The r/bitcoin subreddit has been buzzing with fun and action lately since users are trying to find a proper symbol for Satoshi, the smallest divisible fraction of Bitcoin. While Bitcoin has had a logo for years, it seems that no one noticed that there is no symbol for a humble Satoshi.

A Satoshi (sat) is the smallest unit of Bitcoin. While a single BTC has eight decimal places, it consists of 100 million Satoshi. Its name derives from the mysterious creator of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto.

Lightning Network and apps like Tippin have spurred new talks about micropayments. What’s more, there is an ongoing #stackingsats (Stacking Satoshis) movement, which is fueled by the idea of saving small stacks of Bitcoin that will be worth a lot some day.

Amid all the action, some users began to submit their Satoshi symbol designs on r/bitcoin. Soon, it turned into a fun, unofficial contest, which managed to combine the two best qualities of the crypto community - creativity and humor.

Watch the latest reports by Block TV.
