Poll Review: Do You Prefer XBT or BTC?

It's Sunday, and you know what that means. It's time to take a look at last week's poll! In that poll we asked the seemingly age-old question of what the bitcoin abbreviation should be. Most commonly in the community, XBT or BTC have been widely used.

I wanted to see what the visitors of this website thought. So I put together a poll last week that was pretty straightforward: The proposed NYDFS Bitcoin Regulations...
