Why was it so important/essential that Satoshi hide from government because he created a currency that may compete with,and be a threat/dangerous to government fiat, but others like,Vitalik Buterin,Charlie Lee etc, don’t have to be in hiding? Why are they not nervous about being in trouble with the government? Is it because Bitcoin was the first, and biggest?

Bitcoins in hiding

So I had this Multibit (old version) that was moved to USB and moved back after a while. I’d done a system recovery in between (Win 7 64-bit). I was waiting til the price came up again since right after I got these BTC the value fell immediately, and has taken a long time to recover to previous levels ! Anyway the issue is I reset the blockchain but still can’t see the coins that I know are still there…I had 2 wallet backups therefore 2 wallets, and it has to be in one of them. So where’d they go ? -Thanks
