❓Why HODL in a Crash?

The crypto winter is here. The crypto market runs in cycles; periods of capitulation and periods of accumulation. Many crypto traders in the industry profess the "buy low, sell high" technique; however, this may be easier said than done, since the majority of users do not have the technical skills required to identify these major "points of inflection." Some investors become HODLers, which means that they invest in certain crypto assets for the long run. This practice implies that some users HODL through the ups and downs of the market.

We asked the community why they HODL during a market crash. This is what they had to say:

  • Time in the market beats timing the market. - u/joejitsu_crypto (Reddit).
  • Because you don't know when it's going to end. - u/hsifuevwivd (Reddit).
  • Hold and buy more lower or sell at bear market rallies. Never panic especially if you believe in the project. - u/winstonchill (Reddit).
  • You don't know when and [where]. Plus you want to make that big $ and timing the market isn't it. Buy hodl, cheaper buy and hodl. - u/IBesto (Reddit).
  • The best investors are typically those who forgot they invested, unless you think the assets will never ever recover then holding is not a bad strategy. - u/Puzzleheaded_Ad928 (Reddit).

DeFiner: A place to lend, borrow, earn, stake, and HODL, regardless of market conditions.

🙌Welcome Qianru: New Marketing Intern

Hello! My name is Qianru Li. I'm so excited to join Definer this summer as a Marketing Intern. I'm a first-year master's student at the Eller College of Management in the Management Information Systems Master Program. I love to experience new things, so I became interested in Web 3.0. I believe this technology has immense potential for both businesses and end-users.

I like watching YouTube videos to learn about the latest K-Pop dance moves during my spare time. Also, I like to paint, cook, and travel. I am very happy to be a part of the Definer team this summer!
