than selling it.
Holding cryptocurrency is no good because it means you donít have a knowledge about trading, for me, you can do scalping trading and increase your holding by it and gain profit.
I suggest that all in the Crypto community must learn the basic trading fundamentals. There are free tutorials anywhere. Donít be lazy, think big.
We can't push others to risk their money into trading field. Yes, you have said that not all of us are knowledgeable enough with that and might be prefer holding for safe keep. But this strategic way isn't good at this time since market isn't growing and we only get nothing if we don't do anything just like trading.

Only those who do not know the strategy to benefit from a market that supports hodl.

not only for a newbie but overall it is advisable for everyone . hodl is the best way to do in this current market situation because we see that the value of cryptos is verry confusing . though its up to them whether they will sell some or not . selling some of your coins sometimes is not a bad idea at all knowing that you will be needing the money for important situation or for emergency usage  but selling for your own sake of hapiness is not really recomended at all .

Ironically, this year was very tiring because asset movement continued to decline, even many began to saturate and sell in panic conditions, but it was very important to measure potential prices to remain stable at a minimum, so that momentum was needed to increase prices.

HODL is not recommended for people who are not strong enough to hold it for more than one year, but this condition will also determine periodic price developments.

For me, hodling is good if you dont have time to trade. You can gain from hodling, bitcoin is an example which has the price of maybe $10 in the beginnings of the coin and if you hodl it for a long time, the price now is so much big. Hodl is for investors who want to gain without so much trading and takes a lot of years to gain much profit.

I'm interested in learning how to trade though. But there are so many materials online to sort through the good ones. Could you post some links or recommend good resources?

if you want to know the best source of your experience is your own experience, if you read the source from the internet you will not get the benefits of trading, if you analyze your trade then you will know how to trade, and see the price history of a coin that you trade , a good way of fighting is analyzing and other sources are only for the benchmark and you can also extract the source so you will get a way to trade coins

HODL is pretty much advisable to those coins that do have a future. HODL is advisable too, to those who are not so much into trading and have a great luckiness when it comes to prediction. HODL is much advisable when the market is going down, eventually it will rise up again (Market cycle)....
HODL is not advisable to those person who are easy to let go of their coins and is not a believer that it will eventually rise its value. HODL is not advisable if majority are selling their coins,  pretty much you loose a chance to sell a coin with a great price.
In summarization,  it is important to know when is the right time to hold a coin or sell it out.  It is not the matter of is it advisable or not to HODL, what matter most is HODL can get you benefit but at the same time it can get you stuck too.
By experience, i split the number of my coin in two,  sell out the half and HOLD the half. So i can get the benefit of HODL it and lessen the chance of not getting merit for it.

it depends on the coins because I think hold for long-term investment is good, so we don't have become worried if the price stays at a rate now because we want to sell in one period. so if we have a strong coin like bitcoin, then the price will increase in a long-term although we don't know when it will increase or how much the price can increase. so you need to determine to hold or not and don't forget to decide how long you want to keep.

For a bear market it is ok. When the market goes on a wrong direction mean when you buy at a low rate but market goes lower then holds is not advisable. But look at the bitcoin history. What is happen recent months? Bitcoin makes lots of drop records in its own history. For this unexpected drop record you also take this word as unpredictable most of the people now in fear about holding. They already make a huge lose. So how can they buy bitcoin and hold? But unfortunately bitcoin now go up day by day and there is very low chance for drop again.

Yes, trading may sometimes bring more money, but hodling isn't about losing money either. Moreover, hodling is preferable for inexperienced investors because you don't lose money, which might be the case with trading. So, I wouldn't impose my opinion on others because it might be bad for some people.
You are right it is not good to have day trading than long term trading, it needs allot of patience and a lot of time to trade for day because you will have to remain active all the day, it needs time and patience, day trading needs high amount of knowledge, the more time you will spend the more it will get you income, so trading for long term is really an advisable earning resources.

True, it is as if for them the only thing that exist is the present and just a few weeks of the past of bitcoin, it is as if they purposefully forget about all the years of existence of bitcoin and the great benefits that those that held get, this is the same problem with all of those that claim that bitcoin is dead when bitcoin has a price of 7000 dollars which is higher than the price of most months in the life of bitcoin.

Well, hodling depends on our current situation if we don't much of the time to do even short term trading then it is fine to do hodling in our life, but at some time hodling has some negative advantage too especially if we do have plan to get our investment in just a short period of time, what is best is to give ourselves time to make at least short trading.

HODL is hold on for dear life. The term's easy HODLING means not selling coins that we have even when the price's falling, so we have to be patient in investing long term. If you're the type of person who keeps following Bitcoin price movements, it's certainly not easy to be seduced by the FUD persuasion. In essence if you sell it now, other traders will definitely take our money.

In order to earn on a crypto market you need knowledge. Of course, the easiest way to buy coins for HOLD. Because coins from the top 10 are good projects and most likely they will give a good profit in 1-2 years. So you can just buy any of them (and better bitcoin and ether) and this is guaranteed to bring profit.
With trade everything is completely different. It is not enough to trade in specific currencies, as this doesn't guarantee a profit. It is necessary to have knowledge, which will bring you profit.
Of course, most market participants don't want to waste their time and energy on training. But this is their own business. Who really wants to earn, he learns how to do it.

