Those within the industry understand that one of Bitcoin’s most important features—and perhaps its true core innovation—is its decentralized structure. Bitcoin has no central control: no central repository of information, no central management, and, crucially, no central point of failure.

They are run by specific people, in specific locations, with specific computer systems, and they are susceptible to specific legal entanglements. This situation creates tension and certainly a little irony—we have a decentralized technology, yet most things existing upon it are centralized.
