Apologies for any naivety in the question, as my understanding of the subject is still basic.
My understanding is that once all the coins have been mined, the incentive for miners comes solely from client transaction fees. When that happens, why would someone choose to use bitcoin and pay a transaction fee over fiat currency without a fee?
Does this mean bitcoin is fundamentally infeasible as a general use form of currency? If so, what are the specific use cases that make it more appealing, even with the necessity of transaction fees? If not, what would compel general use adoption?