Unfortunately not everyone wants to do trading and just prefer holding as they may be busy in real world. And even you think you're trading doesn't mean you're a real trader that really have this knowledge. And even profit will takes time in holding than trading we can be still be certain that it's worth the effort. Don't brag over your so called knowledge.

hey, I also like your strategy, maybe with this strategy you can trade a lot of assets in the market, because capital from this result can still buy assets again.

You are not correct my friend.
If you had some loss due to HODLING some coins then it is your mistake that you didn't choose the correct coin to HODL upon. Profits can really be multiplied in huge amounts if we HODL the coin for long intervals but the coin should be potential and should have a good volume. If you are pretending to Hodl a low volume coin than probably it would loose its value as per time intervals and short term trading can be preferred in these kind of low volumr coins.
Coins like ETH, BTC, etc have the potential to multiply our profits if we pretend to hold them for long terms.

I don't agree with your all points. Some people don't research, they only follow what people say. HODL is not for everyone and it is not for forever. I am a trader too but still, I am hodling some coins. Because every coin is not good to trade! If you don't have enough time to trade or if you don't know how to trade well then yes holding is the good solution for you. Think about a Bitcoin holder, MTC holder and even recent Pundix and Arbitrafe (ARB) holder! They made the massive profit only by holding. So, It is necessary too. If you hold good coins like The bitcoin, Ethereum, ADA or NEO or other proved altcoins, then you will get profit one day. But Each loses in the trade won't recover! So, both are important in the crypto life. This is my personal opinion btw.

LoL both are beneficial and profitable, it comes always with the matter of coin/token types. if you don't have too much time to watch market then proceed to Hodling, if you can take your risk in trading that is also good. i used to trade in weekly airdrop coins because their market is more volatile than ICO, in short Scalp trading is good if you have more time in front of your screen.

You may have a point but I do not agree when you say that HODL is not advisable. HODL is proven effective by so many experienced crypto fanatics, even expert traders. So I guess HODL is advisable to a certain extent. To demonstrate it to you the importance of HODL, you may just take a look at the previous year. Take a look at Bitcoin, Ethereum, LiteCoin, and other solid coins.

If you are not very confident with day trading, just HODL.

The hold is important for your future growth and purposes. If you hold the coin you know the price information day by day. Then easy to manage the coin. So if the price will be increasing then sell. Next time it will go down. You know what time to buy and sell the coin. Time to acct and complete the work on time. You always have a plan every time. People hold the coin if price down. So people time to sell and time to buy it. The hold is important of your future saving and growth.

Holding cryptocurrency is no good because it means you donít have a knowledge about trading, for me, you can do scalping trading and increase your holding by it and gain profit.

I have been trading for a decade, and from what I have learnt, I would suggest to drop the idea of scalp trading, cause it might ruin your wealth.

In my opinion, HODLing is by far the best thing you can do when the market is really poor. With HODLing there is no lost now gain, unless you trade. So if you can, try to HODL for as long as you can watch the market recover.

In this current market situation, holding your coins is the best way to avoid losses. Though long terms holding can bring good profits in the future but still we need to learn basic techniques in trading to at least earn a profit on a daily basis.

You are making a nice point here. Some hodl crypto currencies out of fear of losing it to trade. But  personally I come to realize that if you don't start trading someday, you will not know how to trade. Until you make up your mind to start you will hold forever

I was wondering why did you said that Hold is not advisable? Maybe its not advisable for the people you said that are lack of knowledge which is I agreed, but telling it generally here is not good. Though, you didn't mention generally. And for me ti si still a good things method to be implement if the coins are really has potentials to increase but if your not sure never hold it just simple as that.

HODL is really dangerous for any trader or investors who bought altcoins that has inexperienced team or an unprofessional team. HODL is not also good when you are doing it for 4-5 years. If you people want to play safe then just do the HODL for 6 months and test if it rises on those months because if not then stop the HODL for the next 6 months so in short just sell it.

I agree with this. I think one should learn how to trade instead of just holding especially here in cryptocurrency market because prices are so volatile and when the market is not doing good, you could lose 99% of the value of the coin you are holding. This is my experience and I did regret not selling when the price of the coin is high that's why I decide to just sell a coin whenever I can and just trade short term because it is more favorable for me.

If you Hold BTC 4-5 years ago, it does good to you bud, imagine how rich you are

6 months is too early for decent and good coin to Hold

imagine you buy BTC last feb, and found it fell price at this date after 6 months, probably you would sell it at a loss

If you could at least wait up at least a year might be your waiting will be paid off

he has his own opinion about hold is not advisable but for me, the hold is another way to get more profit in altcoin and bitcoin although it needs time before we can sell at the highest price. and if I see that the price is going down and I cannot sell, it is better to hold for a while and maybe I will decide to buy more in an amount so I can have a chance to sell and make a bigger profit. in this day, I can sell my BCD at the higher price and I already add more in my wallet so my profit is bigger than before.

This is purely dependent on what timeframe are we speaking here and the experience of the individual.

For a newer individuals starting to trade i certainly would recommend hodling more than trying to scalp/daytrade. Fees + lost trades would eat your starting capital faster than piranhas.

