Symbol for ZCash


#1

I see from https://z.cash/blog/funding.html 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.
