B with stroke (majuscule: Ƀ, minuscule: ƀ) is a letter of the Latin alphabet, formed from B with the addition of a bar, which can be through either the ascender or the bowl. It is used as a phonetic symbol to represent to transcribe the sound [β].
Since 2013, some people are promoting usage of 〈Ƀ〉 as replacement the orginal symbol 〈฿〉 for the Bitcoin digital currency. However, most Bitcoin users have strongly resisted change of orginal symbol.
〈Ƀ〉 is not generally recognised as a symbol of Bitcoin.
