Things have changed...
In case you haven't read the most recent sidecut, there was a sense of urgency near the end of Lilah's speech at the rally. Whatever happened that caused them to need a lot of high-tech facewear, we'll have to wait and find out next time!
Blaze is more of an info broker than an arms dealer, so she's referring them to Jillina, a fixer who likes to get a little more hands-on.
Since it's never really been explained, Bitcoin "coins" has become the official currency of the Reformed USA; but most transactions in the underworld are dealt with in boullion (precious metals) or grit (small diamonds, under about 1/4 ct.) although some foreign currencies are also traded (Eddies, as Blaze mentioned).
Next Friday comic update will be Jade and Claire! Jillie should be getting there soon, too, but I haven't rendered that scene yet >.>
