Good to have them all at one place. Being relatively new here, I had to search some of them to understand the posters. I can give you a couple of them more:

AKA   = Also known as
FWIW = For what it's Worth
IOW = In other Words
MMW = Mark my Words

Thanks for suggest.  Your given abbreviations has been added on my list. It's better to make in one list.


It's better to make in one list.
I'm afraid it was already created as Terminolgy thread, by yogi Tongue

BTW good work OP.



Oh, in was unable to find. By the way, it look totally different post and formats. I never copied from his post. Anyway thanks for remind. I just try to list thoes are used mostly.
You forgot something OP(Original Poster) Grin , maybe add this abbreviation on your list :
FYI = For Your Information
HODL = Hold On for Dear Life
Added.

I think there are 2 short forms which are popular but did not make it to original
 Terminolgy thread, by yogi  or this thread.

SMT => Spam Mega Thread.
SMAS blacklist => Signatute Manager against Spam blacklist

SMAS Blacklist is a good initiative by Lauda, lutpin and Yahoo. I guess if all of the Campaign Manager start making this list and sharing it our all spam problems will be solved.

Since you added the RSI (Relative Strength Index) then you can also add MACD (Moving Average Convergence Divergence) which it is an indicator the same as RSI that is in your list. You add BTC (Bitcoin) as some might get fooled/tricked by the abbreviation of bitcointalk (BCT), BCT and BTC..

This is mainly useful for non-native English speakers, as it is easy for native English speakers to understand these short abbreviations, which are all composed of the first big letters of the original words, but for non-native English speakers to understand accurately the meaning of these short abbreviations may need to know which words they are composed of.

most of them are not used on forum, it is easier to type them in google than to search through the forum or find the topic.
also, what do these people with all that time that they have when they use these shorteners?  Grin

A few very well known ones I haven't seen anybody mention here. Though some of them are acronyms but still commonly used in forums.

BTFD = Buy the fucking dip

REKT = from wrecked, or completely destroyed

WHALE = Somebody with a lot of crypto, not necessarily though, a very rich person

SATS = short for Satoshis



By the way, there is a little typo in the very first word - Defination  Cool

I think to my own best knowledge, the most popular and most used one's are:


Fear of Uncertainty and Doubt
DYOR  Do Your Own Research
TA   Technical Analysis
ICO  Initial Coin Offering
MEW  MyEtherWallet
TS  Total Supply
BTT  BitcoinTalk
TC  Total Circulation
FOMO Fear of Missing Out

HODL= Hold On for Dear Life
Uh, for newbies' sake, you should link this thread to the actual "roots" of the term HODL. <- Link to the historical thread "I AM HODLING" (Checkout the gained Merit of that post)

It wasn't actually abbreviated before, just a typo that became a MEME and have been passed through the years.
Honestly, I didn't know where "Hold on for Dear Life" came from, I'm just altering the word hold as hodl (in all caps), just for aesthetics or fun.

Up for newcomers

Perhaps add some explanation or brief information about these technical terms? or add URL that redirect the word to it's definition.

DT = Default Trusted. - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=211858.0
PoS = Proof Of Stake. - https://www.investopedia.com/terms/p/proof-stake-pos.asp
PoW = Proof of Work. - https://www.investopedia.com/terms/p/proof-work.asp
SMAS blacklist = Signatute Manager Against Spam blacklist - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1545652.0
ERC20= Ethereum Request for Comment ( 20 is a unique ID number). - https://www.investopedia.com/news/what-erc20-and-what-does-it-mean-ethereum/
ICO = Intial Coin Offering. = https://www.investopedia.com/terms/i/initial-coin-offering-ico.asp
ANN = Announcements. = Short for Announcement which is commonly used on newly launched coin, you will mostly see this abbrv. word around Alternate cryptocurrencies sections
SMT = Spam Mega Thread. - Threads around 'Economics/Speculation' section that has more than 100 pages with nonsensical/spam comments.
i.e.
Is it better to save money or invest it? « 1 2 ... 713 714 »
Bitcoin or gold? « 1 2 ... 581 582 »
The future of the paper money « 1 2 ... 285 286 »
MEW = MyEtherWallet. - MyEtherWallet (our friends call us MEW) is a free, client-side interface helping you interact with the Ethereum blockchain. more

Are these dedicated to this forum, or are you used to using it like this?
Many of the abbreviations on the OP are/can be used in other social media chats and forums,abbs such as lol,ffs,brb,smh etc
But there are so many abbreviations that originated from the forum,and are 90 percent used only only the forum as they are peculiar to it,abbs such as hodl,fomo,whale,Ico,Op,Hq etc
Get yourself acquainted with most of the forum abbreviations,so you wouldn't be "lost" when others use them
