The reason 'k' is used to when talking about \$1,000 is that k is an abbreviation for kilo. Kilo is a unit of measurement that stands for 1,000, as in kilogram or kilometer. Some theories say that it is used because of how computers process data. 1k is 2^10, or 1024, which is known as a kilobyte or kb. However, most people look at it in terms of 1,000, ignoring the 24, and as a result use the 'k' to describe \$1000. It is more common to see '1k' or '100k' than 1,000 or 100,000.