For more experienced traders, i'd still recommend hodling BTC besides trading. Historically BTC and majors have been a great investment and judging by the fundamentals i dont see BTC slowing down. There's development happening as we speak.

For some reason, hodl is not that advisable unless it is bitcoin as it can really goes up too much at the right time, but when it comes to altcoins there is no assurance or guarantee that it will go up just like how much bitcoin goes up, that is why we need to be in touch with the market and news as well so that we will know how we are going to do.

Wonder why some people  are  bothering holders unnecessarily. Cryptocurrency is valuable because of holders just as dollar is valuable because of both American and foreign holders. Saving hasn't  stop people from spending or trading dollars.
Imagine fiat currency without  savings in banks - banks will operate in huge losses... very few will survive... they all depend on your savings. Cryptocurrency is no different. Holders are needed, Spenders are needed, Traders are also needed, all for the good of Crypto.

Being patient could help when you are holding your coins. But, take note holding is depends on a certain coin if it is good for long term investment. Some coins didn't maintain the value in the market so you have to analyze if it is really worth holding.

HODLing does not mean that we have no knowledge about trading. I believe HODLers are not only holding their crypto, they also do some trades as well. Hodling is for long purpose and day trading for short term purpose, if we can do both then it will be better.
Of course we need to have good money management to split our money on which coins to hold and which coins for day trading. So I have to disagree that HODL is no good at all.
Unfortunately, most HODLers do not see any sense in trading as they simply dub it to be very risky. But how can they cope with a perpetual bear market as we're in without a good root in knowledge and trading. A common mistake is the belief that HODLing is one and same with trading.

What you said is true, but remember that Bitcoin was created not to be an investment, its proposal is to be sound money. If you relate it to dollar or any other fiat currency it is an investment, but if you relate it to a store of value, goods and services then it is real money.

As of now, I am holding 50% of the funds and spending rest 50% funds as I believe that the movement is a growth.

I think that if you continue to buy and hold coin at this time you will continue to lose heavily, the market is bearish in the long term and I believe the bitcoin price will be able to continue fluctuations. and more aggressive and may drop to $ 5000 in the near future. So if you buy bitcoin at this moment I believe you will definitely damage very heavily. The market will continue to fall sharply in the coming time.

Yes, that is true. HOLD is not the main choice in playing on cryptocurrency or even the stock market. We must dare to move and keep trying to increase our assets in the way you mentioned earlier, "scalping". Of course, this is indeed a heavy start, there are many media that we can use to learn and do not have to use large funds, because our goal is to increase assets by collecting little by little. Hold does give a big advantage but it takes a lot of time and energy.

If wishes were horses, beggars might right. As I'm inclined to think, many of us would be happy to use crypto as a means of payment (though probably not Bitcoin), but there is no real benefit in that, only expenses. For example, you can order a Bitcoin payment card, so you can kinda pay with crypto for your everyday needs. So far so good. But the fees you will have to pay as well exchange rates make this whole idea not very attractive overall. It would be nice if sellers and merchants accepted crypto directly, but they are few and far in between. Nowadays, you can pay directly with crypto only to people like us who are genuinely interested in cryptocurrencies. But one swallow does not make a summer.

I agree with you! HODL is not practical. Before, I thought, it will bring more profit. But seeing the market downtrend nowadays for such a very long time, I don't believe in HODL theory anymore. Many of the coins which I hodl are now going nowhere. Instead of going to the moon, it went to hell; zero value at all. I should have dealt with my greed earlier and should have sold them even at a petty price (well, at least, it had price then, though petty, unlike now). I learned my lesson in crypto the hard way.

With the current situation we do not know when the btc's price will increase, so the holding may be very little profit and the money spent to be able to use one or several btc is not small. With this money you can participate in trading, if not too much luckless .I'm sure the profit will be much better.

You may have a point but I do not agree when you say that HODL is not advisable. HODL is proven effective by so many experienced crypto fanatics, even expert traders. So I guess HODL is advisable to a certain extent. To demonstrate it to you the importance of HODL, you may just take a look at the previous year. Take a look at Bitcoin, Ethereum, LiteCoin, and other solid coins.

If you are not very confident with day trading, just HODL.   

I agree with this statement, in trading you can loose a lot of money very quickly. If you hodl you only have paper losses, unless you get to the stage of panic and selling low because of the (often irrational) fear to loose everything.

My friend, perhaps you should know that although trading may be one of the most profitable businesses that exist, not everyone has the skills, knowledge or personality characteristics appropriate to engage in trading. The historical statistics are strong in this regard, showing more than 90% failures among those who decided to try their luck in trading.

On the other hand, we can not disqualify the "hodl" as a bad strategy or a lack of intrinsic capacity. We must be aware that the crypto market is just in an initial phase of expansion and the possibilities are immense, it is only a matter of time for good cryptocurrencies like bitcoin to reach levels that will surprise you in a couple of years.

HODL is used when referring to hold the cryptocurrency rather than selling it.
Holding cryptocurrency is no good because it means you don’t have a knowledge about trading, for me, you can do scalping trading and increase your holding by it and gain profit.

My friend, perhaps you should know that although trading may be one of the most profitable businesses that exist, not everyone has the skills, knowledge or personality characteristics appropriate to engage in trading. The historical statistics are strong in this regard, showing more than 90% failures among those who decided to try their luck in trading.

