A not-too-technical read of the Verge hack. Great example of why getting "clever" and piling on complexity can be more of a liability than an advantage.

"The cleverness of this attack is in how it circumvents the barrier of mining difficulty instead of attempting to burst through it."

Includes a brilliant line on the net result of the hack. 😂
