If you have actually been browsing Crypto memes then you should have encountered the word, ‘HODL’. However, where did it originate from?

HODL is a slang in the crypto community for holding the crypto instead of offering it. It came from a December 2013 post on the Bitcoin Forum message board by an obviously intoxicated user who published with a typo in the topic, “I AM HODLING”.
