(Newser) – "In Yeezus We Trust." Sound like a saying you want adorning your hard-earned cash? Well, a new digital currency might be sporting the motto soon. It’s called Coinye West—the newest in a series of so-called cryptocurrencies, like Bitcoin—only this time sporting the likeness of, you guessed it, Kanye West. The creators of Coinye say this specific digital currency will be a bit different. Speaking anonymously to the the crew at Vice's Noisey they said, "Our goal with Coinye West is to make it easier for people to use cryptocurrency. Right now, it's kind of a dark art for people to mine coins. We plan on releasing a front end to the 'mining' programs called CoinyeMiner."
