This is strictly informative. This is not to persuade you to buy eBTC.
It's taken tremendous fortitude to have the diligence to sift through the endless posts and FUD for accurate information. My mind has gone back and forth about this coin for days. Wondering if I should sell out and run with my 300% gains or simply wait. However, more and more I am beginning to develop trust for @SatoshiTwentyOne based on what this individual has posted in various places.
Humans make mistakes. And interestingly enough, hasn't every coin had multiple phases in its lifespan where there was tremendous uncertainty and lack of faith? And people sold out. In other words, it's a very good thing that we have these stress tests in all of the cryptos we are invested in. Let's you know who you are and what your true motivations actually are. Much of this game comes down to trust. Those who trust yes get burned from time to time, but reach much greater success than those who are so skeptical and cynical that they never take a risk in trusting.
Satoshi21 from what I've read seems a trustworthy character. We can always check the total supply of the coins. So at any moment if the creator exploited the bug we would know. But I don't think he will. The bug I think was an honest mistake, and in my opinion, I'm actually glad this happened. Because only those I believe who can forgive and see past this error and support the way to amending it should in the first place benefit from the possible future gains to be made on this coin.

What is eBTC?
"eBTC is an ERC20 version of Bitcoin on the Ethereum blockchain."
Why create eBTC?
"There are multiple reasons, firstly Bitcoin has issues with high transaction fees and slow block times, ERC20 tokens don't have these issues and also have smart contract capability. Secondly, there is currently no widely accepted tokenized version of Bitcoin on Ethereum which is pretty surprising. Thirdly, as eBTC grows it will display Ethereum's capabilities and strengthen it's stance among crypto-currencies. "
How many eBTC are there?
"There will only ever be 21,000,000 eBTC, no more, no less."

Take a look at this blog post written by the creator of eBTC :
"eBTC will have a supply of 21,000,000 tokens, it’ll be divisible to 8 decimal places, and you’ll be able to send and receive them just like you can with Bitcoin. An ERC20 version of Bitcoin has many advantages over Bitcoin right out of the gate, eBTC will be both faster and cheaper than Bitcoin, while also enjoying the ability to work with smart contracts. I believe that eBTC, with adoption, could be a real asset for Ethereum. ..."

Edit : New Update! (October 6th, 9:16 pm)
"Simply put, eBTC is Bitcoin on Ethereum. eBTC is not a company — eBTC is a community. Our long term goal and mission is to hybridize the best of Bitcoin into a utility token based on Ethereum’s Blockchain which will bring out the best in both."
"eBTC believes transparency is the deciding factor for any community’s success in the long run. We set this in motion with our ICOless and equal distribution of free eBTC to supporters."
"We have two “coin addition” petitions started at this time. One at Shapeshift.io and another at Cex.io. The bottom line with larger platforms is usually tokens will not be listed until the a value of function has been determined/proven. This means these exchanges will need to understand the underlying usefulness of eBTC which also includes it’s vision and community."
