Years & Years have launched their own cryptocurrency, YearCoin

Their new album is only a few weeks away.
Years & Years have launched a new cryptocurrency as part of the lead up to their second album, ‘Palo Santo’.

The album is set within a fictional sci-fi world, which apparently uses “YearCoin”. Fans can collect the currency online by completing tasks such as listening to the band on Spotify.

“Humans are a rare commodity in the android community of Palo Santo,” reads the website’s blurb. “There is a small human rebellion being coordinated through illegal encrypted online communications and is funded by the cryptocurrency, YearCoin.”

“Save enough and become a free human with an official palo santo id card,” it adds.

‘Palo Santo’ is due for release on 6th July. Find out more about “YearCoin” at
