Denomination ideograms for Quanta and Shor as svg, webfont

Abstract

Motivation

Ideograms are useful in conveying an idea or concept which is independent of any particular language.

Doing so as an SVG allows for usage in a wide variety of mediums. Further creating a webfont hosted either locally or from popular third-party services has the added advantage of being able to be easy to implement.

Specification

The reference asset format should follow the Scalable Vector Graphic (SVG v1.1) standard which has a wide userbase and can be incorporated into a font and hosted either locally and/or on third-party services.

This will be then compiled into the Web Open Font Format (woff) and Web Open Font Format 2 (woff2) standards.

In order to qualify whether a prospective ideogram is symbolic as a currency, it should be tested against a diverse background of people from different regions with a positive result being that it’s recognised as a currency.

For the test, every positive result can be recorded as 1 and negative as 0. These results would then be compiled and an average established with the final resulting floating point value between a 0 and 1. An overall result that’s greater than a value that’s to be determined through discussions will signify whether the ideogram works to represent a currency in a series of short-listing rounds.

Backward compatibility

Both SVG 1.1 and Woff/Woff2 are open standards and offer wide support.

Implementation

  1. Quanta and Shor ideograms should be uploaded as a gist in the SVG format and linked to in a comment as part of the comments-uri thread of this QIP.

  2. A diverse team will be elected to do an initial round of testing as specified in the specification portion of this QIP with a process where the submitter of the ideogram wont be identified.

  3. Ideograms would be short-listed and tested against a wider audience less familiar with QRL and short-listed further.

  4. A vote would take place to identify favourite currency ideograms

  5. The selected ideograms would be cleaned up and made into respective woff and woff2 files.
