There is an interesting post with an industry perspective from Daniel Masters on LinkedIn. Read it here.
My view is no one is going to kill Bitcoin. Not that it cannot be done. It is just that doing it would kill so many other things everyone want alive that it is unthinkable. Another intriguing question is how the technology versus the interests of all actors will shape the path of the financial services industry in the short and long term. Also, unlike things like music players or hair replacement by cloning, where users have little emotional involvement and probably little philosophical stake in how the stuff works, finance (and BTC within it) carry a lot of emotions and public opinion, hence the fascinating interplay.
