Who Needs Bitcoin When There’s JuggaloCoin?

Even with Bitcoin’s recent issues, the cryptocurrency concept remains hot.  And Bitcoin isn’t the only game in town, either.  There’s Ripple, Peercoin, Dogecoin, Primecoin and maybe half a dozen others.  Joining the field is JuggaloCoin.

That’s right: Insane Clown Posse wants to get into the cryptocurrency game.  If you’re down with ICP, then you can participate.  From Noisey:

On April 3rd in the Year of Our Lord 2014, it was announced that JuggaloCoin, a cryptocurrency meant strictly for fans of the Insane Clown Posse, will become a thing that exists in reality. According to the official site of JuggalCoin, the currency will launch today. You can buy it here.If you’re wondering why the world needs a Juggalo-specific currency, you’re asking the wrong question. Why doesn’t the world need a Juggalo-specific currency? They’ve got their own festival, their own pro wrestling league, their own Wikipedia page, even their own social network. These things need money to run, and with the American economy in a constant state of flux, it’s time to go rogue, motherfuckers. Don’t tread on Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope, because they will create their own currency on your candy asses.

JuggaloCoin.org claims to be working with vendors at the Gathering of the Juggalos to establish relationships that will allow JuggaloCoin to be accepted at the Gathering, which will in turn lead to the official ICP online store to accept JuggaloCoin, which will lead to the entire Juggalo universe dealing in JuggaloCoins, presumably allowing each and every freedom-lovin’, dumbly-tattooed Juggalo to go off the grid and exist in their own Juggalo Nation that knows no borders, decorum, or taste.

No word yet on a reaction from the Federal Reserve or the Bank of England.  However, you may have noticed that the Chinese yuan has been on a decline recently.  A coincidence?  Meanwhile, has anyone checked on shares of Faygo recently?
