There's been a lot of discussion in regards to governments such as China mining Bitcoins. Many hold this has a significant threat to Bitcoin's decentralized form. I find this unfounded considering many competing governments would begin mining Bitcoin in such a scenario; not just one. There are too many competing desires on this planet for Bitcoin to just stand under one.

Is there any real threat to Bitcoin besides the destruction of the internet itself?

I really don't think that Bitcoin economy with its ~25 million $ volume is any threat to any government or bank. We have a low profile for now. Let's see what happens if the volume is > 1000 million $. Then it's going to be a real problem for governments especially because of money laundering and tax evasion.

The entire universe is based on survival of the fittest. If Bitcoins can not survive the attacks from outside, some other crypto currency will evolve with better defenses. The future is crypto currency. Every destruction till then is just a lessons learned.
