Coinye started to take form at the beginning of the year. On January 6, West filed a cease-and-desist order against the company. The creators of the currency were defiant at the start, altering the name a little bit in an effort to get around the cease-and-desist order from West.

The company also moved its servers to India while editing its logo. The original logo was a likeness of Kanye. The altered logo turned out to be Kanye looking like a fish, which is a popular culture reference to a “South Park” episode that poked fun at Kanye.



If you want a good laugh, watch the episode of “South Park” titled “Fishsticks.” It is from Season 13 and is Episode 5. You will definitely enjoy it.
