The base62 encoding scheme uses 62 characters. The characters consist of the capital letters A-Z, the lower case letters a-z and the numbers 0–9. It is a binary-to-text encoding schemes that represent binary data in an ASCII string format.[1][2]

 123456789ABCDEFGH JKLMN PQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijk mnopqrstuvwxyz
= 58 characters = base58

0123456789ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz
= 62 characters = base62

0123456789ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz+/
= 64 characters = base64

In some fonts the 0 (zero), I (capital i), O (capital o) and l (lower case L) characters look the same. The 0OIl characters are not used in the base58 encoding scheme.
