• Arman The Parman, a Bitcoin educator, has proposed a new symbol for sats: a reverse “S” combined with a vertical line.
• The symbol references the 21 million Bitcoin hard supply cap, and is a horizontally-reversed dollar sign, representing the anti-dollar.
• There has been a very quick and overwhelmingly positive response to the symbol on Twitter, indicating that there is a good chance of widespread adoption.
Bitcoiners have been struggling to decide on a universal symbol for sats, the smallest denomination of a Bitcoin. Arman The Parman, a passionate Bitcoin educator, has come up with a suggestion that many have found to be perfect for the job.
The proposed symbol is a reverse “S” combined with a vertical line. The letter “S” resembles a number two, while the vertical line looks like a number one, making 21, a reference to the 21 million Bitcoin hard supply cap. Additionally, the symbol is a horizontally-reversed dollar sign, symbolizing the anti-dollar, or the dollar-killer.
The proposal has been met with an incredibly positive response on Twitter. People have commented that the reverse “S” and vertical line can also represent the first and last letters of “Satoshi,” while others have drawn similarities to Knut Svanholm’s “infinity” divided by 21 million meme.
Interestingly, a “2” was also suggested as a potential symbol, but it was deemed less aesthetically pleasing and less likely to be adopted by the community.
Overall, Arman The Parman’s suggestion for the sats symbol has been widely accepted, indicating that it may become the universal symbol for sats. If this is the case, it will be a symbol of the Bitcoin revolution, representing the anti-dollar and the 21 million Bitcoin hard supply cap.
