Just one mention of Bitcoin - but nice to see it made the list in a matter-of-fact manner.

Transactions can optionally carry transaction fees. Whoever mines the block which ends up containing your transaction will get the fee. The Bitcoin client will sometimes force you to pay a fee when it thinks that no miner will accept your transaction otherwise.

Ya, they are just assuming their site visitors either know what bitcoin is and the few that don't should know how to use Google.

They seem to have a strange definition of "future". FPGAs have been the standard tool for large-scale brute-force cryptanalysis for ages.

Will pretend to do unverifiable things (while actually eating an enchilada-style burrito) for bitcoins: 1K6d1EviQKX3SVKjPYmJGyWBb1avbmCFM4
