Is there precedent for using this type of notation when expressing monetary units?
I’ve seen it before, but I cannot recall where, or if it was even in a valid use. If it is something that people find attractive and easy to read, we do have an opportunity to introduce a candidate for a long-term standardization that could be a differentiator between how values of crypto currency/assets are expressed, vs. how traditional fiat values.
As the code is currently written, Nu’s units are divisible to four decimal places, 0.0000. However, in the GUI and from the command line, if you run a command like getbalance, you are presented with an eight decimal output, 0.00000000. I believe that this is a UI defect that was overlooked during development, so I’ve opened an issue to ask for clarification on the matter.
I love this notation. This is how I learned to write numbers in school, and I think is part of some standards, I stumbled upon it today but now can’t recall where. A drawback would be that copy pasting these amounts into a spreadsheet or form will result in pains.
