I like the proposal but, I don't know why, I think that the gold color is needed and works fairly well on weusecoins.com

When doing Weusecoins we considered designing a new logo for Bitcoin, but eventually decided it was best to stick with what people were already used to. I'm usually not a fan of crowdsourcing design, but when a logo/symbol emerges victorious again and again whenever the discussion comes up, maybe it's time to chill out and roll with it.  Cool

North America has vertical lines.

$

Europe has horizontal.



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


Satoshi has horizontal.

¥

AFAIK, those extra lines in currency letters are there to denote stability, and IMHO horizontal lines convey this idea better. However, vertical seems to go better with letters like B and S, and the Baht symbol is quite established for Bitcoin already.

i like golden yellow better :p
I am personally not so fond of the current gold color, in my book it associates with casinos, get-rich-quick schemes and other scammy avenues.

This proposed color scheme is more professional and bank-like.

Exactly! I hate that!

Ok, professional's good. But bank-like? I don't want that either.

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.

That's just like, your opinion, man. I like that this symbol isn't used by any other currency.

If we want Bitcoin to succeed, don't you think that the air of legitimacy a "bank like" currency symbol gives us is an asset?  If not bank-like, what kind of feel would you want it to have?

Bitcoin-like! Cheesy What does that mean? I don't know, but it's definitely the way to go! Realistically, bank-like may be the best way. I guess I just have a negative association with banks. Just the word "bank" makes me feel bad.

Well, I decided to make it official.  I changed everything on SquareWear to Ƀ. (Except for the shirts themselves that already have it built in)

On the downside, it appears the default font used on Android cannot display this character.

Wavering back and forth between Ƀ and β, but either way, I really like bitboy's graphics. So heres bitboy's logo with Ƀ:



Maybe he will eventually become active on the forums once again, and remake it better than I can.

Thanks, I have seen the character you're all talking about, and I really like it. It's different to any other currency symbol I've seen.

I like this image:



The double-vertical-line B, like in your avatar BW actually reminds me too much of the cartoon "Richie Rich".

Exactly, the sound I hear in my brain when I see it is "cha-ching!"

Exactly, it needs to have two lines of security to be real money ... Atlas Shrugged.

One for public key other for private key ... cha ..... ching.
