Buidl (pronounced BID-el) is a slang term that originated in the Ethereum community to encourage others to build, especially in the face of complacency, noise, and distraction. It’s a direct response to the slang term and internet meme “hodl” (pronounced HOD-el) used in cryptocurrency communities when referring to holding a cryptocurrency rather than selling it. The origin of the term hodl can be traced back to a Bitcoin Forum when an apparently inebriated user posted a message with a typo in the subject line that read “I AM HODLING”.
In crazy times, put your head down and build something cool. Ignore the noise and follow your nose. If it matters to you, it matters. Chris Anderson, CEO of 3D Robotics
