Bitcoin Alternatives Galore, but What’s the Difference?
There isn’t a BuzzFeed quiz to determine which cryptocurrency you are. But at the rate Bitcoin alternatives have been flooding the Internet in recent weeks and months, it can’t be long, can it?
The newest cryptocurrency, inspired by the aborted Coinye, a Kanye West themed-currency, is Kim Coindashian, or “Kimcoin,” a digital currency pegged around — yes — Kim Kardashian. It’s so new it doesn’t entirely exist yet, but its developers swear they’re not joking. And they are convinced the reality TV star will take to the cryptocurrency treatment better than her fiancé, who shut Coinye down faster than you could say “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Currency.” Can this one be different?
