Bull market is back, transaction volume is up, mempool queue is up. We’ve seen this before, and if nothing changes we’re looking at $40+ Costs again.

So what’s the answer?

Segwit adoption is still at ~40% and has been stagnant for months[1]

Lightning network is still not mainstream, with just around 1000 BTC in total capacity and the average channel having just 0.0080 BTC[2]

Increasing block size at this point seems impossible just because it’s been rejected for so long – why would it change now if not when there were $40 fees?

So… what else is there? Is something being worked on that I don’t know about?
