I like that too.

In this forum:
- Add one smile with that symbol
- Maybe, can switch ฿ to that smile automatically when people writes....

The Baht symbol alone Could Cause some Confusion yes, but combine it with the symbol for the Costa Rican Colón and you get;

฿₡

so you could say, please send me ฿₡50.00.  

yay! hello from Costa Rica Cheesy
i like the idea of use the symbol ฿, well, is used in the THAI currency... anyway, is harder to put in if you are in a laptop...

Seriously though, using an existing currency's symbol will just give people another excuse to say that bitcoin is a scam, or to question its legitimacy.  Yeah, sure they're ignorant of the way bitcoin works, but why should we give them another reason to talk trash on bitcoin?

I think that it would be poetic for this open-sourced, grass roots, peer to peer currency to not have an offical currency symbol.

I do beleive that over time, the ฿ and the BTC will become the defacto symbols due to their prolific use.

I like to keep an open mind though, so I went ahead and designed a new one in MS Paint and attached it to this reply.

My Idea and explanation:
Done roughly in MS paint:


Anyways, I think whatever the symbol is it should be both easy to identify and easy to write on paper, and not overly complex.

My symbol is basically a modified lower-case 'b' with an extension of the vertical line, a slightly more ovular semi-circle than normal which slightly protrudes out of the vertical line (giving it the subtle impression of a reversed 'c').

What do you guys think?

DO IT

I still think ß is a good choice for the currency symbol. Smiley

I love it:

  • Looks like a B.
  • Relatively easy to type, even on non-german keyboards (for example "compose s s", and on windows it's surely easy as well).
  • Present on most fonts.
  • Non-ambiguous: ß4.26 or 4.26ß, or even 4ß26 can't mean anything else than 4.26 bitcoins, even in a German context.
  • Non-ambiguous (bis): doesn't conflict with another currency.
  • It looks nice, and it offers neat possibilities of playing with its design.

Unless/until someone comes up with a new, better idea, I'll use ß from now on.

Option-s to get the ß symbol on a Mac. RightAlt-s to get it on Windows. I don't use Windows but I decided to go find it, to make it easier on anyone who reads this. Smiley

I like the ⓑ symbol most,

 It is well recognizable, not that hard to type (Alt-24d1 or Ctrl-Shift-u 24d1 ),
it looks a bit like a coin and moreover it is quite similar to
the @, which did become a symbol of the electronic age.

The Baht symbol is also beautiful and the Baht-Cordoba combination
is well-looking and meaningful as well. However I think that
Baht alone would cause a little confusion at least in Thailand ;-)

Hello all, I decided I'd make an account JUST to show my support for Ⓑ (well, and probably to rant and ramble on other issues as well  Grin). Sure, $ is used in multiple places so why not the Thai ฿? I personally feel like bitcoin is such a radical step (at least for most people, who don't tend to think about the value of currency) that piggybacking on a current currency symbol just because it has the letter B in it is poor form. The Ⓑ (U+24B7) works just as well, or even better. It's shaped like a coin, it has a B, there is no potential for confusion.

I honestly can't think of an argument for ฿ and against Ⓑ.

^^^ asdfqwejpwek has a point...


I like Ⓑ.

I still vote ß, it's the easiest to type, it's in all the fonts, etc, etc. Smiley

Agreed. ß and BTC should be our official symbols.

The problem with ß is that is that it is actively used by a country/language.

Same with ฿.

To my knowledge, Ⓑ doesn't have that problem; and it is a "B" in a circle - like a "coin".

Yes, ß is used in a language, however, the way it is used does not provide for any ambiguity to exist. ß45.20 would have only one possible interpretation. Same with 45.20ß if anyone was noting it that way.
