Hold and Hodl have the same meaning of holding or not selling coins in a bad market situation. Hodl is used only in terms of crypto trading. the history that I know the word hodl comes from the wrong people say hodl at the time of trading crypto.

HOLD and HODL are actually the same, I do not know where HODL comes from in the world crypto, but definitely HOLD is one of the strategies to invest in crypto world, by buying altcoin and in the long run waiting for altcoin to rise

Can anyone clarify what this term means? I was wondering if it should really be spelt as "HOLD" or the meaning of "HODL" is really crypto-related. I already tried searching threads that explain this but was unsuccessful. I was very curious since I began reading discussions in bitcointalk and I usually see this term but I just understand it to mean 'hold' which means don't sell yet your coins. Please correct my misunderstanding if any. Thanks for your time.

I don't really know if HODL it is an abbreviation or just such a slang word. But what I know really it is that HODL has become a credo for many users and many of them have become rich because of crypto holding.

“HODL” was originally a typo which has now popularly earned the status of a humorous. The very first time the term HODL appeared on the Bitcoin talk forum was in 2013 and came from a member named GameKyuubi under the thread “I AM HODLING”.Since then, this misspelled term became very popular in the Bitcoin and cryptocurrency world. Whenever a person says in a conversation that he/she is hodling or suggests to hodl, it means that they believe their coin will be profitable one day, if not today.

It means none other than hold. However, hodl means going against the predefined rules and being a rebel with the mentality and having a faith in this innovation. Bitcoin and blockchain gained momentum over the years and now it is growing day by day but still, sometimes things go wrong and market shows lowest levels and at this stage, it becomes more important to have faith on the values and Hodling our investments.

For me HODL has the same signification as Hold it means that even if the Price of Your tokens Goes Down You Will not Panic Sell them for à low Price. Instead You Will wait for the tokens Price to go up Before Selling, so basically holding is Waiting for the Price to go up. But i don.t from Where hodl was used for the First Time instead of Hold.

In Bitcointalk, you can visit and read this https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=375643.0
The expression HODL came from thread linked above.

Hodl is like the symbol of an organization, maybe it is not floating so you will not find out.
Or maybe you have mistaken Hodl for hold coin.
If TradeCoin is a short-term investment, then HoldCoin is simply a long-term investment, meaning choosing a coin that you feel is potential, promising "longevity" and keeping it for a while. long (from about 2.3.5 months to several years) and until the price of coin grows to the right level of your target, you will sell profitably. However, not all hold will be profitable, if you do not choose the right coin then the probability of loss is very high.

It's about the situation when you have 1 btc for example and you still keep it in your wallet despite the fact that currency drops.
You just wait for TOTHEMOON and hodl, hodl, hodl..

HODL is actually the wrong spelling. It means the same as HOLD. You just need to know that it is just a word that lives in the cryptocurrency market!

There will be a simple way of saying like this is to sell what you have and keep what you need. That's my way of saying "Hold".

HODL is a misspelled version of HOLD. It became a meme on forums.

Give me a break. You know what it means and you also know that all you have to do is put the term in a search engine and have your answer immediately.

Simply put, HODL comes from the word "HOLD" with the wrong spelling but it's intentional.
which means not selling coins that we have or still holding coins that we have even when prices fall.

So far, that's my understanding of the term HODL.

To differentiate it without getting into the technicalities for the beginners out there, trading or day trading is short-term investments and the accepted term for long-term investments in the market is called holding

Hodl is for hold. I think it is a crypto related word. Because I have not seen this before in any other field.

HODL = Hold on for dear life!

In this volatile crypto market you gotta keep patience and not panic when price goes up and so whenever the volatile market does some yo-yo, just HODL your coins and patience until it bounces back again Wink

hodl is holding coins when the price drops. hodl is very important to reduce losses. when prices drop dramatically, never pan sell.
