Nexo and 35+ crypto powerhouses to bring together 50,000 Bitcoin emoji backers

Nexo, a leading digital asset platform, has joined forces with over 35 prominent crypto entities in a bid to secure a much-deserved Bitcoin (BTC) emoji, according to the information shared with Finbold on April 2.

With support from over 170 million crypto enthusiasts globally, the “Bitcoin Deserves an Emoji” campaign has garnered an impressive 10,000 signatures on the petition to the Unicode Consortium in just seven days, with an ambitious target of reaching 50,000.

The cultural significance of Bitcoin

The collective efforts underscore the solidarity within the crypto community and the cultural and technological significance of Bitcoin. 

Spearheaded by Nexo, the initiative has gained backing from a multitude of industry leaders including Bitget and Kraken, among others.

Compared to previous emoji campaigns such as Taco Bell’s push for a taco symbol and Tinder’s advocacy for an interracial couple icon, the “Bitcoin Deserves an Emoji” movement stands out with its robust support from 35+ crypto pioneers. 

Kosta Kantchev, Co-founder and Executive Chairman of Nexo, emphasized the necessity of a Bitcoin emoji given its massive market dominance, stating:

“Bitcoin’s $1.34T market dominance calls for a unified symbol on all keyboards. With 1.26B total Bitcoin addresses and 190,000+ professionals and tech pioneers pushing the global community forward, the Bitcoin Emoji is long overdue.”
