2018年,加密货币行业派生了哪些新词?

过去十年,科技的发展给我们带来了很多新词汇。

每年,韦氏词典都要新增很多新成员,比如selfie、TL:DR、bingeable和比特币等等。

这些词本来并不存在,但是随着使用频率不断增加,也逐渐变成了我们日常生活的一部分。

在今天这篇文章中,我们就简单罗列几个有关区块链和加密货币的新名词。

Cryptocurrencer

这个词指代所有与加密货币产业相关的人,比如交易员、加密货币持有者、开发人员或业余爱好者。

Cryptopreneur

这个词是加密货币(cryptocurrency)和企业家(entrepreneur)的合成词,专指参与建立加密货币或基于区块链业务的人士。

Cryptonaut / cryptonaught

千万不要把这个词与同名的硬币投资组合跟踪器混淆。这其实是cryptocurrencer和宇航员(astronaut)两个词的合成词。这类人士专门探索不太受关注的加密货币领域。

Cryptomonnaies

其实,法语中并没有加密货币(cryptocurrency)这个词。所以,法国人一般将加密货币称之为cryptomonnaies,也就是“加密的钱”。所以说,这其实是个法语词。

Disruptrepreneur

与“cryptopreneur”一样,这是个破坏(distrupt)和企业家(entrepreneur)的混合词。近些年来,似乎每天都有创企宣布要“颠覆整个加密行业”,所以我们觉得有必要给这些人一个专门的称呼,也就是distrupreneur。

HODL

说到加密货币新词,就不得不提hodl这个词。这其实不是什么新鲜词,它就是一个hold这个词的错误拼写。不过,在加密货币领域里人们就喜欢这么用。如果有人告诉你hodl你的加密货币,意思就是说要继续持有,不要把它们花出去或者兑现。而相应的,做出持有行为的这些人也就被称为hodler。

无论你是经验丰富的交易商,还是刚刚进入加密货币领域,2019年你都有可能会见到或用到这些词。兴许有一天,韦氏词典还会把这些词也都收录进去。让我们拭目以待吧!

 

Technology is responsible for literally thousands of new words that have been added to our daily lexicon in the last decade. Words like selfie, TL:DR, bingeable, and Bitcoin have all been added to the Merriam-Webster dictionary this year.

All these words started somewhere before being included in the dictionary. Usually, new words are invented in a Shakespearean fashion to best describe something that currently there is no word for. If people start using the newly created word, it might one day make it into the dictionary.

Here at Hard Fork we have coined – get it? – and come across a handful of words this year that, we think, helped us get our points across. But for the sake of transparency, it is blockchain after all, here is our alternative dictionary of cryptocurrency and blockchain terms invented this year.

1. “Cryptocurrencer“: A general term for someone who is involved in cryptocurrency. They could be a trader, a hodler, a developer, or a hobbyist spectator.

2. “Cryptopreneur“: A portmanteau of the words cryptocurrency and entrepreneur. As this combination would suggest, it’s a “cryptocurrencer” is someone involved in setting up a cryptocurrency or blockchain-based business. (See also: disruptrepreneur).

3. “Cryptonaut/cryptonaught”: Not to be confused with the coin portfolio tracker of the same name, consider this a portmanteau of the words cryptocurrencer and astronaut. It’s a special type of cryptocurrencer, one who explores the lesser visited galaxies of the cryptocurrency industry. It’s the one word we wish we had come up with.

4. “Cryptomonnaies“: Ok, we didn’t actually invent this one, but I am sure we were the first English-language blockchain media outlet to use it. As it turns out, the French don’t have a word for cryptocurrency, so they refer to the digital assets as cryptomonnaies; basically it’s crypto-monies, but French. Tres Bien.

5. “Disruptrepreneur“: Like with “cryptopreneur” this is a mash-up of “disrupt” and “entrepreneur.” Every day we seem to see another blockchain company claiming that it will “disrupt [insert industry here] like never before,” and we felt these people needed a name.

6. (Special mention) “HODL“: What kind of list of cryptocurrency terms would be complete without mentioning hodl? None. It needs no explanation because it was a typo that stuck, hodl means hold. If someone tells you to hodl, they’re telling hold on to your coins instead of spending them right away. Someone who hodls is known as a hodler.

Whether you’re a seasoned trader or just a casual hodler, these are the terms you need to be using in 2019. If you do, maybe someday Merriam-Webster will be giving us a call to tell us they made the dictionary… We can dream.
