"Standard" for specifying (currency, issuer) pairs

Recommended Posts

What is the standard way to refer to - for example - USD issued by GateHub?

USD.GateHub

USD:GateHub

GateHub.USD

?

I've also seen USD+GateHub (Data API v2 uses +).

I second @RafOlP for currency_code.issuer_name or currency_code.issuer_address, which seems to be the de facto standard from early days. Maybe @mDuo13 can chime in?

 @enej from GateHub started using the USD:Bitstamp notation. So it looks like there is no "de facto" standard.

@T8493 , yes I think there is not official standard. "+", ":" and "." used in different locations. Personally I think "." is best option of the three. Visually not very intrusive and also "." is not encoded when passing as parameter through URL query string and also ":" is a forbidden symbol for windows file system folder/file names.
