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.
If we follow the conventions set out by the Europa Interinstitutional Style Guide this would be appropriate:
10 000 000 NBT
That is in line with @advanced’s proposal.
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.
