Many people say the blockchain has no owners. So what such people are basically saying is they don’t know that the blockchain is a protocol brought to life by the internet and protocols created by the US military and US companies. They also therefore don’t know that the internet is a communicating network of chips, processors, codes, computers, data networks and IP invented by US companies and rolled out by companies with US investments?

So basically, the internet is owned by the hardware and software that operates it, just like your WhatsApp, Facebook and Google are owned by their code writers and server owners.

It’s important to remember that everything the Americans manufacture from a chip, motherboard, server, computer, cellphone, app or platform, uses their software in which they have backdoors and switches to turn on and off.

In the case of the internet, ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) has centers in Virginia and California and there are seven keys all across the world, with which to switch off the internet. Now, ask yourself, if it is possible for an institution to switch off what it doesn’t own or control?

I’m sure many of you have also heard that in Dubai and China they have the capability to turn off certain parts of the internet and ensure that they are not accessible to their citizens. Now, imagine what the creators of the servers and ICANN can do.

The only time ICANN are likely to lose control of these protocols is when AI, which will write its own codes, overrides human control.

Now, do you still think that the blockchain that is run off the internet and a network of servers, has no owners?
