Coinye was a mineable cryptocurrency based on the famous rapper Kanye West, even using his likeness in the logo.
Not only was Coinye not endorsed by Kanye West, he even went as far as to sue the currency for trademark infringement. The project was quickly abandoned by the developers with nothing left on the website except “Coinye is dead. You win, Kanye”
If you are going to pick a rapper to base on a coin off of, who better than the biggest personality in rap, but next time, try and get official involvement.
RIP Coinye 2014 – 2014
