‘Don’t act on FOMO! DYOR and decide if you want to HODL.’ A Glossary of Crypto Terminology | #crypto #glossary

The Crypto Community surely does use a lot of slang. In this list you will find the most used words and their definitions.

Some words like bull & bear come out of prior market vernaculars, but with the modern emergence of cryptocurrencies it had to invent its own expressions and terms (while other terms were invented to define its characteristics e.g. HODL (which isn’t in the list below, for some reason)). Here’s the list – how many do you know? – as gathered at Ibby Benali’s website:

Altcoin
Bearish
Blockchain
BTC
Bullish
Core Wallet
Circulating supply
Cross-chain
Dapps
DYOR
Encryption
Bitcoin Exchange or Crypto Exchange
FOMO
FUD
Hard Cap
Hard Fork
ICO
Market Cap
Max. Supply
Miner
Miner reward
Node
Public Key
Private Key
Satoshi
