Who REALLY owns Bitcoin and is it a threat to security?

1M Ago
One of the reasons why Bitcoin isn't more widespread is a lack of transparency and trust in the company. Like many investments, Bitcoin is a risk, but the absence of a known owner raises even more trepidation in the public's eye. So who REALLY owns Bitcoin, and why is he or she operating under a pseudonym, Satoshi Nakamoto? A public face would not only increase the reliability and usage of Bitcoin but would allocate additional fame and fortune to the owner. Obviously, many conspiracy theories dominate the internet and there is no need to rehash such claims here. However, as a globalized currency, Bitcoin has the potential to devalue state currencies and prohibit fiscal sanctions against anti-humanitarian regimes. If it were just a startup, why wouldn't the owner come forward? It seems a little suspicious and harmful to the companies image.
