Nobody owns open ecoin network much like no one owns the technology behind email. Being open means that they are controlled by all users around the world. Similar to other open source projects like Linux, developers are always working on adding services and improving the core software, but change only happens when users adopt improvements – not when a central group decides to release a new version.  In order to stay compatible with each other, all users need to use software complying with the same rules.  Open ecoins work correctly with a complete consensus among all users. Therefore, all users and developers have a strong incentive to protect this consensus.
