The future is clear: Bitcoin can and will do anything that altcoins can do, but better, using sidechains/layer2. And Bitcoin does it on the blockchain layer that is the most proven, secure, trusted, and decentralized.

Compared to altcoins, Bitcoin’s sidechain/layer2 functionality has more community, competition, tech, people, capital, flexibility.

And it is here today.

  • There is Lighting of course with near instant transactions and near zero fees at any scale.

  • There are fully anonymous transactions via ZeroLink and TumbleBit

  • Smart contracts and instant payment via RSK

  • Near instant and confidential trading between exchanges via Liquid

And much more underway now…and this is still just the dawn…not even sidechain gen1…just the sunrise.
