Are bitcoin and its competitors viable currencies or just a fad that will fade if a speculative bubble bursts?

Do cryptocurriencies create economic value, or are they valuable because they hide transactions from governments? Will (and should) governments kill cryptocurrencies or allow them to develop into important major payments systems?
