Users can now easily type in Bitcoin’s iconic “B” symbol. To find the new feature, make sure you have the Gboard app installed instead of the default Apple keyboard. Once Gboard is up and running, press and hold the dollar sign.


The Bitcoin symbol is similar to, but different from, the symbol for the Thai baht “฿”, which has a vertical line running through it.

The new feature surfaced on Reddit, where it quickly shot to the top of the Bitcoin and cryptocurrency subreddits.
