There could be a nice picture, that is uncovered pixel-by-pixel, like one
pixel for every 1.000.000 processed keys, or a set of virtual "trading
cards", you get a card for every 10 2^28 blocks you submit. These cards
should have something interesting on it, mabye cool facts about RC5 or DES,
or about project-related thing in general.
Not direct cool graphs, but something that is related to your keyrate/the
amount of blocks you have processed. This would in turn mabye encourage
people to do more and more keys.
