Ik sprak net met Matthew van Bitcoin magazine. Ze gaan in de Barnes & Noble editie van Bitcoin Magazine (#3) een artikel over het Bitcoin symbool doen. Ze stellen voor om vanaf nu het nieuwe symbool, Ƀ, te gebruiken, die al in unicode zit en niet wordt gebruikt voor enige currency. Zie http://www.ecogex.com/bitcoin/ voor meer argumentatie.

Als je meedoet als bedrijf of individu, laat het me dan ff weten, dan geef ik dat door aan Matthew en voegt hij je toe aan deze lijst hier als supporter: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Ajtx05YrHtIydEFmWVVWQWpuYmwybExZY1A1d3Y0Z3c#gid=0

Edit: Hier een custom keyboard layout: ftp://bitcoinlayout:bitcoinlayout@forecast.student.utwente.nl/usinbtc.zip
US-international layout (wat de meeste mensen hebben), maar dan met Ƀ onder AltGr+B (of Ctrl+Alt+B).

Als er behoefte is aan andere layouts moet je het maar even zeggen.

Quote from: Matthew & Mqrius
[02:41:59 PM] Matthew N. Wright: We'll be releasing a new article in the Barnes and Noble first issue about the Bitcoin symbol and how it cannot work the way it is (it is incompatible with -anything- in the world right now), and showing everyone how to use the new recommended symbol (originally recommended by http://www.ecogex.com/bitcoin/ ). The symbol is Ƀ (U+0243)

This is an excerpt from the site: "Ƀ (U+0243) is a unicode character used as a "capitalized alternate symbol for the voiced bilabial fricative in Americanist phonetic notation". It is included in a lot of typefaces such as Arial, Times New Roman, Tahoma, Helvetica, Deja vu, Linux Biolinum, Linux Libertine, FreeSerif, Geneva, Gentium Plus, Microsoft sans serif, and many more..."

If I can get confirmation from you that you will adopt this standard symbol, I would like to list your name in the "supporters" column of https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Ajtx05YrHtIydEFmWVVWQWpuYmwybExZY1A1d3Y0Z3c
[02:43:03 PM] Mqrius: Yeah, sure, I'll add it to my keyboard layout Smiley
[02:43:23 PM] Mqrius: What are these adoption tiers?
[02:45:10 PM] Matthew N. Wright: 1st means they're leading the pack
[02:45:15 PM] Matthew N. Wright: 2nd means they're going right after that
[02:45:17 PM] Matthew N. Wright: and 3rd means unsure
[02:45:39 PM] Mqrius: I'll take 1st Smiley
[02:46:02 PM] Mqrius: 's about time there was some decision about the logo
[02:46:35 PM] Mqrius: I don't like the colors much though :x
[02:46:44 PM] Matthew N. Wright: Nah, the colors are not required
[02:46:45 PM] Mqrius: http://www.ecogex.com/bitcoin/ They look depressing
[02:46:46 PM | Edited 02:46:49 PM] Matthew N. Wright: What's your email again?
[02:46:50 PM] Mqrius: Nuntius.Marii@Gmail.com
[02:48:15 PM] Mqrius: can/shall I spread this to people that may want to be on the list?
[02:48:24 PM] Matthew N. Wright: Yes!
[02:48:26 PM] Matthew N. Wright: Anyone!
[02:48:28 PM] Matthew N. Wright: Any businesses too!

Edit over de tiers:
1st = Front line
2nd = Ready to go when front line does
3rd = Need to see the effects of front line to decide
4th = Will do anything the "community" does

I don't like it, use the other one (like a Dollar but with a B, the second submission on https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Bitcoin_symbol). If it has to be unicode just use the Thai Baht one. So many currencies use $ it's ridiculous, so who cares a bunch of Thai are already using it Wink

To paraphrase another user: Your proposal looks like someone with a stick up his butt.

The fact that those guys like it doesn't make me like it more Tongue

But please write about it, in the end the majority of the users will decide anyway. (I am used to typing EUR already anyway as I have no Euro-sign on my keyboard, currently I am doing the same for BTC).

Yea, I will still use BTC and it is impossible to erase BTC from the history of Bitcoin (lol) but I believe we should start making things easier for the community and newcomers, and I figure what better place to start than the very symbol we use?

If you're using Linux, you may be interested in the compose key.
