Professor of finance at NYU David Yermack states that in a year from now they [bitcoins] may be all but worthless.

Another professor speaks. Will his prediction be as unreliable as Professor Bitcorn's or is he on to something?

"We'll have to wait and see but I wouldn't hold your breath that anything big is going to happen with Bitcoin in the future.
It wouldn't be the least bit surprising to see the best bits of Bitcoin be grafted into new products and services (like facilitating international transfers). A lot of the breakthrough products tend to get taken over pretty quickly by improved versions and I think that's likely going to be the fate of Bitcoin.
It's certainly played a role in raising issues and opening possibilities that people were only dimly aware of before. But if I owned Bitcoins, I would be a seller at the current market price as I think a year from now they may be all but worthless."

The Hard-Luck Texas Town That Bet on Bitcoin—and Lost

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 94%. (I'm a bot)
Bitmain, a Chinese company that makes specialized computers for "Mining" cryptocurrency, said it would invest $500 million in what was to be the world's largest bitcoin-mining facility at the closed Alcoa smelter, which, crucially, was still connected to massive electrical lines.
As Kyle sipped Shiner, Young remembers him talking about how Bitmain's facility could someday feature more than mining.
To optimize the chance of earning coins, the top mining operators run hundreds or thousands of miners 24/7. Imagine your electricity bill if you were constantly zapping instant oatmeal in hundreds of microwaves all day, every day.
Texas is hot and humid, which is not ideal for mining, because the computers require cooling; energy prices are about average for the US. David Yermack, an NYU finance and business professor who has studied cryptocurrency, says that other than Venezuela, where Nicolas Maduro virtually gives away electricity, "Texas is about the weirdest place I've heard for bitcoin mining."
In early January, Young heard that Bitmain would close the mining facility before it had ever gone online.
In November, central Washington-based mining company Giga Watt filed for bankruptcy, ending its multimillion-dollar plans to host miners.

Towards a Functional Fee Market for Cryptocurrencies

Abstract
Blockchain-based cryptocurrencies prioritize transactions based on their fees, creating a unique kind of fee market. Empirically, this market has failed to yield stable equilibria with predictable prices for desired levels of service. We argue that this is due to the absence of a dominant strategy equilibrium in the current fee mechanism. We propose an alternative fee setting mechanism that is inspired by generalized second price auctions. The design of such a mechanism is challenging because miners can use any criteria for including transactions and can manipulate the results of the auction after seeing the proposed fees. Nonetheless, we show that our proposed protocol is free from manipulation as the number of users increases. We further show that, for a large number of users and miners, the gain from manipulation is small for all parties. This results in users proposing fees that represent their true utility and lower variance of revenue for miners. Historical analysis shows that Bitcoin users could have saved $272,528,000 USD in transaction fees while miners could have reduced the variance of fee income by an average factor of 7.4 times.

Is Bitcoin really a currency? : A public lecture with Professor David Yermack from New York University
Bitcoin is a "virtual currency” made possible by the internet. One attraction for many is that the creation and use of Bitcoin as a currency is that is independent of any bank. But, is Bitcoin a valid currency or is it a speculative investment? Professor David Yermack provides an informed, unbiased perspective on this issue.

Awesome story Daniel M. Harrison - but I wonder if the answer is a much simpler one?

http://www.coindesk.com/predicting-bitcoins-next-price-rise/

Namely as I predicted that the total monopoly on Bitcoin mining has been basically "hostile taken over" by large Chinese miners, and they are now essentially controlling the monopoly on production.
Quark insiders that have gained a lot of education on Crypto see this as "common knowledge", but if you like to read and learn:

