My vote (if this were a vote and I had any voting power) would be 'XC0' for 'Chain #0'.

XCN - The "x" coin or, The "x" cartoon network.  I leave that up to user interpretation.


We might be calling them "XCoins" or something anyway if that cocksucker lawyer and shitty countries that allow you to patent someone else's non-physical invention get their way.
Still need a paperworks and money to implement it. Your "we might..." bullshit way ain't gonna do it right. Talk is cheap.

...the fuck are you talking about?

More specifically how did you interpret what I said to even think that a response such as yours is even remotely congruent? It wasn't a call to action or anything of that nature, just a snarky comment about how the letters B, T, and C may not even be usable in the future regardless.

I get the feeling that your point is probably obvious to you, but it sure as shit isn't obvious to me what exactly you're getting at.

Furthermore I don't like the usage of currency symbols anyway since they are applied differently anywhere which only leeds to confusion and misunderstanding in a global community

Exp: USA: $1'000'000.00
         EU:   1.000.000,00 €

I'll take it that you are not from the EU, or else you would know that the Euro symbol (€) is always used BEFORE the ammount, like this: €5.000.000,00(five million euros and zero cents) Wink

Hm, funny thing. I don't know in which part of the EU you are, but in Germany the Euro symbol is always behind the numbers.

Actually this constitutes my point - too confusing.

I'm in Portugal, altho i lived for several years in The Netherlands and they use the sign before the amount, like they do in Belgium. Can't speak about other places cause i haven't been there. But i remember when the Euro was introduced in Portugal and they specificaly said that the symbol should laways come before the amount, so i was thinking it would be like that in the whole EU. It seems it isn't after all   Undecided
Never visited Germany, so i can't tell.

I think most Bitcoin are minted in the sovereign silicon nations of ATI/AMD GPUs. Can we call it ABC? Or is that taken by Sesame Street?

Euros should really be EUE - European Union Euros.

I think its important we start with X, but remember x stands for nothing, so dont say it! XAU is gold, not X-gold.

XBT I think is unused, could that work?

Not true - the EU is a supranational organization not a country (at least for now).
So to be consistent it would have to be XEU.

But that EUR was chosen only shows that the ISO commitee isn't consistent anyway

XBC currently stands for the "European Unit of Account", which was discontinued in 1979. Since that currency is now defunct, I think we can request the code be used for bitcoins.

Any standard has exceptions, as has been stated about EUR. So why not push an exception to this standard too and list Bitcoin as BTC?

After all, bitcoin is all about community, and if millions of people use BTC, then BTC becomes the de-facto standard, not vice-versa.

Or, well, someone should fly to Bhutan and get them to officially use bitcoin as their national currency Smiley

Because non-conformity to ISO 4217 is the only thing stopping them recognizing Bitcoin as a legitimate world currency! \o/

+1

That is what will happen anyway because changing habits is hard.
