Because "bitcoins" is a currency, it should all be lower-case (like "euros" and "dollars"). However, the network system known as "Bitcoin" should be capitalized.

"BTC" should typically be caps.

Examples:

- I use Bitcoin
- I own and spend bitcoins
- I'll send you 10 BTC

I'm not sure where this came from originally, but this is the standard I've used... from https://bitcointalk.org/adrotate.php?adinfo

The Bitcoin software, network, and concept is called "Bitcoin" with a capitalized "B". Bitcoin currency units are called "bitcoins" with a lowercase "b" -- this is often abbreviated BTC.

That is also the convention that has been generally accepted on the StackExchange site. Basically everyone seems to accept it, there was never any debate.
