Still the grand-daddy. Robust, scarce, battle-tested, truly decentralised and out of anyone’s direct control, it should form an essential part of a crypto portfolio. Yes, it may one day be surpassed, ‘flipped’ or used much less but even then it could remain a store of value that maintains a healthy market cap. Development via Lightning Network seems promising and it remains the most widely known and adopted digital currency at this time.
Destined for more growth, at least. Shame about the energy required for mining, but if sites can be found that are suitable it might even stimulate renewable energy innovation. The point is Bitcoin needs to exist as one hedge against… well, everything centralised and vulnerable to corruption and manipulation. The ultimate investment. Bravo Satoshi(s) for the story of our time.