Fãs das Bitcoins em Wall Street procuram ganhar moeda

Entusiastas estão comprando e conservando a moeda virtual, apostando que ela chegará a novos recordes
Washington - Após desenvolver uma fascinação pelas moedas digitais, Jonathan Silverman largou seu emprego como gerente de fundos no Morgan Stanley em maio para arrumar outro como operador das moedas virtuais.
Como diretor de operações em uma bolsa de Bitcoins, Silverman, de 25 anos, uniu-se a um grupo de corretores de Wall Street, analistas, hedge funds e outros especuladores que estão apostando na nova moeda. Eles são atraídos pelo crescente valor da Bitcoin – que aumentou cerca de 50 vezes no ano passado – e pela novidade de serem pioneiros em um novo reino das finanças.
“Acho que a Bitcoin será a primeira moeda codificada, mas não a última”, disse Silverman em uma entrevista. “Será um ativo seguro primordial”.
Até agora, a Bitcoin, uma invenção volátil e pouco compreendida, é tudo menos segura. A pressão regulatória sobre a tomada de riscos de Wall Street e as reduções de empregos e salários na indústria desde a crise financeira elevaram o atrativo da moeda virtual para os banqueiros que procuram lucros em outras partes.
Alguns entusiastas da Bitcoin estão comprando e conservando a moeda, apostando que ela chegará a novos recordes. Outros estão abrindo empresas para operar, trocar ou armazenar Bitcoins. Ainda há outros que estão acumulando capital de risco do Vale do Silício e de outros lugares no intuito de investirem em negócios ligados às Bitcoins. Na grande maioria, tratam-se de indivíduos, não de grandes empresas.
“Eles estão liderando o restante de Wall Street”, disse Barry Silbert, fundador e diretor da SecondMarket Inc., uma corretora de Nova York que administra um fundo de moedas virtuais. “Eles estão entusiasmados com a Bitcoin”.
Alguns céticos
Os céticos com as Bitcoins não veem muito mais do que uma nova bolha financeira. Em um artigo feito no mês passado para a Secretaria Nacional de Pesquisa Econômica, o economista David Yermack escreveu que embora as Bitcoins sejam cada vez mais aceitas como meio de troca pelos comerciantes, elas não possuem duas características de toda moeda: são voláteis demais como unidade contábil ou como reserva de valor.
Os reguladores deram sinais ambíguos. Ainda que as agências americanas dissessem que a Bitcoin pode ser considerada um meio legítimo de troca, países como a China e os EUA fecharam algumas bolsas e países escandinavos impuseram restrições.
A repressão regulatória não suprimiu o interesse pelas Bitcoins em Wall Street, disse Jonathan Mohan, fundador da BitcoinNYC, um grupo de redes de comunicações. Uma festa na véspera do Ano Novo perto da Bolsa de Nova York atraiu 150 pessoas para um lugar atualmente chamado NYC Bitcoin Center, onde novas companhias podem alugar escritórios e finalmente trocar Bitcoins pessoalmente, disse Mohan.
Embora aumente o interesse de Wall Street, também aumenta o de Occupy Wall Street, o grupo de protestos que acampou durante meses no Zucotti Park de Nova York em 2011 para protestar contra a influência dos bancos. Os ativistas do Occupy veem a Bitcoin como uma forma de contornar um sistema bancário de que não gostam, tornando mais complexo o trabalho de ligação de Mohan.
“É muito difícil ter banqueiros e o pessoal do Occupy Wall Street na mesma sala”, disse Mohan.
Resultados diversos
Os primeiros dias da Bitcoin produziram resultados diversos para os entusiastas de Wall Street. Silverman, que gerenciou fundos negociados em bolsa durante a maior parte dos três anos que trabalhou no Morgan Stanley, dividia um apartamento em Manhattan com um operador do Goldman Sachs Group Inc. chamado Fred Ehrsam. Em 2012, Ehrsam mudou-se para San Francisco para fundar a Coinbase Inc., uma startup de San Francisco. Neste mês, a Coinbase obteve o maior investimento até agora para uma startup de Bitcoins, US$ 25 milhões.
Silverman não teve tanta sorte. Ele perdeu o emprego quando a bolsa para a qual trabalhava, a Tradehill, de San Francisco, não conseguiu achar um banco que administrasse as trocas de e para dólares. Destemido, agora Silverman está trabalhando em novos empreendimentos com moedas virtuais enquanto estuda a literatura econômica sobre o dinheiro.
“Eu adorava as bolhas quando estava em Wall Street e continuo adorando”, disse Silverman.

Is Bitcoin a Real Currency? David Yermack * Department of Finance New York University Stern School of Business December 1, 2013 Abstract: Motivated by Bitcoin’s rapid appreciation in recent weeks, I examine its historical trading behavior to see whether it behaves like a traditional sovereign currency. which is disconcerting to retail market participants. Bitcoin faces daily hacking and theft risks, lacks access to a banking system with deposit insurance, and it is not used to denominate consumer credit or loan contracts. Bitcoin appears to behave more like a speculative investment than a currency. David Yermack Stern School of Business David L. Yermack is the Albert Fingerhut Professor of Finance and Business Transformation at NYU Stern. He serves as Chairman of the Finance Department and Director of the NYU Pollack Center for Law and Business. Professor Yermack teaches joint MBA - Law School courses in Restructuring Firms & Industries and Bitcoi David Yermack archive page February 18, 2014 Bitcoin became a sensation in 2013, when the value of a single unit of the virtual currency rose from $13 to more than $1,000 and people began to use David Yermack. Yermack, also an early Bitcoin observer, was likewise struck by the technological elegance of the currency. Every bitcoin transaction appears in a permanent public ledger called the block chain, published to all nodes in the Bitcoin network as a novel solution to prevent fraudulent double-spending of the same bitcoin.
