According to Kirobo, a blockchain startup, Bitcoin sent to the wrong address can be canceled and retrieved. 

Until the right code has been provided by the recipient, the sender can retrieve the funds at any time [...] Kirobo does not hold the user’s private key and has no access whatsoever to the funds or their destination: the password simply governs whether the transfer is finalized or not

According to Max Keiser, Bitcoin could reach $500,000 thanks to a hash rate war between the US and Iran. Currently, Iran controls around 3% of Bitcoin’s global hash rate and Keiser thinks Venezuela can get up to 5%. 

And then at some point America will say, ‘We’ve got to enter the 21st century space race of mining Bitcoin,’ and then they’ll try to seek 20% of the hash rate, and then security goes up dramatically, and the price goes to $400,000, $500,000. — Max Keiser
