Currently only 4k unconfirmed transactions. Once again, the sky didn’t fall. Much FUD was spread, alarmists and concern trolls had their fun, and now its over and everything is fine, just like it was fine the last time, and just like it will be fine the next time.

Without side chains will transaction fees rise as block rewards fall?

Transaction fees are currently minuscule when compared to block rewards. Even if transaction volume was 10x higher than it is now, this would be the case.

Is there any realistic scenario where transaction fees will not rise substantially to compensate miners for the effort as block rewards continue to fall over the next decade?
