Hello, I am a 15 year old boy from Ireland and have been looking at Maidsafe for over a year now. I really like current the safecoin logo, but it is much harder to draw in comparsion to the €,£ or $. I am not too sure if everyday people would bother to write out the symbol, and might create multiple unofficial versions (sc,xsc or ç) which could complicate things, as well as that there may be some compatibility problems in countries that don’t use the Latin alphabet which given time could be a very significant part of the Maidsafe community (China,Russia etc). So, I downloaded inkscape and designed a new symbol.
I will go into more details on the philosphy of the design in the post below.
