What is the difference between B3 and KB3?

B3 and kB3 are units of currency supported in the latest B3Coin wallet (v3.1.1.2+). Through a soft fork, the B3Coin dev team implemented support for a 1000:1 currency conversion in the wallet to ensure the longevity and future proofing of the currency. B3 is now not only the brand name but also the unit of currency used to support micro-payment while in parallel, kB3 is there to support macro-payments and trade. As the B3Coin dev team continues to innovate in this space, naturally we expect the value of the coin to increase overtime — to handle this appreciation, the B3 wallet handles both units.

How does this impact the wallets and normal transactions/transfers?
The B3 wallets are backward and forward compatible with both units. If you send B3 to a wallet that has kB3 as their unit of display, it will show at the destination as kB3 and vice versa (see FAQ).

How does this impact the exchanges?
kB3 is the tradeable asset. B3Coin will be represented on exchanges as kB3, that is 1000 B3. When you buy and sell B3Coin, you are trading in 1000 B3 lots/bundles as kB3.

To summarize:
B3
* Brand behind the innovative team.
* Support for micro-payments (avoid decimal conversions / calculations).

kB3
* Tradeable asset.
* Support for macro-payments.

Reference:
* 1 kB3 = 1000 B3.
* Current Supply = 600 million kB3 (varies due to modern PoS system).
