Here is genuine noob question, but I haven't been able to find the answer on my own.

In Sunny's paper, it says that the origin prime for a given block must be divisible by the previous block's hash.

But block hashes have letters in them. How do you get a number you can actually divide? - Fast crypto exchange with margin trading, advanced charts, and stop-limit orders

It is a common myth that Bitcoin is ruled by a majority of miners. This is not true. Bitcoin miners "vote" on the ordering of transactions, but that's all they do. They can't vote to change the network rules.
