I think Bitcoin will scale to meet the demand for the types of uses that BTC is good for. And since LTC is a straight-up clone, there'll be no appropriate demand left over. There will certainly be demand for *other* uses, but unless LTC meaningfully differentiates, it won't benefit.

Everyone seems to think that Tether's main problem was whether it's 100% backed...but it's main problem is that it's centralized. And GUSD and USDC are just Tether 2.0.

*Why* do people think on-chain assets can sensibly be "backed" by anything off-chain?! . . . I thought we were done debunking the "backing" nonsense 2 years ago. Sigh.
