  1. Sorry, but calling 0.000001 BTC a “Bit”, but then calling for example 1000 BTC a Kilobit just rubs me the wrong way.

    Either you have to call 0.000001 BTC something else, or Kilobit would have to be 0.000001 * 1000, i.e. 0.001 BTC.

    The same for the Milli/Centi/Deci values. Millibit/Centibit/Decibit should be smaller than “Bit”, not larger.

    So it either would have to be a different name for “Bit”, or a different suffix for all the Milli/Centi/Deci/Deca/Hecto/Kilo/Mega denominations.

  2. It’s a bit confusing that a bit is 0.000001 while a milli|centi|decibit is bigger… And that a kilobit is not 1000 x bit. Let’s just use the SI prefixes and Sat or BTC as suffix. No need to invent and misuse existing prefixes.

  3. Either use this scale (₿):

    * nanobit (n₿) = 0.000,000,001 BTC
    * microbit (μ₿) = 0.000,001 BTC
    * millibit (m₿) = 0.001 BTC
    * centibit (c₿) = 0.01 BTC
    * decibit (d₿) = 0.1 BTC
    * bit (₿) = 1 BTC
    * decabit (da₿) = 10 BTC

    Or use this scale ([⩧](https://satsymbol.com/)):

    * sat (⩧) = 0.000,000,01 BTC
    * decasat (da⩧) = 0.000,000,1 BTC
    * hectosat (h⩧) = 0.000,001 BTC
    * kilosat (k⩧) = 0.000,01 BTC
    * megasat (M⩧) = 0.01 BTC
    * gigasat (G⩧) = 10 BTC

    **Please stop being inconsistent.**

  4. Some more friendly name suggestions:

    Satoshi = 0.00000001

    Mike = 0.000001

    Milly = 0.001

    Cindy = 0.01

    Daisy = 0.1

    Bitcoin = 1

    Dick = 10

    Hector = 100

    Kilo = 1000

    Megan = 1000000
