Kanye West has finally defeated the now-folded virtual currency Coinye, NBC News reports. Documents filed this week mark the end of the lawsuit, which had West going up against a currency featuring his cartoon likeness.

Earlier this year, Kanye's lawyers filed a trademark-infringement suit against Coinye, and shortly afterwards, the currency's creators posted this message to their website: "Coinye is dead. You win, Kanye."

NBC reports that Kanye's lawyers filed 84 court documents this year, naming 100 unknown people and a handful of named defendants. Several defendants lost the case by default when they didn't respond to the allegations. Three settled with West.

What was even the point of coinye?
Use the hype around Ye's name/image to make money with a cryptocurrency (same way doge coins used the doge meme hype to make the currency popular)

he missed out on a great opportunity.

instead of shut them down, he could've endorsed them for a cut of the profit they make.
that couldve been an easy 100k a year the way it was going.
