.

i. political or government intervention. For example China has many times banned bitcoins because of the threat it poses to thier currency.
.
ii. Bugs or software hack. There have been many recorded cases of some wallets apps been hacked thereby leading to consumers losing all their monies. So I will advice you only use Coinbase or My Ether Wallet.
.
iii. Protocols that can lead to panick or lack of trust.
.
Though Bitcoin is still an experiment,  but the biggest question is - "will it be widely accepted as a means of payment and store of value like Gold?"
Well I will advice you not to wait until its too late.
.
You can message me personally and I will expose you on how you can make #45,000 to #90,000 per month without spending. Whats in it for me? Well apart from the traffic I drive to my blog and the fact that I can't mine all the bitcoins that ever exist, I believe my post will be a source of inspiration to others who never knew of Bitcoins.
.
Note
- If you want to purchase bitcoins, I will advice you invest with money you can afford to lose. Cause value of bitcoins continually rise but no one can tell if it will fall.

1. The Basic Biology
Sex ed. told you the basics about a woman's menstrual cycle, but here's what's important to know for this situation. A period marks the end of the body's monthly attempt to get pregnant.
