Hodl to the moon!

What sets apart cryptocurrencies from a downward-facing scam is the lack of promises that your money will quadruple in a short span of time. Investing in cryptocurrencies generally takes time and patience for you to see your money grow clearly. It does not magically surge whenever it likes, and a lot of factors influence it for it to soar.

A lot of traders nowadays see cryptocurrencies as a quick way to get rich. This could be due to news of how some who bought early are now millionaires, and they also want that kind of luck. However, they have missed an important fact that some simply can’t do, hodling as much as they could.

There’s a reason why some traders think twice when it comes to hodling. Sadly, it is rooted in a mindset of wasting time keeping their crypto for its slow-moving price point. They lose patience waiting for the market to reach a level they expect for them to be satisfied with the project’s performance. But this should not be it.

Every trader should understand that the great projects we see nowadays took time before they reached such heights. It did not acquire its market cap over a few months of innovations and improving the project’s technology, but it took years before it achieved such a feat. This is where the importance of hodling for the long term enters the picture.
