The smart mining forthcoming feature will allow transparent CPU mining on the user's computer, far from the de facto centralization of mining farms and pool mining, pursuing Satoshi Nakamoto's original vision of a true p2p currency.
Monero has no hardcoded limit, which means it doesn't have a 1 MB block size limitation preventing scalability. As bitcoin has grown, the block sizes have stayed the same. This has caused the bitcoin network to slow down. It just can't handle a lot of transactions at once. For instance, the Visa payment network can handle up to 56,000 transactions per second. By comparison, bitcoin can only handle seven per second. Monero has no such preprogrammed limit. It's designed with a look-back window. That means the network reviews the preceding transactions and automatically adjusts the size of the blocks to account for transaction volume. That makes Monero scalable. And that means as more people use Monero, it will be able to grow quickly.
