It seems like bitcoin is becoming more obsolete as blockchain technology progresses. If BTC transaction fees will only get higher and the blockchain more congested, is it inevitable that BTC will be replaced by a different coin as "digital gold". If the idea is simply a store of value, surely something better will or already has come along. Is the fact that BTC is already #1 the only thing increasing its value? Just some speculation
Edit: I have a better understanding now. Thanks to all who gave me constructive feedback. "the best way to get the right answer on the internet is not to ask a question; it's to post the wrong answer."
