Bitcoin Got its Own Emoji on Twitter, Jack Dorsey Wants Unicode to Add Too

Social media giant Twitter has released a Bitcoin emoji that comes up every time you type hashtag Bitcoin.

This really isn’t surprising given that it's CEO Jack Dorsey is a Bitcoin proponent who believes the world’s leading cryptocurrency could be one day the currency of the Internet.

In his Tweet, Dosey CC’d the latest development to Unicode, the world standard for text and emoji, whose idea is that “everyone in the world should be able to use their own language on phones and computers.”

The letter B with two vertical strokes ₿ which is used to represent Bitcoin was approved in 2017 as a Unicode character, after being rejected in 2011, but not as an emoji. The first time Bitcoin sign appeared in Unicode 10.0 in 2017 and as of June 2017, font support for the sign was released in macOS, iOS, Android O beta, Windows 10 Creators Update, and several Linux ones.

Dorsey’s new bio has also been changed to highlight this latest development “#bitcoin”

In the meantime, the #Bitcoin hashtag with the emoji has been trending on Twitter.

Bitcoin enthusiast Rhythm Trader took to Twitter to share that this new development reflects, “Bitcoin is magic internet money.”
