Kanye wins ‘Coinye’ battle

Story Highlight

The creators of the digital tender have waved the white flag.

Kanye West has won the battle over the use of his image on digital currency Coinye.

The online currency first went up for sale on January 7th this year and Yeezy immediately tried to take legal action to stop it being marketed and sold.

Despite the developers remaining anonymous, Kanye’s lawyers filed a copyright infringement suit against anyone they could find connected with Coinye and it appears to have worked.

The creators of the digital tender have waved the white flag, but said better things were to come. Using the hashtag #BlameKanye, they posted the following tweet, linking to a cartoon with the message ‘Coinye is dead. You win Kanye’
