“HODL” Bitcoin exchange fund

A new change shows that the investment company has joined the American company Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), it appears that the exchange fund will be listed under the ticker symbol “HODL.” Of course, the product still needs to be approved by the regulatory authority.

HODL is a well-known term in the crypto community. It’s a play on the English word ‘hold’ and has its origins in a 2013 Bitcoin forum post that accidentally used the term instead of “hold.” Since then, it has become a popular crypto term that stands for “Wait for dear life”. Investors use this phrase to describe a strategy of buying digital assets and never selling them.

Analysts are very happy with VanEck’s choice. Nate Geraci, president of consulting firm The ETF Store, noticed that people familiar with crypto will like the ticker, except boomers who don’t understand it.

According to Bloomberg ETF analyst Eric Balchunas The choice of ticker symbol is different from the “boring boomer decisions” made by giants like BlackRock and Fidelity. “Who knows, maybe it’s smart to differentiate here. “In addition, VanEck specializes in niches and has a solid retail base,” writes Balchunas.
