A decades-old computer character standard has been updated with a symbol for bitcoin.
The Unicode Consortium unveiled Unicode version 10.0 today, which includes the bitcoin “B” symbol. Overall, the update includes 8,518 characters, along with 56 new emojis.
The move comes more than a year and a half after the Unicode Consortium, which oversees the Unicode computing text standard, approved a proposal that itself constituted a years-long process. Efforts toward a bitcoin Unicode symbol date back to as early as 2011
The proposal, submitted by technology blogger Ken Shirriff, was actually the second to be considered by the Consortium. An earlier push by Sander van Galoven of the Netherlands was rejected by the organization.
A group of US lawmakers wants to see cryptocurrency holdings declared at the nation’s border – and advocates of the tech are pushing back.
Introduced last month, the Combating Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing and Counterfeiting Act of 2017 – which is actually the third iteration of a bill that debuted in 2011 – would bring a range of digital currency services under federal scrutiny, including those that provide transaction mixing services.
Yet, the provision that has attracted the particular ire of cryptocurrency advocates – especially those who prefer a regulation-light environment – is one that would make such holdings subject to disclosure requirements at US customs checkpoints. This means if a person trying to enter the country has more than $10,000 worth of bitcoin in their possession, under the proposed legal change, they would need to inform the relevant authorities.
The proposal in question was the US Bill S.1241, introduced by Sen. Chuck Grassley and backed by a bi-partisan group of senators including Sen. John Cornyn, Sen. Diane Feinstein and Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse.
