Haven’t seen the word “HODL” online much recently have you?
Looking at Google Trends, HODL is going out of style like a beanie baby store doused with gasoline right next to a dumpster fire.

Peak HODL was right around December 2017. HODLers were HODLing hard, telling all the haters just to HODL and not FODL.
HODL mania helped produce a ton of funny memes and videos, I want to share some with you because I’m nice.

So where are we at in the timeline for HODL, I’d say we are in the “Trough of disillusionment” period.
Just like a man cannot be brave unless he has fear, a man cannot truly HODL until their is real fear in the market.
For now, just HODL it.
And if you're getting antsy, HODL while you BUIDL.
