There isn't really any natural Bitcoin unit, though.

Never mind that, there is a natural unit. The total Bitcoin amount (what is now called 21 million) would be 1.
I like it.  And the Thai people will thank us for it  Smiley

The ideal system would use base 12 for both measurements and numerals. Or even base 60.
I'd rather have 16 (or some other power of 2). In this age, being compatible with computers trumps making division a bit easier.
