Looking to exchange money but want a celebrity flair? Well maybe you should check out the new Coinye West, the new Bitcoin-inspired cryptocurrency. According to the Washington Post on Thursday, this will be the hottest cryptocurrency for the masses to use.

Coinye West scheduled to launch on Jan. 11 and as the name implies it a digital Kanye-themed currency. However, it might not be wise to ask Kanye West about the name as it appears the creators aren't even willing to reveal their names as they could be sued by the entertainer for likeness. Knowing this going in, the Bitcoin-inspired company has been very careful when talking to the media about the new currency.

All the interest in Bitcoin, Dogecoin and now Coinye West has people looking toward the future when using cryptocurrency for the masses. Looking to hoard money (or just keep it away from grabby in-laws,) the trend of keeping a few dollar bills has gone to the wayside. Someday kids won’t even know what a dollar bill looks like. Don’t worry though. If there is a Coinye West currency available, people will know exactly what it is because it has Kanye West's face on the front.
