Yeah, but turn it around such that it has "two horns". Like the pentagram.

Is it Ƀ or Ƀ in a circle?

Every week I'm torn between 2 different symbols. This week it's β and Ƀ (http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=9562.0) Right now, I'm leaning towards β because of how easy it is to right, and how it just kind of naturally looks like a currency symbol.

I think one other issue that needs to be considered is how the bitcoin symbol would look when expressing values far smaller than 1 BTC.  I know it hasn't been absolutely established yet that BTC will use SI units, but I think it is highly likely that we will end up using the convention of 0.001 BTC = 1 milli-bitcoin and 0.000001 BTC = 1 micro-bitcoin.  If that's the case, then we will probably end up using "m" for milli and "μ" for micro.

When you set the various symbols next to these prefixes, they look like this:

0.001 ฿ = 1 m฿ = 1000 μ฿
0.001 Ⓑ = 1 mⒷ = 1000 μⒷ
0.001 ⓑ = 1 mⓑ = 1000 μⓑ
0.001 Ƀ = 1 mɃ = 1000 μɃ
0.001 ¤ = 1 m¤ = 1000 μ¤
0.001 β = 1 mβ = 1000 μβ

To me, the Ⓑ and ⓑ symbols look very awkward in these cases, whereas the others are more aesthetically pleasing.  My personal preference is for the ฿ symbol, since it looks like money.  Since that's being used as the Bhat currency symbol already, though, my second choice would be for the β, since it has a nice visual flow when combined with the milli and micro prefixes.

I've been feeling the β lately, so here's my mediocre take on the logo:

Obviously based on bitboy's work.

I've decided to throw my support behind:

Ƀ

I just changed the currency symbol on SquareWear (when you put the currency selector on bitcoin) and put the new "bitcoin accepted" logo in my footer.  I have a few of the other logos in shirts I sell, but that's okay for now.

I support Ƀ.

β is already used enough in math. (We should avoid any Greek letter in fact)

Ƀ isn't seen so often and consequently an association between the symbol and Bitcoin can easily be made.

Wavering back and forth between Ƀ and β, but either way, I really like bitboy's graphics. So heres bitboy's logo with Ƀ:



Maybe he will eventually become active on the forums once again, and remake it better than I can.

My vote is still for ฿ Grin Bitcoins are worth more than the Thai baht! Shocked Considering how many people use $, we certainly deserve to be able to use ฿.

Dude, it has been almost a month since the last post on May 26, and all you can say is "+1"?   Angry

I'm curious, anyone see any objection to using ß as the symbol? I've actually been using that for weeks in private conversations with friends regarding bitcoins... And everyone seems to have no trouble with understanding what I mean when I put in, say, ß2.50, while talking about price or mining and stuff like that.
