2k16, 2k15, etc. As for me, these are years.
2k10-2010
2k11-2011
2k12-2012

In short, * k * is replaced by * 0 *
Also * k * is an abbreviated mower (thousand).
They also talk about the amount of money.
2k - 2000 $ (€, £, ¥, ₽)
5k - 5000 $

Answer 2
August, 2021

Everyone is looking for meaning, everyone is trying to connect it with something or understand what it comes from. When it all started, I also thought about the studio "2K Games" . However, even such a good developer should not so suddenly influence slang. Why would?

Everything is much simpler. Many memes, or just words, are borrowed from the West. English speakers love to abbreviate and say not "2016 (two thousand sixteenth)" but "20 16 (Twenty sixteen)". They also abbreviate round numbers like "2000" to "2k". Remember the mid-2000s, when many guys were carried away by the ruler and reduced "2000" to "2k", and "2,000,000" to "2kk". In my circle, since the 2000s, many say "4k for this ???" "a subscription costs 3k per year" and the like, I don't know about you.

If it were some kind of direct MEMO, it would be written on knowyourmeme.com (date base of memes, a kind of wiki ). Feel free to search for yourself.

Correction: what I wrote above proves that the first answer is wrong. This has been said before. However, here it can be considered a meme. Why now? Because before that on the imageboards they said something like "> 2014;> * do what is already outdated *", it is in this context that pictures with "2k16" began to appear on our imageboards and publics like 4ch.

2k16 - 2016.
It is "k" that comes from kilogram, kilometer, which means an increase of 1000 times. That is, 1 is increased 1000 times.

For some reason, there are many identical, but incorrect answers.

Abbreviations like Kilo and K, this is certainly cool, but they only say this about round numbers.

2k16 is the name of the games from the studio 2K Games, engaged in the release of sports games.

2K16 (and before that 15 and 14) it was in this form of spelling that appeared in the NBA, WWE, NHL series. Later it became a meme, and began to be used everywhere on the web.

Answer 5

I will add to the answers: "K" - a thousand. The mainstream has gone from the time when fashion began to be fashionable. When things consumed all the minds of schoolchildren. The logical chain can be carried out to Internet residents and gamers who were the first to get the idea.

Answer 6
August, 2021

I read the question and realized that I'm a fucking nerd ....

I say "..k" - in the sense of x1000, the year since 2005 and precisely because of computer games

But to speak without rounding to the nearest integer, it's kind of dumb .... "Two" to "sixteenth year" is stupid ....

But "it costs about 2k rubles" - that's already much more logical ...

Answer 7
August, 2021

The letter k means "kilo" - "thousand", such as a kilogram (thousand grams), kilometer, and not from the word mower, lol) Often used on the Internet.

Answer 8
August, 2021

I will add to the first answer. In general, this is a popular abbreviation in English. I also remember the computer game "King's Bounty", where money was written in this way through this reduction. K = 1000.

Answer 9
August, 2021

2k - 2 thousand or 2 "mowers"
ie 2 thousand 16th year - so that it was certainly clear from where? the first time it was mentioned on 2ch.hk , and then they started to force similar publics
and it's not mainstream. far not.
