Bitcoin currency symbol

I work for a company that does marketing and web software development. After I convinced my boss that we should inform customers about Bitcoin a few have opted to implement it into their webshop (a big success, we'll be drinking on that later!). Now I stand for a dilemma, of which symbol to use for the Bitcoin currency.
With such an increase in merchants accepting Bitcoin, we need to agree on one symbol to represent Bitcoin. I ask the help and vote from all of Reddit.

A proposition: ₥, the "mill," should be the currency symbol for mBTC.

This post outlines why ₥, the "mill," is the natural choice for the short representation of ฿0.001, and why its simplicity will make it much easier for us all to talk about mBTC.

Abstract and Executive Summary (TL;DR)

There is a serious use case for talking in terms of mBTC rather than BTC, since the price has continued to rise exponentially. Being able to talk in terms of mBTC means we can talk in units of currency that are more familiar to the average person in terms of purchasing power. However, the word "millibitcoin" is rather unwieldy, and it has no shorthand currency symbol. This proposal fixes all of those problems by proposing the use of 1₥, or one mill, to represent the denomination of ฿0.001. Furthermore, this proposal outlines a simple way to extend this notation to arbitrary SI/metric divisions of any unit of any currency, as in ฿75₥, Ł75₥, ฿1,000,000n̸, etc. Alternative stylizations of the mill are also provided for those who prefer alternate stylizations of the Bitcoin currency symbol instead of ฿.

The problem

The dollar has $ as its symbol. When we talk about 1/100ths of a dollar, we don't talk about cUSD or c$, but instead we have a different symbol ¢ for cents. So rather than being like "I found 75 cUSD (centidollars) in my pocket!" we can just say "I found 75¢ (cents) in my pocket."
Likewise, bitcoin has ฿ as its symbol (or Ƀ, or B⃦, or whatever). Rather than talk in units of ฿0.01, it's common for us to talk in units of ฿0.001, or 1 mBTC. However, mBTC currently has no established symbol, nor an established "short" name, so it's unwieldy to talk about. "This shirt costs 20 millibitcoins" isn't very attractive.

The solution

The natural choice is the symbol ₥, which is called the mill. It is the natural choice for the symbol for 1 mBTC because:
  1. The symbol ₥ already has Unicode support at U+20A5, and it is already called the mill.
  2. The term "mill" is superior to "millibitcoin" because it's one syllable and parallels the "cent."
  3. This symbol is not in widespread modern use to denote any major currency.
  4. Despite the obscurity of this symbol in modern times, the mill was at one point used historically to divide arbitrary currencies into units of 1/1000.
  5. Hence, it has an already-established general meaning when dealing with currencies, yet it isn't tied down to any specific established currency, and it's waiting for a currency that needs a division into 1/1000s to resurrect it - perfect for Bitcoin.

Conventions

The convention I propose for using ₥ is to parallel ¢ and put it immediately after the number:
Since it seems reasonable that other cryptocurrencies might follow suit, one can then prepend the currency symbol when context requires it:
Or you can put the currency name after, as follows:
I expect that the symbol ₥, by itself, will probably be associated with Bitcoin by "default," however.

Metric System Extensions

In the future, we may even find that 1₥ becomes rather large, and so we'll have to start talking about microbitcoins if that happens. We can apply the same basic pattern above by using the other SI prefixes instead, and putting a diagonal stroke over them. For now, we can apply the diagonal stroke to any standard unicode letter by following it with U+0338, as in: µ̸, n̸, p̷, etc, with short names just being the name of the prefix ("mics," "nans," etc). Some examples from the year 2200 (be sure you have good unicode support):
You'll note that this is backward-compatible with both the cent and the fact that the SI prefix for 100 is to have no prefix at all.

Variations

Some people have insisted that the single stroke through ฿ is a bad thing, and have insisted on a small horizontal stroke or a double vertical stroke instead, as in Ƀ or B⃦. We could insist on making these currency divisions have the same look and feel by using Unicode diacritics U+0335 and U+20EB. Examples:
Alternately, if you're feeling more minimalist and don't feel like stylizing things at all, you can skip the strokes entirely and go with ordinary letters:
This has the benefit of not requiring extra Unicode support, and being backward compatible with statements like "OMG, someone just did a market buy of ฿25K on Gox!"
EDIT: Added TheZombio's suggestion from here.

Could One Bitcoin Come To Be Worth $1 Million?

According to the official Bitcoin protocol, the number of BTC (the Bitcoin currency symbol) that can ever be mined into existence is capped at 21 million BTC. That’s it. Currently, just under 13 million are in circulation. Because of its finite supply, Bitcoin proponents believe that each BTC can only rise in value – perhaps to as high as $1 million. Bitcoin’s critics, on the other hand, worry that Bitcoin’s borderless nature make it the perfect vehicle for shady business ventures to flout international trade law and embargoes. To help shed light on the matter, Investopedia interviewed Gil Luria, Managing Director at the Los Angeles, Ca.-based investment bank Wedbush Securities, the first investment bank in the U.S. to accept Bitcoin as payment for fees. (Need a basic Bitcoin explainer? See our video, “What is Bitcoin?”)
Q: I’ve heard you say that one day 1 BTC could be worth $1 million. Do you want to expound on that?
A: Haha, I’ve qualified that statement a number of times. If Bitcoin lives up to its potential and becomes the working capital of international trade, instead of countries and companies sitting on yen, U.S. dollars, Swiss francs, they could just use Bitcoin for cross-border transactions. It would be far more efficient. If that were to happen, Bitcoin would be taking $10 trillion of foreign currency that sits in multinational companies. If that were the case, each Bitcoin could be worth $1 million

Bitcoin has the "B" symbol with the two vertical lines. The IOTA protocol has a stellar logo, but 1) it's impossible to draw by hand and 2) it's not used as a currency symbol. From a marketing perspective, are there any ideas for IOTA's unique currency symbol?

Are there symbols for cryptocurrency similar to the generic currency sign ¤ or Bitcoin's ₿?

When sorting data, I enjoy using special characters to keep things organised and noticeable. I'm therefore wondering if there are currently any official, unofficial, or proposed symbols for cryptocurrency similar to the general currency sign ¤.
Further, does anyone know of any communities or forum threads that are discussing this idea?
Thanks!
Edit: I do appreciate examples of specific currency signs and don't want to discourage people from sharing those, but I am also mainly seeking signs for cryptocurrency as a general whole, something representative of the larger family. I'd be stoked if I could find a more universal symbol uniting the various clans.

TIL Because Reuters and Bloomberg don't cover BTC as currency, the ISO won't recognize an official BTC symbol. Seems like that'd be an important Bitcoin milestone.
