Dear friends, what is the meaning of hold promise, but I could not find anything useful. So could you please explain this a little bit to me and see if the usage of it in the following sentence is correct?

while they might have more-or-less potential dangers in terms of the economy, they holds more tantalising promise for the wellbeing of individuals and society as a whole.

Do you think my above sentence is correct?

The main verb needs to be plural: "they hold." "While" needs to be capitalized.

Whilethe sentence reads well, I can't comment on whether or not it makes sense, not knowing what "they" are. Emotion: smile

Edit. "To have dangers" is not the best choice of a verb, although the expression is often used. I'd say "they present dangers."
