Proposed Symbol for Sats Gains Overwhelmingly Positive Response

• Arman The Parman, a Bitcoin educator, proposes a symbol to represent sats: a reverse “S” combined with a vertical strikethrough, making 21, referencing the 21 million bitcoin hard supply cap.
• The proposed symbol is a vertically-reversed dollar sign, representing the anti-dollar, or the dollar-killer.
• There has been a very quick and overwhelmingly positive response to the proposed symbol, with people noting that it contains elements of Knut Svanholm’s “infinity” divided by 21 million meme and the first and last letters of “Satoshi.”

Bitcoiners have been struggling to settle on a unanimous choice for the sats symbol for some time. After much discussion, Arman The Parman, a Bitcoin educator passionate about privacy, has proposed a symbol which he believes many people can agree on.

The symbol which Arman is proposing is made up of a reverse “S,” which is like writing a “2” (but not quite), and a vertical strikethrough, which is like a “1.” The number two and one together also make 21, referencing the 21 million Bitcoin hard supply cap. Arman believes that this symbol is poetically beautiful and has a reasonable chance of being accepted by the majority of people.

The proposed symbol also has a deeper meaning, as it is a vertically-reversed dollar sign, representing the anti-dollar, or the dollar-killer. Alternatively, it can be seen as a horizontally-reversed dollar sign, although it cannot be both, otherwise it would end up flipping back to the dollar sign.

The announcement of the symbol on Arman’s public Twitter account has been met with an overwhelmingly positive response. People have commented that the reverse “S” and strikethrough can represent the first and last letters of “Satoshi,” as well as elements of Knut Svanholm’s “infinity” divided by 21 million meme.

One suggestion which has been made is for an actual “2” to be used instead of an “S,” however, this is unlikely to gain as much support as the inverted dollar sign as it can look messy when written in front of actual numbers, and it is not as visually pleasing.

The proposed sats symbol is an interesting solution to a problem which Bitcoiners have been trying to solve for some time. With the right amount of support, the proposed symbol could become the universally accepted representation of satoshis.
