This is likely the future we are heading: Bitcoin likely exists and continue attracting speculators as hedge of current fiat currency and government may move forward with their digital currency to compete in the meantime, regulation will impact existing trading and exchange platform to be able to track users and make them pay more taxes. Elon Musk likely will join mining business and potentially launch Elon coin with Elon payment so you and I can buy his cool toys. Of course, future is always changing and I am not the one to fortune telling here. #memes
