There's a character for an abstract triangle-ish "B"? Can I get a screenshot? Or someone please tell me which font to install

Lol thanks. Now all I need is the font.

I recommend asking me for a signature from my GPG key before doing a trade. I will NEVER deny such a request.

Although the BTC is recognized and has built a brand, I don't particularly like it, and prefer the latin B with horizontal bar...

I don't usually say this out loud, but... that one looks like a guy with a stick up his a...ss

I don't usually say this out loud, but BTC looks like an aerial view of a woman with large breasts and very small arms, beheaded. Headless bodies are more disconcerting to me than sodomy, so +1 for the Ƀ.

Hmm, good point, never thought of that one  Grin

What do you see now from up there... ɃBTC

OK, so I know this isn't what is really wanted by Coinabul, he wanted no gradients etc. but a lot of people seem to like the current one, so I knocked up  vector version thereof, adjusted with the new symbol.

http://i.minus.com/jZT9ORSBwSQYR.png

That's the full-res 512x512 PNG icon, for your use wherever etc. and if you want the original Illustrator file, it's here http://minus.com/lojcsnZ9ayjAT.
Finally, in the extremely unlikely event you find this usable etc. you can toss me some cents here 1EUGrS4nRKpTtMrfbwwq4EziYpVCF8vym6.
Although it's pretty crappy really, just an update of a not-that-great icon, and it only took me an hour or so, from scratch.

I think I may work on a proper new logo design...I still kinda like the idea of sticking with the coin though...just removing the need for gradients etc. and making it a logo, instead of an icon (which is what it currently is!).

I think this will look very nice, as soon as you use the actual Bitcoin symbol BTC instead of whatever ugly symbol you have used

Thanks guys...I will open up a thread if that's what you want.  Not doing this for coin, really.  Currently sitting down trying to come up with a "proper" one for corporate usage etc. (ie to print on t-shirts, use on sites as an "accepted here" thing, one-colour, better for printing at small sizes etc.), may do either a stylised coin, or perhaps a new design entirely...
If you did give me a tip though, thanks very much, it is always appreciated.  I promise to spend it wisely, on beer and pizza, in accordance with tradition.

AQ: I must admit I'm not fond of the new Ƀ symbol either, but it's what the community appears to be coalescing around.  I understand the arguments about the old one holding brand-appeal, and being well-recognised, especially since as a currency, you want to retain brand-value even more than a traditional company like Apple or McDonalds etc. do with their logo.  But, all the same, it weas taken first by the Thai currency, and the double-stalked BTC a) isn't in Unicode, and b) looks very american, which I don't have a problem with, but I know some do across the world, so the community wants Ƀ, the community gets Ƀ.

But, this is an open-source, anything goes project.  You *can* get what you want.

Watching this thread with interest. I think some of (my) confusion comes from whether you're going for a currency symbol, a technology logo, or a company branding - each needs slightly different approaches IMHO.

I like the idea that a Bitcoin symbol would be a) easy to write, b) easy to type. Continuing on the Unicode path, a couple caught my eye:

In the Georgian set: ფ as it looks like a B with a coin in the corner (e.g. "Pay me back my ფ300 damn you")
Maths: ⊕ as it looks like a coin with a plus on it. Maybe combined with a B (e.g. "That'll be B⊕300 please")
Alternatively, ⟴ which has an arrow, like a coin MOVING THROUGH CYBERSPACE. ("Donate ⟴1 to me")

Personally I still quite like the current symbol but with some slight tweaks. I'll see if I can illustrate some basic thoughts some time.

Other than that it looks good.

The right solution would be: someone should register BTC as an official unicode character.
Has been tried before https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=7215.0, but it seems that this guy vanished in the meantime.
