Well someone had to say it. Passwords, no matter how complex, are easily hack-able.
This is what BitCoin depends on, they call them "Miners".

The only difference, is that Transactions in Bit Coin, are much more complex, and harder to
crack than any password you can come up with, or (Generate).

2-factor (Cell phone) - is being touted as a cure, but once they get in, they have your phone
number, and can easily change profile setting to be their (burner) phone.

The fuss about the lengths, characters, and all that.... is also frustrating.

You could depend on the hacker to take the easier way out, and not spend the time to crack
a good password... but then again, it may incent them to spend the "crack time" , because
of the implication of it being a special case, which might reward the extra time.

Yes, I said "Crack time".

Keep It Simple, keep it moving.
