While the symbol for the popular cryptocurrency Bitcoin, ₿, is commonly used to represent Bitcoin, Ƀ has been proposed as a substitute. The symbol for the Thai baht, ฿ (U+0E3F), most closely matches the aforementioned Bitcoin logo. As such, it is not uncommon to see it used to represent Bitcoin. However, this causes possible confusion with the baht while Ƀ has no other uses related to currency.
