Crypto Community petitions for a Bitcoin emoji ₿ for increased adoption

or An anonymous person started a petition to get the Unicode Consortium, the official body that governs emojis, to add Bitcoin to the list of its currency symbols. While the petition is yet to take off, many members of the crypto community argued it could spike a positive conversation that could bring more adoption to the worlds largest cryptocurrency.Petitioning to get a Bitcoin emoji available for all Despite its $195 billion market cap, the cryptocurrency market is still a niche one. To play in the big leagues and join the ranks of the stock market, commodities, and politics, it needs more adoption. A lot of it.While many companies are hard at work trying to solve this problem and bring more awareness to the market, some believe the conversation about Bitcoin could spread with emojis.An anonymous person said, adding that having the Bitcoin character is a great sign, but that an emoji would be much easier to use.Another important point to make is the fact that emojis arent only limited to text messages. Being able to add a full-color emoji of the worlds largest cryptocurrency to platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram could give the whole industry more legitimacy.The widespread use of emojis on messaging apps such as WhatsApp, Telegram, Facebook Messenger, and Viber could also help spread the word about Bitcoin.This was the case with a series of other emojis that got approved throughout 2019. Earlier this year, the Unicode Consortium approved several new emojis focusing on human representation, aimed at removing stigma for people facing disabilities.As none of these emojis single-handedly improved the position of people living with disabilities, neither will the Bitcoin emoji make it a globally accepted currency. However, it has the potential to make the news and spark a conversation about the entire crypto industry.Share this post Posted In: Bitcoin, Adoption
