Where does come from?
Of course we all know the heavy dollar sign emoji comes from the symbol meaning dollars, $. That symbol originally came from the abbreviation used for Spanish pesos in financial documents drawn up by English speakers doing business with Spanish-Americans in the 1770s.
The emoji version of the symbol was approved by the Unicode Consortium in 2010, along with a slate of other money-related emoji such as the bank note with the dollar sign, the bank note with the euro sign, and yen with bank note.
Everyone is familiar with this S with a line drawn straight down its center, though the color varies across platforms. It’s green in Google and Microsoft and gold in Samsung, but there is no mistaking this is the sign for cash money.
Who uses ?
The use of the heavy dollar sign is pretty much limited to people who like, have, need, or want money … so, everyone.
It is often used in place of the word money to save the user time from typing out the whole word plus leaving more time to make dat money.
