Scoop: Kanye West not amused by Coinye currency 

Though Kanye West may think his godlike face will someday grace the dollar bill, he’s not amused that a satirical Bitcoin rival has used his visage for its parody of cryptocurrency.

Coinye was created by an anonymous group of seven, according to the Wall Street Journal, and it went from being a “chatroom joke” to an Internet sensation in one week.

On the coin named after him, West looks like a fat fish in goofy sunglasses — a thing he surely doesn’t appreciate.

West’s lawyers sent cease-and-desist letters to the coders, but the geek squad is not backing down — even going as far as moving its website from a dot-com domain to one registered in India.

Do you think 50 Cent is feeling left out?