On the other hand, we can not disqualify the "hodl" as a bad strategy or a lack of intrinsic capacity. We must be aware that the crypto market is just in an initial phase of expansion and the possibilities are immense, it is only a matter of time for good cryptocurrencies like bitcoin to reach levels that will surprise you in a couple of years.

As much as I want your words to be true or come true in the nearest future, that tale about "crypto market being just in an initial phase of expansion and the possibilities are immense" I heard many years ago. And somehow I think that when this market is about to bite the dust (I sincerely hope this day will never come, though), some or even a lot of people will continue to repeat this mantra. The truth is we don't know if the market is actually in the initial phase or it is already past its prime.

Regarding your other point, if trading is one of the most profitable businesses out there, how come that the absolute majority of traders are still losing in the end as you yourself point out? Yes, it may be highly profitable to the ones who can milk the market in one way or another, but they are few and far in between. The rest is just cannon fodder for them that they feed on.

In my personal opinion, why is HODL now is not advisable, it refers to the current market conditions, namely where the trend is down and the market is bleeding. Regarding not having trading experience, laziness or so is because on the person not because of HODL. For example, I often do HODL, but I also often monitor the market looking for information and so on, because my principle is that I don't want to leave any information and want to continue to know the market situation as a step to making a portfolio.

Right now users who are in need of money there is no more holding. It is always advised to exchange to the requirement, as the price keeps falling. This time each and every expertise predictions were outlawed, leading to a massive blow of the market. Who has the ability to hold longer time period HODL is good.

At present buying is more favorable as market has slump so you can easily buy 1 btc in 6200$ where till last couple of days back it was at 7.2k and above. So you are getting a discount of 1000$ straight way on just 1 btc. So start buying at this fall.

Well, I am not against speculation but honestly believe that we should give first preference to use Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency as a payment system instead of looking at it as a speculation instrument in the first place. As of now, I am holding 50% of the funds and spending rest 50% funds as I believe that the movement is a growth. The early adopters spent their funds as a payment instrument and then only cryptocurrencies gained value. Now, it is our responsibility to do the same as our contribution to the growth of this innovation & industry.

If wishes were horses, beggars might right. As I'm inclined to think, many of us would be happy to use crypto as a means of payment (though probably not Bitcoin), but there is no real benefit in that, only expenses. For example, you can order a Bitcoin payment card, so you can kinda pay with crypto for your everyday needs. So far so good. But the fees you will have to pay as well exchange rates make this whole idea not very attractive overall. It would be nice if sellers and merchants accepted crypto directly, but they are few and far in between. Nowadays, you can pay directly with crypto only to people like us who are genuinely interested in cryptocurrencies. But one swallow does not make a summer.

Exactly! We don't have the crypto friendly market environment as of now in most of the cities around the world. However, the situation is gradually changing and I believe that we will see a better picture within next 5 to 10 years where we will be able to use Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies without converting into any other currency. Technically, it doesn't make any sense even if I am using crypto enabled debit card because, at the end of the day, nothing extraordinary is going to happen other than just the conversion of crypto to fiat.

And we won't have such an environment unless and until the prices exchange rates become stable, and not stable as we understand it given the insane volatility of the crypto market but rather as the rest of the world sees it. In practice, it means that Bitcoin, Litecoin, whatever, should be more stable that the majority of fiat currencies which are now circulating inside the world economy. And they should be so stable long enough for merchants to start trusting them as a valid means of payment. I don't think it is ever possible, at least not until most coins have flown into the real economy.

This is an apparent chicken-and-egg problem in itself. Merchants won't accept crypto due to its high volatility but this volatility won't go away until merchants start to accept crypto. And it doesn't look like this paradox is going to be resolved soon.

Here, many have a situation that they are forced to HODL - coins were bought at a high price and now the price has fallen very much. There is nothing to wait for the return of the price, otherwise there will be a big loss. Many people are waiting for the return of prices to the previous level - at least bitcoin up to $ 10,000. Perhaps this will happen soon - maybe not this year, it's hard to say. In occasion of reception HODL-a true decision in some cases-but is more correct when means in a turn.

Or you don't need to buy 1 full BTC if you don't have the needed funds at the moment. What you can do is buy in small portions and that's it. You wouldn't even noticed that you have already save 1 BTC and then hold. I wouldn't say that HODL is not advisable because people with no trading experience will agree that this is the best method, no risk, just mentally strong to hodl during panic crash of the market.

It depends on the situation of the market. We should know when to buy and when to sell depending on the market flow. If the market situation is in dip or red, holding is advisable. When the market is in green and all the prices are good, it is better to sell and buy when the prices are low.

Yes it would be the most logical thing to do, but now people who planned to buy when bitcoin is low fear it might go even lower and they loose more. Buy low sell high is as simple as it gets but the human mind is full of traps that make you blind for the obvious.

for those who have little knowledge about crypto currency trading, of course with holding is their final choice, because they still believe in the principle of buying low prices and selling at high prices, and they are greedy to get big profits by continuing to hold their coins
It is the opposite, those that choose to hold their coins are doing it because they understand very clearly that trading your coins can be profitable but the chances of being one of those people that make profits out of this market are very low, so instead of taking the incredibly risky path of trading they choose the safer and more secure path of holding and making profits that way.

well, I guess holding is depend I think in the coins we hold. But most of the time Holding coins in a long terms was always good methods for those who have a bit doubt in the coins they hold. Though most coins/altcoins now are undervalued or declined situation. But it still good hold just be patience and time will come for sure we can achieve what we are waiting for isn't right.

