# Wallet thousands separators - , or space

Why do some players have commas as their thousands separator while some have only space?

I.e
100 000 000 ISK
100,000,000. ISK

Why does not everyone have the same?

because in different parts of the world decimal separator can vary: in some countries its â€ś.â€ť(point) in other its â€ś,â€ť(comma). Thus thousands separator also vary to not confuse the 2.

Now crystal clear.
So basically it depends on where you live, game adapts to that.

Thanks all

It gets confusing for decimal separators too, countries that use a comma to separate thousands tend to use a period for decimals, countries that use the period or a space to separate thousands tend to use a comma for decimals.

The two most common thousands separator and decimal separator is comma â€ś,â€ť and point â€ś.â€ť; while most english speaking countries they use â€ś,â€ť as thousands separator and â€ś.â€ť as decimal separator, most other countries have that switched around.

The thousands separator is just there to make numbers easier to read, especially if it very big numbers, other than that it serves no purpose. Itâ€™s the same as when replaces certain amount of 0â€™s from a number and putting a letter in instead; like how 1000 can be written as 1k and 1000000 can be written as 1m and so onâ€¦

Thatâ€™s not even the weirdest of the digit separators. India, for example, uses the crore and the lakh, which means that you would need to figure out if buying 500 PLEX for 10,00,00,00,000 ISK is a scam or a deal.
