Coinye is Dead - "You Win Kanye"
J Thoendell stashed this in Cryptocurrency
From the start, it has been unclear whether Coinye is an actual project or an elaborate joke. After the initial lawsuit was filed, Coinye's creators responded with a cease and desist letter of their own, saying the currency was based not on West but "a half-man-half-fish hybrid who is wearing sunglasses." While the legal battle plays out, Coinye still has not been released to the public — and now it looks like it might never be.
