The rapper’s legal team is trying to stop the new digital currency and internet hit Coinye West. The new digital payment method is expected to launch on January 11th, but West is trying to avoid this.
According to West’s lawyer, confusion is likely: “Given the many successes of Mr. West is very likely that consumers wrongly will think that Mr. West is responsible for the currency.”
However, the developers of the new digital currency aren’t stepping back, on the contrary. The launch date has been brought forward to the January 7th.
“We want to make this available to the public before they destroy it”, said one of the programmers. “They’ll still come after us, but that’s okay.”
This seems like a case between rappers and hackers. We wonder who is going to win this fight. Place your bets! (we accept bitcoins)
