If you bought the top, didn’t GTFO when a rug happened or simply when a bull market turned into a bear market, you might become a bagholder. This means you hold a position (a “bag”) of a certain token, that drops in value.

Bagholders might not worry and use the lower price to BTFD, increasing their bags. If they are lucky, it’s uponly from there, but more often the maximalist get stuck with heavy and worthless bags.

Investopedia has a nice description:

A bagholder is an informal term used to describe an investor who holds a position in a security that decreases in value until it descends into worthlessness. In most cases, the bag holder stubbornly retains their holding for an extended period, during which time the value of the investment goes to zero.
