Anyone who calls #Bitcoin a private currency is either confused or purposefully lying.
Bitcoin, being open source, is a commons. Anyone in the world can access the network to recieve/send coins.
It has no private owner, it belongs to humanity.
I found the the original video where I first heard Bitcoin being called a private currency and decided to write a blog post about it.
Check the youtube video in the post.
