I don't have much to contribute but a worry of mine that I don't think is discussed often is the electricity cost. Running these increasingly powerful and specialized machines to mine bitcoin takes a lot of power, and we all know that we're not in the best position when it comes to world power generation, with a lot of it still running on fossil fuels etc. Potential bitcoin explosions worry me because of how much of our energy supplies we could end up consuming to keep producing bitcoin as a global currency.
