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.
