Bitcoin is a decentralized digital currency, meaning it operates on a peer-to-peer network without a central authority. This means that no single entity or person owns Bitcoin. Instead, ownership of Bitcoin is determined by who has control of the private key associated with a particular Bitcoin address.
While it is true that some individuals or entities may own large amounts of Bitcoin, no one can truly own the entire network or the currency itself.
In terms of the technology behind Bitcoin, the original software was created by an unknown individual or group of individuals using the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto. However, the software is open source, meaning it is free for anyone to use, modify, and distribute.
