@netkn0t “should” according to the market perspective - if we build systems with lower costs & fees, hopefully will incentivize adoption.

Happy Leap Day!
Mempool size is 28MB

via Twitter Web Client

@netkn0t It’s not always good or bad, I’m just saying people have become conditioned to paying fees as percentages of value transmitted.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lopp

@netkn0t The fee to send value should be connected to the cost to send value. Which it is in Bitcoin, but not in traditional networks.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to netkn0t

The Internet’s success wasn’t dependent upon users understanding its technical underpinnings. This will hold true for Bitcoin & Lightning.

@Benathon @Technom4ge It’s possible if you are spending a lot of low value outputs, creating a transaction with a large data size.

Explaining “high fees” to users who collect dusty outputs generally doesn’t make them happier. Lightning Network will enable us to fix this.

Bitcoin fees being disconnected from value sent is great when you can send $1,000,000 for $0.10 but not so much when sending $10 costs $3.
