“Yo Bitcoin, I’m really happy for you, Imma let you finish, but Coinye is gonna be the best crypto-currency of all time!”
This one is almost too ridiculous to believe. A new crypto-currency is coming this Saturday and it’s inspired by the most “creative genius” of our generation- Kanye West. On January 11th at 11 p.m., Coinye, an egotistical Bitcoin spinoff, will be available for purchase only with Bitcoin. The best part is that Kanye West isn’t even behind this new currency and the founders are remaining anonymous in case he gets pissed that they’re using his name. He probably will. They have even changed domain names within the past few days from “coinyewest.com” to “coinyeco.in.”
You probably won’t be able to buy any Teslas or trips to space with Coinye anytime soon, but some see the potential for success with this one. It’s uncharted territory with this little novelty crypto-currency riding on the coattails of Kanye West’s infamy, but anyone can actually make their own digital currency given you have the right data. It’s a perfect example of breaking out into an unknown market. Will this idea catch on? More importantly, will we hear another bout of insanity from Kanye soon? I hope so.
