If the USD continues to expand at its current decade-long pace there will be more US cents than Satoshis within the next ten years.

Currently there are about $ 0.008 of US M2 money stock per Sat (~$ 14,000,000,000,000 / 1,700,000,000,000,000 Sats)

If the US M2 stock continues to expand at around 6%/yr like it has for the past decade we should achieve 1 US cent per Sat within the next ten years, with my current estimate falling just before the halvening-after-next that occurs in 2025/2026.

Current monetary inflation rates for each are USD ~6% / Sats ~4%.

Here is a chart of US M2 money stock growth since 1980, provided by the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis.

As the Lightning Network continues to mature it will actually become more difficult to track the growth of the network. Detractors will claim that LN is stalling / failing, but it will actually be delivering privacy at scale.
