Definition: HODL

(Hold On for Dear Life) A backronym for the comment "I am hodling," apparently a misspelled post for "I am holding" in a Bitcoin forum in 2013. HODL evolved into slang for not selling a cryptocurrency while it plunges downward in value. #HODLGANG is a Twitter hashtag for holders of cryptocurrencies. See Bitcoin and backronym.
