The Bitcoin Symbol
« on: February 23, 2018, 11:53:30 am »
hey everyone!

Bitcoin is so popular cryptocurrency but have you notice the logo of bitcoin actually having the same symbol for the Thai baht, ฿ (U+0E3F), The symbol most closely matches the aforementioned Bitcoin logo. As such, it is not uncommon to see it used to represent Bitcoin. However, this causes possible confusion with the baht while Ƀ has no other uses related to currency.

I have read that some people want us to use the B with stroke (majuscule: Ƀ, minuscule: ƀ) is a letter of the Latin alphabet, formed from B with the addition of a bar, which can be through either the ascender or the bowl.


the website below thinks that bitcoin deserves the right symbol


What do you think about this one?

Nice obseravation. But people are use to it as the symbol of bitcoin. If theres any changes, theres a lot of adjustment. And if everyone agress to the new symbol maybe this adjustments are tolerable. But as of now lets stick to this symbol
