Here is an image I created some months back:

http://i1097.photobucket.com/albums/g352/kroptofer/bitcoin.jpg


I don't know about you, but I still prefer the first logo which had the actual letters "BC" written on the coin


 instead of the strange double strikethrough "B" :

It reminds me too much of the dollar and other currencies. Am I the only one bothered by this? Now, I'm obviously no graphic designer, but are there any out there who made logos with a similar way of thinking? (maybe some logos that don't look like the looney tunes title card, unlike mine)

By the way, I have been generating bitcoins since at least April '09, but this is my first post here. I guess I was starting to feel left out of the discussions.

that would be great for web sites if used as favicon img
can i use it that way?
it sucks having multiple tabs about btc open and all of them having the same img : )

That also irritates me. I do prefer the newer slashed-B icon, though.

Here is the old 16x16 "BC" icon:

Now that "BTC" is heavily used to mean "bitcoins", I think it's worth deprecating "BC". When the "BC" logo was originally used, way back when, there was no widespread usage of "BTC". I think it's more than enough enough to have strikethrough-B and BTC, without reviving a third abbreviation.

but for bitcoin central the bc logo is THE candidate for a favicon v 2.0

Sure, that's a natural and appropriate use of "BC".

Could it just be a B in a circle? That way it'd match the Ⓑ unicode symbol that some of us want to see adopted as the official symbol. I agree the double strikethrough isn't great, due to the Baht conflict.

The Baht has a single line. Bitcoin has two.

That's still pretty close. Dollar symbol is written with both one and two strikethroughs sometimes.

"Natural and appropriate", eh?  Well, what if I were to toy around with the logo, and the next favicon would look something like this:

http://i1097.photobucket.com/albums/g352/kroptofer/bitcoinFace1.png

or this:   

http://i1097.photobucket.com/albums/g352/kroptofer/bitcoinFace2.png


or heck, maybe even -

and a horizontal version:

although instead of simply a favicon, I seem to have made a mascot. Imagine, he could be shooting at some real-world currency characters...alright I just spent way too much time on these, I think I'll go visit one of the geopolitical, socio-economic forums.

I laughed out loud!

You should post this on witcoin, I guess, and maybe expand on it.
