The word is now used in all corners of cryptocurrency and even in trading, representing an investment philosophy – to ‘Hold On for Dear Life’. HODLING is now seen as one of the most effective investor strategies – hold on through the ups and downs and over time you will gain the most benefit.

- About $HODL
HODL is a safe and stable way to generate passive income – simply hold $HODL tokens and gain significant annual growth from reflections, BNB rewards, staking, farming, and more!
- $HODL Rewards
Rewards are the bread and butter of $HODL with BNB rewards available to holders every 7-days. Investors can take their rewards from the reward pool which is powered by transaction taxes on buys, sells, and transfers of the token, plus revenue generated from CEX/DEX listings, NFTs, swaps fees from our DEX, betting fees and more. To-date, $HODL is the highest paying #BNB reward token in history with over 20,000 BNB paid to its holders! The amount of rewards each investor can claim from the reward pool is based on the percentage held of the entire supply of $HODL.
- Stacking $HODL rewards
Investors can activate reward stacking via the claim page to build up their rewards before claiming to ensure the rewards exceed the network costs (gas fees) you pay when claiming. This is especially useful to small investors but helps all investors access more rewards with lower gas fees (note – a maximum of 0.1 BNB can be stacked)!
- Claiming $HODL rewards
To claim your rewards, simply visit the claim page on our website, connect a wallet carrying $HODL, and select how you want to receive your rewards, be it as BNB, reinvestment into $HODL or $HODLX, or a combination of both. Once you select your reward, the tokens and or BNB will be automatically sent to your wallet! Once collected the claim period will be reset for another 7-days. Note - As a bonus, if you claim your rewards as 100% in $HODL your next collection will be set for 1 day earlier at 6 days instead of the usual 7!
- $HODL Burn Lottery
1% of all $HODL transactions (buy, sell, or transfer of $HODL) goes to a lottery pool and if you buy more than 7 Billion $HODL via PancakeSwap or the HODL DEX you automatically get a ticket for each lottery draw. The drawn winner gets 70% of all the tokens collected on each round, with the remaining 30% being burned to further deflate the circulating supply of $HODL. The results are shown and can be requested by command (/lottery) in the official Telegram group.
- $HODL Reward Claim period
If you forget to claim your BNB, don’t worry - you can claim at any time after the completion of your 7-day reward cycle. Once you’ve claimed, this claim cycle will reset for another 7-days from the point at which you collect, so if you want to make as many collections per year as possible, try to collect at the time your rewards become available. Note - As a bonus, if you claim your rewards as 100% in $HODL your next collection will be set for 1 day earlier at 6 days instead of the usual 7!
- Utility of $HODL
The primary utility of $HODL is to provide passive income for its holders. $HODL is the market-leading BNB reward token and is powered through smart transaction taxes, plus revenue from exchanges, products and services. A regular and stable source of passive income is one of the greatest needs we all share and our utility as a token is to provide a solution to that need.
- How to buy $HODL
There are several ways to buy $HODL, however, if you want to access the BNB rewards and reflections you will need to buy via PancakeSwap (12% slippage) or via our own DEX hodlx.exchange. For those who prefer to purchase tokens on centralized exchanges, you can view all the exchanges we are listed on and the specifics around fees and benefits. If you purchase $HODL via a CEX, you can transfer your tokens to a wallet like SafePal or TrustWallet to access rewards and reflections.
- How to sell $HODL
Selling your tokens relates to the liquidity pool in which your tokens are held. If you have your tokens on PancakeSwap then you can swap your tokens for BNB or BUSD via PancakeSwap or our own exchange HODLX (hodlx.exchange). The tax on sales is 10% so you will need to apply a slippage of 12%. If you hold $HODL tokens on one of our exchanges, you will need to sell them on the exchange in which they are held or transfer them to a wallet like TrustWallet or SafePal to then sell them via PancakeSwap.
- Exchanges $HODL is on
$HODL is listed on a good number of centralized and decentralized exchanges. You can view which exchanges and the trading fees etc on our dedicated ‘exchanges’ page, found in the ‘$HODL’ menu. By being listed on multiple exchanges, $HODL can reach new audiences all around the world and generate funds through trades and taxes for our BNB reward pool. HODL also has its own DEX with an impressive range of staking and farming pools with all swap fees going to the project instead of a third-party such as PancakeSwap.
- Launch of $HODL
$HODL v1 launched on 7 May, 2021. The v1 contract migrated to $HODL 2.0 on 22 July, 2021 where there was a manual migration period of 3 months. A new leadership team took over in September 2021 and migrated all holders of $HODL 2.0 on 11 Nov 2021 to an upgradable contract, with all holders of $HODL 2.0 being airdropped the new token – ‘$HODL’. The migration to an upgradable contract means we can further develop the contract without needing to migrate again. Our token name and ticker is ‘HODL’ and our contract address is 0x0E9766dF73973abCfEDDE700497c57110ee5c301.
- Previous versions of $HODL
$HODL v1 holders (launched 7 May 2021) had to manually migrate to $HODL 2.0 between 22 July 2021 and September 2021. If you hold $HODL v1 now, unfortunately, you are no longer able to migrate to the latest token. If you held $HODL 2.0, you will have automatically been sent the new token via airdrop. If the token isn’t automatically showing in your wallet, you can manually add the new contract address and it will display. Simply add the contract address to your wallet (0x0E9766dF73973abCfEDDE700497c57110ee5c301) using 9 decimal places and if you still have any queries, you can contact one of our admins on Telegram.
- Stability and safety of $HODL
With $HODL you receive income benefits simply by holding HODL! Our doxxed team works around the clock to supply more revenue to fill the reward pool that fuels the sustainable passive income that you draw from as a reward. We’ve worked hard to ensure our contract is secure with excellent security ratings too! In addition, the team is KYC’d and listed on platforms including StaySAFU and Bubblemaps to give investors more tools to check information on liquidity, honeypot checks, contract ratings, contract scanning, and a breakdown of projects wallets and a bubble-mapped overview of transactions by addresses.
- $HODL sustainability
Unlike other reward tokens, which are simply sustained by trading volume alone, HODL has established multiple revenue streams that fill the reward pool. This allows for maximum sustainability even when market conditions are bearish. HODL will still be there as a reliable source of passive income for many years to come.
- About $HODLX
$HODLX is a key token within the HODL ecosystem that superbly compliments $HODL and our NFT range. With no taxes, $HODLX is ideal for day traders and those wanting to stake and farm to earn $HODL, $HODLX, NFTs. Other utilities of $HODLX include being the currency of our betting games and in the future of our play to earn gaming and poker.

