ϭ actually does have a visible relation to bitcoin, seeing as it is the lower-case russian B. :) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nanotube (talkcontribs) at 06:15, 2 January 2011

Pros and cons as different collums?

I think it would be better if the pros and cons were in sepparate colums to make it easier to evaluate the proposals; what do you say? --TiagoTiago 15:23, 26 April 2011 (GMT)

Removal of section called Existing Unicode symbol

Unless good reason are given, I would like to delete the section called "Existing Unicode symbol" Pander 12:04, 21 July 2011 (GMT)

  • I object because B⃦ is already more or less universally accepted (,, Bitcoin Charts/Watch/OTC, etc) as the standard BTC symbol. Unicode isn't going to accept any new symbol for a niche currency, so anything new would be relegated to the PUA anyway. Let's stick to what works. In fact, even if Bitcoin were to get enough non-niche use, both "submissions" currently listed are basically just font variants of B⃦. --Luke-jr 17:01, 21 July 2011 (GMT)
  • I think it would be a good idea to get our own symbol, but as B⃦ is already fairly universally accepted, it isn't a huge priority. I think the Existing Unicode symbol section should stay. I don't think though we should discard the two submissions based on them being stylized B⃦'s. I think they are sufficiently different from B⃦ for our purposes. Zellfaze 15:37, 11 April 2012 (GMT)

Unit and subunit symbols

The proposal is to use existing unicode symbols. My preference is to use the unicode \u243 html Ƀ for bitcoin and the unicode \u289 html ʉ for microcoin where 1 bitcoin = 1,000,000.00 microcoins You can view the Units discussion What do you think?

Bitcoin's ISO 4217 numeric code?

Bitcoin's proposed ISO 4217 alpha code is BTC or XTC, but does it have a proposed ISO 4217 numeric code?--Geremia (talk) 05:38, 10 December 2016 (UTC)
