Images of sat symbol in DIN typeface

README.md

At present, there is not a widely accepted symbol for the Bitcoin unit "Satoshi". This project seeks to establish the "sat" ($@) as the currency symbol for the satoshi. In theory, the "sat" would be aesthetic and functional. Using the "sat" symbol, Bitcoin transactions could be conducted similarly to e-mail communication (1000$@Alice).

The sat is in the early drafting stages and it is expected that different fonts and handwriting styles of this symbol will develop. The final form and function of the symbol is still fluid. This project puts forth a proposal of the symbol, its theoretical function, and provides basic infastructure for its adoption.

The Sat

Image files of "the sat" are available in '.Jpg', '.png', and '.svg'. Ubuntu and Times New Roman fonts are freely available for use. These fonts are identical to their namesake, except that the "$" has been replaced by the "sat" ($@). All contributions to the project are welcome and encouraged.

To use the font download "sat#_font.otf" > right click the file > install

You will now be able to use the sat character on your local machine.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
