Eth Hodler is for hodlers - a simple contract that helps holders to lock up their ether.
This contract has no owner and cannot be modified by anyone.

Quote: "This is just silly. Do people lack so much willpower that they have to
handicap themselves to have no access to your ETH? What if you lock it today
and it shoots to $200 (sic) in a week? What then? The last thing you want is
have NO ACCESS to your funds, whether crypto or fiat or whatever.
How about, just hold. There, problem solved.". - Reddit /user/Chop13

Well, hopefully Chop13 held.

But wait, there are actually some other features:

Each deposit to the Eth Hodler locks your ether and issues you with HODL tokens. These tokens
are then used to make a withdrawal and burned once the withdrawal is processed.

A normal withdrawal would take ~30 days to process, costing only the gas fee.
Should the holder want to withdraw their deposit early, they can, but
they must pay a %1 fee. The fees will be added to a fee-pot. Holders can claim
a chunk from the fee-pot, see the rules to find out how.

How To Use

This page is a DApp (Decentralized application) meaning that you'll need an Ethereum browser to use this.

DApp (or web3 as it's called) is really the future of the web! You can try out for yourself now, even though it's still in the early stages of development.

The easiest way to get started is to download the MetaMask extension for Chrome.

MetaMask is currently probably the best way to use at this time as it offers the lest friction.

Mist Wallet - instructions for the professionals

It's much easier to use an Ethereum Browser / MetaMask, but you can also use the Mist wallet by itself if you have the patience. (Or another non-browser wallet that supports contracts / tokens)
