An "on purpose, kinda" misspelling of "hold" - first coined in the altcoin sphere in 2013 & later said to imply "Hold On for Dear Life". It reinforces the financial concept that you don't sell in a Bear Market. You ride it until the bitter end, or the price comes back up. (Hint: Crypto prices usually comes back up.)

First use reference:
When the trading prices keep dropping embarrassingly low, keep hodling! This isn't Penny Stocks - it will come back up eventually.

Hodl stands for hold on for dear life. This is generally a reference when talking about cryptocurrencies. People will make this reference when they believe that the particular cryptocurrency will have a long term gain. People will also use the term hodling in past tense scenarios.
Jack: I plan to hodl this coin for atleast a year, I believe there will be a long term benefit from holding this.
Miguel: I agree, I have already been hodling for a year now.
