Just finished reading your article and i enjoyed it My feedback has to pertain to this paragraph:
Thus, by ‘throwing away’ your coins, you get the rights for life-time mining, which is a lottery among the owners of burnt coins. Naturally, the more you burn, the higher your chances. It is like buying a virtual Proof-of-Work hardware, which never degrades. Or as a Proof-of-Stake deposit you cannot get back.
I feel that the term mining does not apply when referring to a proof of burn situation, as there is never any mining. As far as I know, XCP is the only crypto currency to use the proof of burn method so far, and after the BTC had been burned, all participants received XCP and that was it, no more XCP has come or will come into existence, so mining isnt used properly here. And by the more you burn the higher your chances are, also seems a little incorrect. It would be the more you burn the more XCP you received
