is there an opportunity cost here of not being able to establish anything that could be made into something really special utilizing micro transactions? could we be missing out?
i don't know as much as i'd like about this but maybe the original coder(s) saw that it was worth the trouble and foresaw this problem
maybe whenever they see that its in their best interest to change they'll do it... i wonder what would trigger that? could take popular publication of the evidence showing lower bitcoin adoption rates or usage or drop in value due to the transaction fees resulting from their own operations.
Also, what about future transaction fees? What if the fees just keep climbing? Could it really break or seriously diminish utility? i'm sure you guys have a better grasp than i do, what could fees look like in 5-10 years if this trend continues?
