The oxohash was created to address the technical limitations of the popular # symbol.
The # symbol is a “special character”.
That means is cannot be used for creating some web assets.
Examples include domain names.
Those limitations don’t apply to images.
So by adding a horizontal mirror image of the # symbol to an image provides an alternative.
Please note : This is an update to the October 2022 entry when the concept was being explored at https://oxohash.com (#.com).
