Cryptocurrency is a dirty game

Did you miss out on the Bitcoin rush? It’s OK.

There’s another option for you. The Ol’ Dirty Bastard estate has announced that they are teaming up with Link Media Partners to launch Dirty Coin, a new form of cryptocurrency. (Interestingly enough, this is the second Wu-Tang member to get his own cryptocurrency, after Ghostface Killah.)

Dirty Coin will be traded on the AltMarket in the TAO Network using the exchange symbol ODB (shocker.) Dirty Money will help fund upcoming projects from the ODB’s estate. Fans will have to access to ODB goodies like merchandise and music. The long-term plan is to fund Barsun Jones’ — aka Young Dirty Bastard — debut album.

In a press release, Young Dirty Bastard says:

“Bitcoin is the future of money and all the fans want a part of the future of Ol’ Dirty Bastard. In the past, dad’s music was ahead of its time, so it makes sense that he would be ahead of the technology of money now.”

The Dirty Coin will debut on the AltMarket in the summer. Bitcoin move over.
