Resilience, adoption, growth. These terms will be all too familiar for many bitcoin users. Every hurdle that might have damaged bitcoin, has in many cases only strengthened the cryptocurrency. Even so, you might be surprised at how often bitcoin has died. It's not exactly a fair game. Vocal critics of bitcoin often have a much more accessible platform than its proponents. So to the casual observer, it may genuinely look like the end is nigh. And while that can have short-term adverse affects on price, just like a rising phoenix, bitcoin comes back stronger than before.
