You recognize this situation, do you?

If you are new to Bitcoin and the cryptocurrencies, you may not know what any of these words mean.

You must have noticed people misspelling “HOLD” as “HODL” even when they have an auto-correct feature on their phones or computers. Have you?

It’s the same with CHOYNA.

The reason why you’ll here Choyna mentioned is because China stands as the country where the most Bitcoin trading and mining activity occurs. The term actually emerged from a bitcoin trader called “Flibbr”, who turned the phrase in a way to mock US President Donald Trump.