- $HODLX supply
$HODLX is both inflationary and deflationary with all $HODLX rewards on staking and farming minted by the contract and buy backs and burns of $HODLX ran to counteract this inflation. With the contract minting the $HODLX it distributes as rewards, there is no maximum supply.
- Taxes on $HODLX
There are no taxes on $HODLX, making $HODLX the perfect coin for day traders. For those who earn $HODLX through staking, farming, and referrals you can swap it for other tokens or stable coins – tax-free! By adding a tax-free token to our ecosystem we can offer benefits in our play to earn gaming and poker – both set to launch in either late-2022 or early 2023.

- Plans for $HODLX

There is a budget and strong plan in place for marketing the token to bring in new investors all around the world as the DEX develops and adds both more utility and strong innovation.

- About HODLX DEX
HODLX.Exchange provides yield farming and staking pools for $HODL, $HODLX and HODL Hands NFTs along with a generous referral scheme. The platform supports token swaps for $HODL, $HODLX and $BNB with all fees paid to the liquidity providers and swap fees to the HODL treasury to help develop the project. HODLX.Exchange is totally decentralized with all liquidity provided by investors, making rug pulls impossible.
- Plans for the DEX
The platform will be integrated into the upcoming HODL App to provide quick and easy access to over 15 ways to earn. The platform will list passive income tokens and ‘to earn’ tokens to expand our community’s ability to access more ways to earn.
To stake a token, visit HODLX.exchange and visit either farms, staking or specialist pools. You can view the APR and APY feeds along with the return on investment calculator to make the best decision for you. Pick the pool you want to enter and click ‘enable contract’ then select the number of tokens you would like to stake. There is no risk with staking and you can access your earnings and withdraw your earnings at any time.
- Yield Farming
There are several yield farming pools available on HODLX.Exchange. You can farm liquidity tokens you create and earn strong APRs on a continual basis. Rewards are paid in $HODLX along with swap fees of 0.17%, paid proportionately to all liquidity providers. To farm, you first need to ‘add liquidity’ – selecting two currencies to pair from $HODL, $HODLX and BNB. Once you’ve created your LP pairing, you need to go to the ‘Farm’ page and select a farm to enter. ‘Enable the farm’ with a small gas fee of around $0.50, then select ‘Stake LP’ to start earning the APR as indicated. To claim rewards at any time, simply click ‘harvest’.
- Risks of farming
Environment loss is one of the most common and unique risks that are likely to happen in favorable circumstances. From a practical perspective, an impermanent loss is a net difference between the value of two cryptocurrency assets in a liquidity pool-based automated market maker. It can happen by simply holding the assets in a cryptocurrency wallet. To compensate this, liquidity providers earn fees of 0.17% of all swaps proportionate to the amount of liquidity each provides. To learn more about impermanent loss, see the link in the ‘Staking’ menu.
- Referral scheme
Simply visit the referrals page and connect your wallet to get a unique referral code. This code can be given out to friends and family and you will earn 1% of the value of all trades made in the form of HODLX.
HODL Bet features two fun betting games that use $HODLX. With Coin Toss you can bet on heads or tails and double your bet if you win. With Rangefinder, you select a range between 1-100 and if it lands in your range you win with the smaller ranges giving bigger odds. A small fee is applied to all bets and these funds are used to develop and grow the project.
- Gaming and play to earn
HODL Games is a key part of our ecosystem and we will be adding NFT integration and play to earn benefits to our current 4 mini-games before making a fifth game, solitaire.
