Introducing Coinye West…
Noisey reports that a new e-currency or cryptocurrency named after Kanye West is about to be released, dubbed Coinye West. The currency is set to hit on January 11.
The creators of Coinye West are remaining anonymous "in case kanye gets pissed off," but the currency is reportedly legitimate. Coinye West has the currency of "we ain't minin', we pickin'." The currency will make it "easier for people to use cryptocurrency."
The creators added: "We chose to represent Kanye because he is and always has been a trendsetter, and he's always keeping things unique. I can picture a future where Coinye is used to buy concert tickets, with cryptographically verified virtual tickets, and other ideas I can't give away just yet."
The creators then later reached out to Kanye West on Twitter. You can check out their tweet below. West has yet to respond.
