I’d like to propose that we discuss standardizing on a unicode character to represent a peercoin. This character could then be used much like the “$” symbol is used to represent the United States Dollar.
To get the conversation started, I’d like to put the 17th letter of the greek alphabet, Rho, up for consideration:
Unicode Number: U+2374 HTML-entity Code: ⍴
In use, it would be appended to the whole units, and appear before any sub-unit. In cases where it was only describing a sub-unit value, it would appear in the front, as the “0” would not need to be included. This would avoid any confusion that occurs with the decimal mark between written system (e.g. “100,000” vs “100.000” vs “100 000”)
With ~96,000 characters to chose from, the existing unicode library probably has something that we could use, but if we determine that it doesn’t have the right one, there’s a process we can go through to submit a proposal to include a newly designed character.
