I was checking out the Bitcoin website, and I've noticed something that I can't stomach :

The Bitcoin network is growing at an impressive rate and Bitcoin.com is forming new and lasting partnerships within the industry. Here are some companies we are working with who are fostering a healthy ecosystem.

I believe that Bitcoin is not a private company and it's owned by its community, right ? How is it possible for a company to partner with Bitcoin ?

    I would like to point out the bitcoin.com (last I checked) is in fact not to do with Bitcoin but, actually Bitcoin Cash. An important distinction. The primary resource for Bitcoin is bitcoin.org. – Willtech May 2 '18 at 3:01

There is no such thing. There are various communities and privately-run sites, but they are all distinct, and none are authoritative.

That's correct.

it's owned by its community

That's a matter of perspective. I would say it's not owned by anyone - not even any specific community.

How is it possible for a company to partner with Bitcoin ?

They're not partnering with Bitcoin. They're partnering with bitcoin.com, a privately-owned and controversial website.

  • You hit the bullseye, I was checking out bitcoin.com. Thank you so much, that makes sense now. – CryptoBird May 1 '18 at 18:44
