It'll be great, if everyone uses after this poll the same symbol.

Think of usability!

This is not the Poll about the international code BTC ony about the sign like $ but for bitcoin
If you got another symbol writ and i'll put it in the poll.

And with one poll, one thread from a year ago http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=41.0 , has became two.

For your next trick, pull a rabbit out of your ass.

This is the only winner



But ฿ is second.

Note: The first and last options are no characters at all.   Bottom shows up as just a square.   Top one starts off with a  B but ends with a square character.

I vote: forget about the glyph for now.

Use a sexy .png something like the image above, or the letters BTC.

Go for a proper unicode character once the bitcoin economy has some serious scale to it.

+1

The #-B is a great idea - I've tried to scale it down in the other thread. Not sure if it works though.

Getting it into a Unicode revision will take a while, so I suggest we decide on a new symbol and propose it soon.

Why does it have to be a symbol, like $?

Why can't it be a letter combination (so you can type/print it on any computer, cell phone, typewriter), for example, Bc or Bt?

We already have a de-facto standard Bitcoin currency code: BTC
This discussion is about a single-digit symbol, which is kind of complementary for most (all?) currencies.

None of the above. (Or possibly the last option, which for me just shows as a square).

Indeed the one that shows up as 'just a square' for you is the one featured on the link you shared. Ƀ  

 also like it, and would use it on my bitcoin web store if it rendered properly in all browsers.  As you demonstrated, it often does not.  Therefore for now I use BTC and ฿

I find the list unnecessarily limited to capitals.
Capital 'B' stands for Byte, not bit, so for the bitcoin I propose the ␢ (I just hope it won't show as a square) Smiley
(description: minor 'b'with a horizontal line through the stem.
Edit: well, not quite totally horizontal...

Can you add an option for "none of the above"?

Here is what I think it should look like:

I am use to the $ here in America, but I think the B with the line through it doesn't look to good I go with Ƀ
1.5Ƀ   looks pretty cool

hahaha, I just seen the results, why is this a poll again?

Majority has ruled on this one long ago, and has ruled again.

I expect the topic to come back up in a month.

Have we decided if the symbol goes before the number or after?

(I'll just use B as the symbol) Do we write B7.12 or 7.12B? Or do we write B7,12 ?


Most currency's say $ amount.. or (Euro symbol) amount.. but it would be pronounced dollars 15 which no one says here...In the US as I know of. But Bitcoin..being the new amazing currency it is should be pronounced 7.12B and if you are out of the US please tell me why a comma is used instead of a decimal?   Huh
