(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." That front end mining program will reportedly be the part that makes the whole system easier for the cryptocoin curious.

Hold on, hold on! Imma let you get back to what you was doin in just a minute. But, we ALL know Bitcoin had the BEST online scam of the year! So many things come to mind here... when is this asshat going to go away? Is he really so insecure (and insignificant/irrelevant) that he needs to be tied to a fake currency to stroke his already over-inflated ego? It's going to be a crushing blow to him when he finally realizes that we are NOT laughing WITH him.