The fact is that the technology block chain is even very much in demand even today, so the Crypto currency also has good potential in the future. Proceeding from this, it is possible to say with certainty that the crypto-currency market is stabilizing unambiguously.

That is right, maybe it is not really advisable for those who are not willing to take risk to hodl their investment, but to a short term or long term investment, as it is not fine to take risk if you are still in doubt or not willing to, and if you will hodl you need to at least wait couple of months for  your investment to grow.

Partly you're right mate, there's a stabilized situation happening with crypto so if they said it's not good to hodle then why new comers were coming in right now? I didn't have confidence on some ideas given by people here, and all I can say for this situation we should be steady and calm for the asset we have so that we'll be able to survive with current struggles we had.

HODLing is advisable when you have TOP coins and have no time or knowledge for trading.

It is better to short your coins  and avoid losing your investment.

If money was invested in the long term, then why sell at the time of the fall? The rise in prices of crypto currency always exceeds its fall.
The feeling that the author is new to the crypto currency. And he certainly thinks that now his calls will collapse the market. But it looks so stupid.
This is hilarious from your side. In my opinion, the market can not collapse with a single word. I would say that there is no other way to reduce or escape the loss that can be countered by the fall in the price of the coins you hold. The helps a lot because holding the coins till the market recovers give away more in return than what you might earn if the money had been placed in a bank account.

You're right its a good time to accumulate coins that has potential since majority are in dips. Trading in bear market is risky and requires enough knowledge thus hodling is a good option in times like this.

I've been holding my coins for a year now and since then I made a huge gains through it, for me holding doesnt mean you will only hodl for long period and wont take profit when there's a chance. But for downtrend market like this its better to hodl to avoid losing because its quite risky.

Yes I agree o that hodle really depend on the market. If the market is in a status of huge dip maybe that was a good time to hodle, while if the market is in a high price status or maybe in a high volume we can maybe sell our holdings to earn a profit. So then I believe that hodle is always depend on the market status.

Of course holding something without any goal or limit when to sell or buy out would cause you missed opportunity to sell high. Holding is not for everyone, some people hold for greater profit depends on the coin you hold. not all coin or token deserve to be hold.

Of course it is nature of bitcoin price is to increase and decrease as if today price is high then it is surely true price of bitcoin will be low and affordable tomorrow so hold your bitcoin it will rise and price of bitcoin will again come to its position after sometime of falling, so according to me it is good to hold as investment is all about holding and waiting.

I think it is not just about raising or decreasing in price but demand for the product also. If the price falls low enough in order to the demand increased, then the price will start to increase and probably decrease the demand. And longterm keeping of coins does no help actually. It is better to know how to trade.

Although it depends on the market situation, these days, I am really gravitating to say that there is credence to this proposition. I say that because what's happening these days are just bad trends and movements, and it's not helping coins and projects all over the market, in general, or specifically. And so, if one intends to hold his coins for that long, instead of gaining something good out of it, it may lead to bad trends that could affect such strategy on the negative. Like, right now, I have held my Ethereum for a while now, hoping that it will rise up. Unfortunately, it fell sharply, which is really hurting my investment. I am just being positive, though, because that's all I can do.

NO, it is not. Holding cryptocurrency doesn't mean that you don't have any knowledge about it, it is just a simple strategy that instead on losing profits on the panic selling, you would rather hold your tokens and wait, but also, it could the other way around just like what you have said. Hodling is a wise idea for me and not for those people who don't know how to Trade their tokens, in my opinion.

But sometimes, too much hodling could lead on losing your profits because of your greed, so be wise and be active on daily trading prices of the tokens you are holding.

This is the fault of a person who's not doing his/her own research regarding the coin you are to invest to. This is not great for you to execute your trades. If the coin you're trading is sht, then TP out immediately after winning a trade. That's how it goes.
I agree with you. That if you choosen a shit coin then you just need to wait some time to get some profits. After getting some profits you need to sell off your coin to be safee from losses and if you want to get good amount of profits by long-term hold then you need to choose top coin like Bitcoin.

In my very own experienced there is no good outcome when you HODL too much.
First of all do you know what HODL means?
HODL is used when referring to hold the cryptocurrency rather than selling it.
Holding cryptocurrency is no good because it means you donít have a knowledge about trading, for me, you can do scalping trading and increase your holding by it and gain profit.
I suggest that all in the Crypto community must learn the basic trading fundamentals. There are free tutorials anywhere. Donít be lazy, think big.

Of course holding something without any goal or limit when to sell or buy out would cause you missed opportunity to sell high. Holding is not for everyone, some people hold for greater profit depends on the coin you hold. not all coin or token deserve to be hold. 
Yes it is not good to hold without any reason if we will hold our coin to have profit, the more we will hold the more it will rise in price and our income will be more than double, it is very important to hold when the market is low and selling will cause a big lose for you, it is good to sell if price is high in market but if price will be low so you will have to hold at lower price.

