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..
DYOR=Do Your Own Research
JOMO=Joy Of Missing Out
MCAP=Market Capitalization

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
