“The use of Bitcoin has not yet reached the level of sophistication like Ethereum or other Layer 1 assets. Other uses are required to unlock the full value of BTC. If Bitcoin can be used as capital in Web 3.0 then BTC will have a future as both a scarce and replaceable asset and as a useful asset in the more innovative side of the market.”

Bitcoin will always be the leading cryptocurrency, but may not always be the most known, accessible, and liquid. Bitcoin has the exclusive ability to become an irreplaceable digital asset due to scarcity, but NFTs can reduce the value of BTC somewhat. While Bitcoin’s scarcity is guaranteed by a supply limit while NFT is more dependent on social agreements.
