What Is a Bag Holder?  

A closely-related slang term is a "bag holder," an individual who holds a significant amount of a particular cryptocurrency. This person holds a lot of crypto despite a significant price decline. Bag holders may have bought the asset at a high price and held onto it even though the market has moved against them. They continue to hold because they believe the cryptocurrency will eventually recover. They usually experience significant losses because they don’t sell their bags on time. 

Bag holders are often seen as optimists on the one hand and naive on the other hand. However, it is important to remember that they take unnecessary risks. The term "don't marry your bags" refers to the idea of not holding onto a crypto asset for too long. Therefore, bag holders are advised to monitor their investments regularly and make informed decisions about when to buy, sell or hold.
