Another day, another provocative move by another "Satoshi Nakamoto".
Emoji by Jedi
Today, an individual impersonating Satoshi Nakamoto, author of the Bitcoin whitepaper, created a very interesting petition on the global social initiative Change.org. He/she posted a picture with a Baby Yoda Meme and asking the Unicode Consortium (sic!) to add 'bitcoin/₿ to the list of emojis.
Compared to Satoshi Nakamoto, it looks like this prankster is an amateur when it comes to cryptocurrency because he/she also directed this petition to the following:
Btce, bitcoin, cryptocurrency, emoji, emotocon, btc
We Already Have One
While the majority of crypto folks treated this petition like a joke, some of them started to investigate whether the Bitcoin emoji exists.
The Unicode Consortium, which is responsible for creating emoji sets for iOS- and Android-based devices, added symbol U+20BF (₿) to its 2017 release. At the moment, 8 Bitcoin advocates signed this petition.