Not all investors can actively trade in the Crypto currency at the exchange. Someone does not have enough time for this, someone just can not do it. Therefore, a significant part of the holders of the crypto currency will vseravno simply keep it in the hope of making a profit from its growth in price. During the growth of the crypto-currency market, retention brings a good profit, however, during the period of its fall or stagnation, as now, only retaining profits does not bring. Those who can not constantly trade, it is better to trade with coins and tokens for a period of time at large price increases and falls. This is the most optimal for making a profit.

That is right, hodl is not advisable if you are not a risk taker and it causing you depression with the market, that is why we need to keep calm with the situation right now as no one knows and can tell when will the market recover, it may take month or so before it will happen, so just hodl for a while or withdraw if you are in panic mode.

Perhaps the downward trend since the beginning of the year is causing panic in the investor and community psychology -> actually said hold is gradually failing. Because the market is not showing signs of stability and if you are not alert, you can become their grill.

I think holding is depending to what funds you have because if the coin don't have future why we need to hold it? So I think there's nothing wrong if people choose to hold than to sell it. And it doesn't that you hold for long time you don't have any idea about trading some people choose a right time to make a good profit.

If you want to hold make sure the coin is potential that gives you more money after few years.

It's not advisable to take anyone's say on the currency, do your homework.
Apart from buying the currency, there are other ways of investing in it
-Trading in bitcoin which requires actively buying at a low price and selling when the price goes up within a short time. It requires knowledge and practice

You're right. I appreciate your thoughts. For an experienced trader HODLing isn't probably the best thing to do, but all people are different and some of them are not ready to leave their comfort zone; on the other hand, they will never learn how to trade unless and until they do leave their comfort zone. However, forcing them to stop HODLing in favor of trading might not be appropriate for everyone on this forum.

there are times when you hold a coin and when you sell coins, recognize the market situation, you may be able to do market analysis to maximize results, maybe for that time it cannot be determined because prices tend to fluctuate, take advantage of opportunities and don't hesitate to make decisions. My advice is not only focus on bitcoin can with ETH, ripple, BCH ctc.

Everything is really depend on the price, HODL is advisable during dip, because if we sell on dip we can maybe lose a huge amount of profit. I believe that this dip is an opportunity and not a good time to sell and if we are going to hold we must always put a basis on the price not on the that advice us on what we are going to do because they also didn't even know when bitcoin or maybe crypto will rise.

Yeah adjust to market conditions and situation, not always holding is the right choice, especially if the market situation continues to deteriorate and prices will continue to fall, maybe holding is a bad idea and selling a good idea and you can buy it at a lower price, which most importantly adjust to the situation dude!

It will depend upon the situation and also on which coins you hold. Because if you hold those worthless or low cost coins then you may be doing wrong by holding it. Instead selling would be better option. But if you hold best of the coins then yes holding is the best way to make money.

People advised holding at the time when the market was very profitable. It has been experienced in recent times that those who engage in hodl have incurred losses on their investments, as the market has not taken a reverse turn. In my own opinion, i think HODL still remains the best option for those who are already at a loss on their investments.

after you buy any coins, you cannot sell the coins directly and you should wait for a while until the price can increase to the higher price and it means, you need to hold for a moment. without hold for a while, you cannot make any profit and you will be going to lose your money and we need to think about this. I prefer to hold for some time than to sell it because I have a chance to make a bigger profit in someday. I know that hold needs time before the price can increase but it is worth to hold the coins.

Hodl is like limiting or holding the supply of the coin or token to upper its value as I know it is. It is another way or chance though for a coin and token to upper its value. As we learn that the lower the supply and the higher of demand cause increasing of price of a particular matter. Same as this type of business we Hodl to upper the price. Hodl is maybe advisable to do but not that actually is. This is only my opinion and capacity of mind though in terms of Hodling. No hate.

there are also some that you must understand.

I believe, they will not trade. but always want to collect.

Let me see if I can answer your question. Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies had been rising since September 2016 with a couple minor, short-lived corrections. Any way you slice it, It was easy money. You could buy at any price and then just sit on your hands patiently waiting till the price had risen enough to let you book handsome profits. That lasted for over a year, so don't get surprised there were a lot of people involved in that activity of doing nothing. It pisses off not only you but also many other people across the forum as holdlers were profiting off the people who actually had been adding value to Bitcoin, at their expense. But now many of those holdlers seem to have fallen a victim to their own stratagem having been left holding the bag. Actually, plenty of bags.

Yes HODL the coins is really the best way in this market because when you didn't hold it there is a big possibility that you missed a big opportunity on which can give us a huge profit in the future. Also these days, are the best days to buy and hold it because anytime it will be recover and going up again to reached new all time high and can encourage new investors to invest and support its price.

Hodl will be profitable if you start it in the end of bearish market,  but you will loss if you start it in bull market,  so to make profit from hodl we have to know situation of the crypto market.

In my experiences in this crypto world where ups and down were always present..
"HODL is not ADVISABLE" will become a case-to-case basis.
Example: If the project is very good at first then suddenly getting worst, DON'T HODL IT.. just be sure you are updated on that project.
               If the project is getting and better and have a long time plan together with its tangible project promotion., better to HOLD IT..

another is TRADING!!!!
I am still working on the side of reading graph.. but its so hard for me, only relying on the DESCRIPTIVE ANALYSIS rather than the TECHNICAL ANALYSIS!!!!

