HODL: "Hold on for dear life". This term is used by crypto enthusiasts denoting a long-term approach to cryptocurrency investing.
✨ The problem
One of the major problem that people face while investing into crypto is that they cannot hold the crypto currencies for long. If someone is an early investor and invests in cryptocurrencies then the main problem for them would be to keep their mind stable to hold it for long aka keep their mind stable enough to HODL it. The instability of the crypto market is the main reason of people's panic due to which they widraw the crypos they bought. The most safe investment strategy for crypto is to HODL them. If cryptos can be hold for long time then only they give exponential returns. But since the panic comes into the path so, it becomes tuff to HODL the cryptos for long (specially for the early investors).
👀 The Solution
HodlBank is the solution to this problem. Here's how it works:
- Transfer your ETHEREUM (faucet from rinkeby testnet) to HODL in the Bank.
- Set the time upto which you want to HODL
- Do a successful HODL
- Come Back after that specified time and get your ETHEREUMs back

🧐 Future Plans ?!
I do have future plans for this application. Maybe sometime I will deploy it on the ethereum mainnet and people can then HODL real ethereums. Currently, you can only HODL ethereums of the rinkeby testnet. Feel free to share your thoughts regarding this.
