Another point they don't mention in that article: While there's a mining limit of 21 million BTC, which will take more than a hundred years to mine, you also have to take into account the 'lost' coins. Thousands/millions of coins have been lost already and every day someone loses access to more. By the time the 21 million limit is reached, I'd be surprised if more than half of that figure is still in circulation.