One suggestion from a friend of mine is you find a pumping group who can readily announced the exact day and termed it will happened.. sadly to say i don't have that.. ;D ;D ;D ;D

Since this crypto world of our generation is a decentralized one.. whether you are an expert in trading only a PREDICTIVE ANALYSIS can be done... no one can control the market unless one person HODL / HOLDING plenty of specific token (those are whales). meaning even those who HODL much is likely waiting for the right opportunity along the way before selling, but for those who HODL much less are HOLDING it also and others are selling it promptly just to get back the capital they spent..

that's only is based on my experiences.. but i am willing to look after your thought about it, also for me learn new things in this area.. thank you!!

Holding your coins is a perfect strategy, when the market is down it protects you from selling your coins from a very bad price, and when the market is up it protects you from selling your coins when the bull market is only beginning, the only problem with holding your coins is that some people set goals that are unrealistic, like all of those people that want the price of bitcoin to reach 1 million in the next years, but if you set a realistic goal you will eventually sell your coins for a lot more than what you bought them.

What could be the other possible way to escape the trap of declining prices when you own coins that are loosing value? Of course you cannot sell them for that would be a loss of money. All you can do is to hold the coins till the market returns. This is a very common perception and not a new concept. Majority of the people exercise this strategy in the property business and keep intact to their plots and pieces of lands when the price is down and enter the market upon appreciation in the price.

I think HODL was a good strategy for 2017, when everything was growing. However currently you need to adjust your trading system and to be prepared for both mussive bullish and bearish runs. That's my idea.

This is what i also think of, what if holding was just as effective as the year of 2017 and not this 2018 because everyone is playing safe with their assets? For me holding is good in a long run or long term holding making your cryptocurrency more valuable when you bought it. Bear market is a good time for holding since no one would ever sell their coins on a low price unless being needed.

Sometimes in investment  we must face the difficulties or risk in order to become successfull.actualy there are saying a words of wisdom "No pain No Gain"  so in my own perception in this words that in order to become a successfull investor we must take the risk or otherwise holding is part of saving our capital thats going to loosing,even though its not advisable,so payback when the market is going back to normal situation or bullish  market would implemented soon,

I think the only cryptocurrency worth HODL is Bitcoin, and other altcoins are more suitable for short-term trading, because the altcoin is very easy to collapse!
Well ETH was once counted for long term investment when the market was green and there was a rising trend in the prices. Bitcoin now is exactly the same it was then. It has the same status regardless of depreciation in value. And even now, ETH is preferred for the future because it is believed that in the future, ETH will recover as the market takes a warm twist because the status of ETH is down just because of the down price.

In my very own experienced there is no good outcome when you HODL too much.
First of all do you know what HODL means?
HODL is used when referring to hold the cryptocurrency rather than selling it.

Say that to early adopters! Say that to the ones who bought bitcoin for couple cents and hodl them trough very rough times, say that to them if you can come close to them now. Trading isn`t for everyone, even thou people think it is, that`s why most people lose money and coins in trading. Look at that in a simple way, if you trade you risk to lose a lot, if you hodl you are investor that have time for waiting, there are risks, but if you have main coins risk is lowered. And if anyone think that traders do trade with all of their coins you are very wrong, experienced traders have something on a side for hodling, and they have amount for trading!
It has been known for a very long time that holding your investments works very well when the market is going up, there have been many studies about the subject and those that held their investments for longs period of time benefited a lot more than those that traded their portfolios, it is true that in theory trading can produce better results but almost no one can get the results needed to be more profitable than the strategy of holding your coins.

Not everything is bullshit, if you can hold the right coin then surely you will earn benefit, but if you just hold the coins that do not have potential in the future, then your patience during this time will not produce good results. So try to hold only on coins that have great potential in the future.

I think the "Hodling" technique is not the main problem because you can see that it works on some coins especially to the famous ones like bitcoin and ethereum. I think the cause of your upset is not good coin selection, you should first analyze its potentials before investing in. Well, I can't blame you because you are not a fortune teller who could predict the future and besides, losses are simply hard to escape.

Better luck next time sir and I hope you'll become successful by that time.

HODL is the best when you are at loss, always keep in your mind that you will lose only when you sell, but if you HODL that to sell at loss, it is still the best, you are still winner. For me, HODL is really the best specially when you bought so many coins.
Thats right if the market conditions deteriorate and you don't want to panic and sell, then to avoid loss is dont to enter the market
and see the bleak market conditions, hold it for the next few months, I'm sure it can avoid you from losing

HODL is one of the strategies that makes a profit if it is used correctly. If you do not understand how to select coins for HODL then this does not mean that the strategy does not work.

Before you HODL you should know the background of the coin, and you should know the risk of HODL. If you are a new player I recommend to not HODL while the price is high because if your analysis is not convincing you will regret it.

by holding the coins that we hold with the market conditions being broken again it is better than selling them at a low price that imposes losses on us, and if we hold it until the market rises then we can be spared and we can benefit...

