Symbol for ZCash

I see from Funding, Incentives, and Governance - Electric Coin Company that ZCash appears to be going with “ZEC” for the symbol.

Small issue, but have you guys thought about adhering to the ISO currency-code convention for “supranational” currencies? That is, starting with “X”…?

ZCash could maybe take a lesson from Bitcoin and just do it that way from the start (a number of Bitcoin services started using “XBT” in addition to “BTC” sometime in 2013/14 when people realized that it’d be nice to be compatible with lots of existing currency software and conventions).

good idea. an ISO currency-code from the start would be good.

This is discussed in Design a currency symbol for adoption by exchanges. · Issue #103 · zcash/zcash · GitHub .

I like XZC as ticker.
