Are you asking or asserting?

An economy based on endless growth is unsustainable.

There is no authority that controls this. Therefore it would never be "official" that the "sign" for bitcoin will be changed.

The only way this would ever be "official" is if the community/market participants start to use this as a whole

If the bigger exchanges push the new sign. Wouldn't it change in time?

Not necessarily, but maybe. I don't think the exchanges really have that much influence as to how bitcoin is measured nor how bitcoin is "displayed"

I would say that merchants would have more influence and in turn coinbase/bitpay would have influence that may be able to "change" how people "look" at a unit of measure of bitcoin

I'm pretty sure OP is referring to currency codes.  In this case, the appropriate "office" is the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) and XBT will be the "official" currency code for bitcoin precisely if/when this organisation declares it to be so.

At some extent it can be called "official" due to being accepted as an ISO-Certified Currency Code. Most ppl are still trusting this type of central authority.It definitely will increase the adoption of bitcoin.

This would have to be accepted by the community. Even if it is declared official people like us, you and me will have to start to talk and use btc instead of xbt.

Yeh, this isn't for the bitcoin community to decide but whoever controls the currency codes. Is BTC already taken or can it not be used? If so XBT would be fine I suppose, but I prefer BTC.

Just because XBT is an ISO for bitcoin doesn't mean we can't use BTC or even BTC. It's easier to reffer from "BTC" to bitcoin that what it is to do so from "XBT". Some exchanges are now using XBT as their ticker and exchange symbol, but it doesn't really make a difference. I guess people will keep using BTC for the reason I mentioned above.