Holding works on some coins. Not all. If you hold a brand new coin and they take off after a year or two and then you sell it you would have made lot more profit. It's not always bad to hold. You hold coins that are long term investments.

Always pay attention to coinmarketcap.com and also news from the coin community that you will HODL, don't be easily provoked by pump and dump because when you have been lured with pump and dump you will be loss if you miss the moment to sell.

When you buy cheap that high price market you will definitely sell and this case does not hold preference. But when the market price is low that you buy high prices. I think it is advisable to keep. Depending on the market situation and strategy you have implemented.

Now, how about to those people who buy bitcoin from $19k last year and still they are holding their bitcoin because they are still waiting some progress with the price of bitcoin?

HOLD - the concept is very different, maybe it's a year, half a year or several years. The player himself decides whether it is time for him to sell the coin: if the price is arranged, you can sell, and if for example it falls heavily, but there is growth to recovery, you can buy it on the fall.

What you wrote is totally stupid. Who told you that those who hold crypto currencies does not know how to trade? People hold crypto currencies as a long term invest. Trading is whole different thing. Trading is associated with high risk and you will need to keep yourself updated about the market 24/7. Where as, holding is less risky (assuming its a top currency, not some random shit coin) since it in the long run the price will eventually increase.

I agree, with what you say, and that is not wrong, even though in reality, every time there is a large decline, in cryptocurrency prices, panic often occurs. And finally many suffer losses, because they sell it when the price is low. So from that, I dare say, 'HODL' is the only development strategy, which is reasonable and best, to review most of our crypto investment. Basically, it's just a variation of the classic "buy and hold" approach.

Some of my friends don't know much about trading or knowledge about cryptocurrency, but they are interested in crypto and ask me if there is a chance for them to join. So I suggest to them to use some money to buy bitcoin only and focus with bitcoin, and they agree. They start in the two years ago when the price is not too high as now. After they invest, they didn't do anything and only get work in their real life, and the last year, they came to me and said that they are making a lot of profit from bitcoin and they already cash out their investment. This story means that we could be an investor and only hold bitcoin without trading and we can keep the bitcoin for a long time, and my friends already get their success. So if you want to hold, make sure you know what coin you want to hold and for how long you want to hold the coin, don't panic when something wrong happens and stays calm because, in the future, you can get the benefits of your investment.

HODL or trading depends on the current market situation, the token/coin which you are holding & time period that is a short, mid or long term, so you should think smart when to hold and when to trade. Sometimes HODL and can bring you a lot of profits and sometimes you can get it by trading. If you are losing the initial amount of your buy I think no one is willing to sell its crypto in a loss he will wait for the right time and keep holding till the price goes up unless a person needs money urgently.

Your experiences aren't all experiences existed in the world. Many experiences are out there and it looks some works for others, but not for you. it's okay advising someone based from your experiences but trading in a short term is also not a good choice if you're always losing rather than earning. It's sad to say this, long term is safer although you earn a very little amount of money, yet it is still a profit. What's good if you're only getting loss day by day. This doesn't mean that short term is no good at all. No, I just need you to keep in mind that nothing is easy.

Of direction, purchasing and sales can also regularly say more money, despite the fact that each cash isn't always continually approximately discount. moreover, pinnacle-rated organizations are attractive because you can not have enough money much less, which may be sold and bought. So, because I do now not have your opinion on others it's in all likelihood terrible for some humans.

That's right. You basically can't do anything like selling at that point because selling at a loss shouldn't be an option. As I've always said, hodling is best applied when one bought and it starts going lower. I've seen how it usually turn out. The crypto you sell would go kaboom in a bull run and you end up hosting a pity and regret party.

Most people do not have the patience to hold their coins anymore, they think that they will be able to make money trading or by investing for the short term but anyone that has been here for the long term knows that is not the case so all of those people that choose to sell their coins for a bad price right now are probably going to regret doing it when the market begins to recover.

Most people do not have the patience to hold their coins anymore, they think that they will be able to make money trading or by investing for the short term but anyone that has been here for the long term knows that is not the case so all of those people that choose to sell their coins for a bad price right now are probably going to regret doing it when the market begins to recover.
Some of them might playing for a while after learning the market sway, but for sure most of investors who believes what crypto can bring to them
are still holding patiently, knowing that in any moment the market will rise back again, we should analyze well before taking any decision, short with
small gains or long with very decent earnings, but what important the most is we do play without any loses from our initial capital.

HODL is one of the most applied strategies as it helps reduce the risk of huge losses of assets. Furthermore, I think it needs proper timing and planning when to HODL, trade or invest as we also need to be on the look out on the market condition before deciding what to do next. It's better to study the market and learn on how to play the game wisely and strategically inorder to survive and be productive in the world of cryptocurrency.

Of course, you should not keep the project tokens for a very long time, it will not always be able to develop steadily, you just need to periodically fix the profit

It is not advisable to sell when the market is going down, because there are many people here who bought the coins at the high value, so instead of selling those for the loss, it is good to hold until the market starts recovering.
Indeed! Market keeps on fluctuating so it's very important to learn where to position our strategies in a way that it works for us or if does not at least we learn from it. It's only us who can define the strategy that is effective and that we have to stick to it. Never depend on others as there strategy may or may not work for you. Market may be down for now but let's stay positive that it can potentially recover.
