That I understand, however, the questions is, how do we know the BTC weren't stolen, and in control of the person(s) who performed the hack? One theory is that the BTC was seized by the US Government (as they took down Silk Road), which means they are potentially still in circulation, and not lost forever.
How do you know the BTC was destroyed in the hack? How do you know the BTC isn't sitting in someone's wallet?
That's a huge amount of stalking that went on right there. Serious invasion of privacy in that article. Quite disgusting and totally backs up his desire to be anonymous online.
The people who do the actual work are paid wages for what they do.
It's similar to how some investors get a building made. They put up the money, hire a contractor who hires laborers. Laborers never get a cut of the profits. Similarly, in movies, unless you are a mega star, you don't get a % of the revenue, if you are simply a camera man, you get a set wage.
If you are a super mega star of a programmer (I'm thinking along the lines of John Carmack or Sid Meyer) such that your name ends up on the box, then you might be in a different pay system as the others.
If you want your wages to be tied to the success or failure of the game, then you need to develop and publish it yourself as an independent.

No, what they do is they take an $89 piece of furniture, market it at $250 for 3-4 months, then 'slash' the price to $150 and watch the fools come and pick up a 'bargain'
What are your feelings on Slashdot Beta?

Slashdot should run a bitcoin exchange!
I'm paying €45 for 60/10 with no data caps. That is, it's a 2 year contract including my Galaxy S4 and all my minutes. I'd hate to shame our US viewers with what is available as a fixed line service here in Ireland.
My mobile phone is 60Mb down / 10 Mb up on a good day, 20Mb down 3-4Mb up on a bad day. Unlimited data.
The US has serious issues.
A cipher or a PIN
Write down the unique part, and remember the 4-digit appendage.
What happens to people who used WhatsApp so they could IM on their phone, without FB getting their phone number? How do I as a user prevent FB from getting my phone number now? Is it too late to delete the app from my phone and request record of it deleted from their service?
Does it matter because any of my friends have my phone number and are using WhatsApp and thus FB will get it from them if not from me?
Has that ship sailed?
