How could Bitcoin fail?

I’m intending to increase the amount of time and money I invest in cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. Investment is a bet: I’m betting that the long-term value of Bitcoin (many years ahead) will be larger than it is in 2017. It’s worth considering the possible ways in which Bitcoin could fail. A bet on Bitcoin is a bet that all of these threats won’t happen.
