Hello, after few days of documentation, reflexion and design, we introduce another proposal for an open Bitcoin logo.
The project page explains our motivations and technical details.

I strongly prefer the golden color. I know this is a temporary psychological effect, but Bitcoin is here to replace gold. The golden logos catch on.

Also, emphasizing the coin form not only fits the word perfectly, but again causes a positive association with money.

When you target geeks, choice of colors won't make much of a difference. But for the sake of targeting a wider audience, this new logo is less suitable than the ones that were used before.

I like the look.  You guys did some slick work here.  I read your reasons for making a new logo.  Can you elaborate specifically on the other logos and which of your design premises they each break?

North America has vertical lines.

$

Europe has horizontal.



If that's the reasoning I'm digging it. Bitcoin(s) not bitcoin?

My mistake, you just have to click on the reasons and it has exactly the information for which I was looking.

I like it. The colors look great to me, as well (of course, I suppose being colorblind might make my opinion invalid.)

EDIT: Just a few problems. The website has a few broken images, and the logo pack zip file seems to be corrupt.

I'm sure I didn't do it quite right, but I think it looks better than with empty space in the corner. Overall I like the scheme.

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

I somewhat prefer the gold too, but I think I like everything else about this new scheme. I think different colors will work for different applications and audiences though.

Are people interested in gold Ƀ stuff?

Sure, but I bet one symbol will emerge eventually. It just makes sense to use the most recognized symbol in your stuff which makes it more used and thus more recognized until one is the "actual" symbol and one is at best, the "old" symbol. Just a feeling about what will happen, not a should or an ought.

not exactly.
both symbols can evemrge/advance in different areas/purposes, like doen with others symbols/icons.
for example, you symbol more suitable for use in public area, ie as street mark/poster, while 1st variant is more suitable for docflow usage/mass-media ads.
or vice versa.
where is it actually matter is UTF table proposed change/update.

I can see that.

Even online an old symbol could have a different connotation, like, "We used Bitcoin before it was cool". So multiple symbols can all be part of the bitcoin graphic culture.

In your website you say that you don't like the vertical line, because the dollar sign has one. There are many more currency symbols that have this vertical line to convey stability. So keep the vertical line!

I bet he knows about the other currency symbols. I like how it has a horizontal line instead of vertical. Bitcoin is different after all. Vertical seems to imply hierarchy, horizontal implies fair, flat, peer relationships imo.

Ugh, no. I don't think bitcoins need a symbol at all, but if we must have one the thai baht symbol is much better than this.

I know this because Tyler knows this.
