Decimal values in the quibinary code

In terms of structure, the first bit shifts forward one bit position for every second digit, while the second bit is always represented by a Least Significant Bit( LSB) or by the bit preceding it. The quibinary code is redundant and error- proof. However, it is hardly ever used because its 7 bits do not fit into the byte scheme(8 bits).
