There's nothing wrong using a symbol of bitcoin but I prefer to use the three letter BTC which is easy to identify and recognize, also I am more comfortable using it. I think it depends on everyone if what you want to use as a symbol for Bitcoin.

I propose that we adopt the Thai baht currency symbol, ฿, as the official bitcoin currency symbol and BTC as the official bitcoin three letter currency code.

It appears to be a Dollar sign and I figure we should have to go something different since its like opposed to duplicating USD.
The more significant thing is people may think its a trick/scam and a duplicate feline of USD. They can ridicule it and deceiving it would be harmful to what's to come.
For me I concur with the 3 three-letters there's nothing incorrectly with it and can be worth around the world.

For me, I am comfortable with the three letter symbol for BTC. I agree with most others say that if you use a new symbol and that is not accepted by everybody then it will cause confusion. We are in unregulated space and practically people can do anything with their cryptos anyway they want to, but we have to agree that not everything in crypto can be changed by someone without a consensus of everybody. And the answer is clear, no one want to use any symbol, except for BTC.

Nice work! I don't understand the doubling thing, care to explain?
Just found out of Bitcoin, Ive spent nights and days reading old forums just to see how great the times were.
I wish I had been here back than but I was just a 7 years old kiddo with no internet access from a third world country.
I know nobody gives a sh!t to help a stranger out, but I see it a far-fetched dream owning a whole Bitcoin, with a 250$ off taxes salary, a job which was lost due to covide and Im currently unemployed. My lifesaving are around 1.2K while Bitcoin is sitting at 10K area today.
Please care to explain the doubling part bro Cry It might help me if still available cuz Im tired of asking new investors like a MAN TO A MAN for any fraction of Bitcoin. World is so greedy!
Wished I had been around than and been older, I would've bought a shitload of Bitcoin and today I would've been the one who would share his abundance cuz I would've been happy and settled down ever for my future generations with just [email protected]
I hope U still safe and sound Smiley
All the best bro

Bitcoin is a unicode character.

Good thought. It will be a great idea if we have Bitcoin emotions but we don't find anywhere.

As you have thought about it create a Emoji symbol so that we can use it in our conversation Orelse we just have to use money bag symbol or smiley in that Bitcoin as Emoji.

Create bitcoin symbol that should be unique but make sure it will be available on keyboards so that we can use.

I don't think there is a problem with it because the $ is also using by other countries as long as they know what currency it is then there is no confusion will happen and I think the physical money itself will still be the best reference by the money exchangers.
What the problem by bitcoin symbol? I think there are not have the same symbol like bitcoin with many companies and other project, I like with bitcoin symbol because very simple and interested with many investor, I found many the shirt using bitcoin symbol and give best promoting for many people using bitcoin symbol to help bitcoin have higher price.

Bitcoin sign has been added to Unicode 10.0 (June 2017).

Congrats everyone.



Hmm, did you know that i actually posted a thread about it last year?

Here is how to produce the ₿ (Bitcoin) symbol in xorg (Linux/BSD/etc) by keypres

The (Bitcoin) symbol exists officially in unicode under code U+20BF since 2017 (Unicode v10). If you have a fairly recent Unicode font, such as Google's Noto, you can already see the Bitcoin symbol and use it by copy paste or unicode input along the traditional fiat symbols like $, £, €, etc.

As i explained back then, anyone with a recent enough unicode font should have access to this symbol. I mentioned Google's Noto which happens to be in Android as well. If you don't have this font in your OS, install it, its free. Other unicode fonts (updated after v10) should have this symbol by now.

Reading early comments in this from 2010 and 2011 gives you nostalgic. This may the first debate on deciding the logo of Bitcoin, hates off to all early contributes of this forum. I wish somoen who has commented in 2010, may come up and share his views.

Here's something I came up with real quick.
It's a combo of the cent symbol and a b.

Handwritten:


I'm diggin the #3 version though, in handwriting it looks pretty badass.

I just included an updated version of a new proposal for a reference character:
   https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Bitcoin_symbol#Submissions

Feedback is welcome!
It is based on the original design ideas from netrin and RylandAlmanza.
I also included a link to the SVG, so anyone who might want to improve upon it is encouraged to do so.

Please do create and submit your own proposals for a standard reference character but please read the excellent coverage from Pander in the wiki first. I really hope that we can come up with a few more designs in order to cover a larger part of the communities individual preferences.

Once we have that, we can hopefully reach a community consensus on the future official Bitcoin Unicode character and issue our request to the Unicode consortium.

I'll try to find some time to make the shiny coin with the B from Edgeworth, gives a better view, but thrust me, the B he made is perfect. Smiley

Looking forward to seeing that. (you weren't sold on any of the #B glyphs?)

Only problem with the B with double slashes, it looks splendid as a logo, but for typographic use it has one line to much, that's why you also see the dollar symbol with 2 lines when it is a big logo but with one line in fonts: $. And if you lose one line in the double lined B you'll get: ฿.

Not entirely (unless you constrain yourself to Unicode). Edgeworth's first vertical would share the left side of B and the second slash does not cross through the loops of the B.

Hi all, if you agree, please merge all serious proposals and requirement for Bitcoin sign here: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Bitcoin_symbol#New_Unicode_symbol in order to have a clear and high quality overview in stead of them being distributed over many long posts. Of course the posts remain useful in discussing proposed Bitcoin signs.

I made the shiny one, but the B from Edgeworth is far superior, he actually thought about it, I just recreated the B from a design from Satoshi: https://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=64.0 and spended more time on the overall coin and just made sure the B was looking good.
