@jwildeboer @dallin I can't seem to find the Chainalysis study that was based on, but I'm 99% sure it's based on an address distribution. Which says nothing about stakeholder distribution.

By that account all euros are also in the hands of maybe 200 companies, because no one keeps their own euros, but their bank keeps them. It's the same here. Coinbase has about a million Bitcoin, but it also has tens of millions of users. Bitstamp, Kraken, Binance,... just the same


@stevenroose @dallin@librem.one nobody ever claimed the Euro is decentralised.

@jwildeboer @dallin Fair enough. But by that account, at least the use of the term "owned" in the comic is kinda disengenuous because no one would deny you "own" the money in your bank account.
