If you have made bitcoin transactions lately, you might have noticed that it has been very slow. Currently, the Bitcoin network is flooded with transactions so it might take a while to get them all processed. Or you have to pay a big transaction fee.
This is not a surprise. This shouldn't be a surprise to anybody. It's been very clear for years that Bitcoin network will be in trouble if there aren't any solutions to the scalability issue. Because Bitcoin has also governance problems, they haven't been able to solve the scalability.
The message is clear for everybody who wants to see the financial revolution that Bitcoin promised to us: don't use Bitcoin. It should be abandoned.
You should use other cryptocurrencies that can scale.
Steem is one great choice. With very reliable three second blocktimes it's already many times better than Bitcoin.
