This article was written a long time ago, back when Bitcoins were trading for $10.00. Nevertheless it is a really good one that even your grandmother could understand.

If by "best" you mean completely wrong on multiple levels and utterly useless then yes it is the "best".  Nothing wrong with simplifying a concept but if you do such in such a manner that you make completely false statements that kinda defeats the purpose.

Good attempt, but really poor execution.  Sad

It's a joke people. Maybe not funny to you, everyone has their own sense of humor, but I didn't expect anybody to think it was serious. Miners are trying to fill in missing pixels in a booby picture? Really...

The best part is at the end, See Also "Ponzi Scheme".

Any newbie that reads that might actually think it's accurate and true.

If they read that far and still don't get that it is a joke then they are already lost. The Ponzi Scheme was pretty funny too. I just love uncyclopedia :-)

Indeed you are right and it might be not easy to understand for newbies.

FYI, there are still noobs in here trying to mine Bitcoins with CPUs and questions that you or I might think are elementary. 

People are still trying to buy BFL Monarch's for chrissakes!   Tongue

Don't underestimate the uninformed newbie.
