Luke-Jr keeps changing it to some weird Russian symbol nobody uses on Wikipedia. It probably shows up as the Baht for him or something.

Anyways, we generally use the Thai Baht for Bitcoins, right?

฿ <- that right there

That's not standard unicode though. If Luke-Jr is trying to pushing a custom font on top of another symbol, that's just not going to fly on Wikipedia.

There is no identical unicode symbol. The Thai Baht is the closest however and The Silk Road (the largest Bitcoin marketplace) uses it.

Is this part of standard fonts?

If it is, I like it and let use it!

when you use the thai baht my wife has to ask what it is...

The US Dollar came out of the same evolution:

"The [$] sign is first attested in British, American, Canadian, Mexican and other Spanish American business correspondence in the 1770s, referring to the Spanish American peso,[1][2] also known as "Spanish dollar" or "piece of eight" in British North America, which provided the model for the currency that the United States later adopted in 1785 and the larger coins of the new Spanish American republics such as the Mexican peso, Peruvian eight-real and Bolivian eight-sol coins.

The best documented explanation reveals that the sign evolved out of the Spanish and Spanish American scribal abbreviation "ps" for pesos. A study of late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century manuscripts shows that the s gradually came to be written over the p developing a close equivalent to the "$" mark.[3][4][5][6][7]"

Um, no, I changed it to the symbol every major Bitcoin website uses - including bitcoin.org, bitcoincharts, and these forums - at least in their favicon: B⃦
This is the standard Unicode symbol used for the B with double vertical strokes.

The forum has BTC using some CSS (embedded fonts) to workaround the fact that major fonts don't render it as nice, but it is the same symbol.

Anyways, we generally use the Thai Baht for Bitcoins, right?

You must be confusing Bitcoin with Silk Road.

My vote is for the Thai Baht. It's clean, elegant and standard.

This isn't a vote; B⃦ has been the standard symbol since the beginning, and there is no good reason to change that. This is just Atlas trying to turn Bitcoin into mere "Silk Road currency".

A working web browser, perhaps. Or maybe it's a font issue with your system.
