Blockstream Dev Says Bitcoin "Fees Will Rise," Dash Is Committed to Low Fees


A developer for prominent blockchain corporation Blockstream has come out saying that Bitcoin fees will continue to rise. Meanwhile, Dash has a long-term on-chain scaling plan to maintain very low fees.

In a short but somber piece titled Dear Bitcoin: I’m Sorry, Fees Will Rise, Blockstream developer Rusty Russell paints a dark picture for the world’s first great cryptocurrency. He praises the benefit of a decentralized payment system, but insists it will never scale, saying that “Bitcoin fees are only going to rise from now on. Plan on it.”
