“This is ridiculous,” commented Redditor ‘miciomacho’. “[Bitcoin] just does not scale. 72 obstructs in mempool & & an average charge of [USD] 3.19 on the second block.” They added that this kind of charge wasn’t deliberate by design, however rather a result of an overcrowded mempool, where all the legitimate deals wait to be verified by the Bitcoinnetwork “By the way, if the mempool keeps being overcrowded the fees will keep rising because people just want priority over others to be confirmed,” the poster stated.
The real cost of a deal on the Bitcoin network has to do with USD 35, argues ‘harfatum’, stating that the majority of of it is supported by block rewards, “but as that diminishes the users will be forced to carry greater amounts of that burden.” Still, some people want to pay higher fees. ‘mysteelersrock82’ thinks this is a “small price you pay for having a truly decentralized network that is also the most secure network on the planet.”
On The Other Hand, “Ethereum transaction fees are ridiculous as well,” says says ‘phillipsjk’. Redditor ‘ma6ic’ also kept in mind the congested deals, arguing that “if the upward trajectory continues and fomo [fear of missing out] sets in, both networks are going to down to a stop.”
