At the moment adding a cryptocurrency is not really supported. It would be practical to have additional fields... though the template editing is over my head. Could somebody look into it please? Specifically I'm editing Nxt at the moment (see Draft:NXT if the former is still red). The following would be real handy:

  • Coin supply
  • Official Website (I sued issuing_authority_website, but that's not quite correct)
  • Software License
  • Transaction times

I'm sure there is more - especially Bitcoin would need mining and such. -Thomas (talk) 04:32, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

Agree, I think though it may be better to create a new template rather than try to adapt this one. I will look into doing this. Greenman (talk) 12:52, 6 January 2015 (UTC)

If 1Edit

@Frietjes: I saw this edit. Shouldn't {{#if:1 always be true? --Obsuser (talk) 00:49, 30 December 2016 (UTC)

Obsuser, see the footnotes in the first example in the testcases. without something there, lists in the footnotes won't work. the easiest way to fix it is to wrap the input inside {{#if:1| }}. Frietjes (talk) 13:52, 31 December 2016 (UTC)

Frequency of notes/coinsEdit

Can someone explain what encyclopedic value "frequency of notes" and "frequency of coins" adds to the infobox? Talk/♥фĩłдωəß♥\Work 14:48, 1 January 2018 (UTC)

Currencies often have denominations that are technically legal tender but are not commonly seen in day to day use. For example, the United States two-dollar bill, the 500 euro note, or the 1000 Swedish krona bill. There is value in knowing this information at glance. Gordon P.

violations of MOS:FONTSIZEEdit

All the inline notes parameters (and a few others) in this template violate MOS:FONTSIZE because they end up rendering their text too small (they're using <small> in an infobox, which already renders text at a smaller size). I thought about BOLDly fixing this but wanted to discuss it first. —Joeyconnick (talk) 17:47, 10 October 2018 (UTC)

What do you propose? Gordon P. Hemsley 17:27, 19 October 2018 (UTC)
Removing all the <small> tags would be simplest. There are just the 12 instances. Maybe convert the language notes to actual notes or tool tips or something other than things that display big chunks of text in the infobox. —Joeyconnick (talk) 20:37, 19 October 2018 (UTC)
