Looks like we have been accepted for the next revision of Unicode! Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be news or a thread about this... Only a twitter announcement, but I bet this will be discussed a lot in the next few hours Smiley

What do you all think? I think this is great news!

i can only think likeyou,  this is great, many great news lately are coming all together, and they are actually doing something to the market, instead of being just vaporware

i hope in the future, this symbol will be added to keyboard also, maybe remove the fiat symbol altogether  Grin

ok ok, first at all, lets RETWEET it guys!!! Tongue

That's a great news for sure, just on the fact that this will be discussed bring me a real hope about it. This is so exciting, because it will impulse bitcoin a lot, and people who dont know it, will start to ask themselves whats is this symbol Wink

i hope in the future, this symbol will be added to keyboard to, maybe remove the fait symbol altogether  Grin

I hope that too, that will be awesome, i can't wait to see that symbol on my keyboard lol.

Great news indeed and a greater proposal made by Ken Shirriff which thanks to him, we could use in the near future the BTC sign in more places and the way he explained the proposal, I'm speechless honestly, didn't knew it could happen but I was wrong on the matter

You'd still need the $ for programming and other purposes but I agree that keyboard manufacturers should include BTC on their next designs

Finally! Another acknowledgment from the general public! This is actually a big news because people have been pushing this to be implemented and it seems that we finally have our hands on it. Cheesy

...i hope in the future, this symbol will be added to keyboard also, maybe remove the fiat symbol altogether  Grin

You can request keyboard manufacturers for it since it is already a unicode, though I'm not sure whether they'll be interested or not.

Preferably get rid of the "Windows" key also, just needs changing to a symbol meaning "menu" seeing as that's what it does on Windows anyway (as well as most other OS'es)

thats what this all are the reason for the current price increase of bitcoin, because now everyone is accepting the potential of bitcoin and everyone wants to hold it before it goes higher odd, bad luck i sold my 0.1 btc @ 334 usd, no problem, i still carry some more will sell on 400 usd.

Awesome news, I guess this was the result of the price increasing.
BTW shouldn't this be considered a spot here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=87.0 ?

This is definately a step in the right direction and a big goal reached for the bitcoin community.

Makes me proud to have been sort of early in this game. Smiley

Way to go.

This is pretty huge. Anyone knows what key combinations you have to press to make the symbol appear? I wish they would release a keyboard with a more accessible key combination (for example a simple shift + a number one like we use for $), and the key would show the BTC symbol. We need to make it a standard in every keyboard on the planet.

Yep, that would be great! And then maybe tens of millions of people who still don't aware of Bitcoin's existence will become curious of what it is.

The price is rising already, but we need more reasons for its rising and stabilising.

It doesn't go that fast to get accepted in there.

I remember some people discussing a while ago that they had submitted a request to get it added, timing is just perfect though!

That is pretty big news indeed, now we need Bitcoin on keyboards as well.

Did someone call Logitech yet?

A true international keyboard layout should have a Bitcoin shortcut on it.
