Btc is becoming a ‘gold’ for crypto, they aren’t related in the same way as gold/silver but that’s its position now. Basically BTC is slowly becoming inefficient to spend with due to high fees in periods of volatility and as the price increases, so do the fees. I have no doubt Btc will hit 100k/coin in the next handful of years
Tesla bought it, Apple bought it (I think), visa are planning to integrate Btc into your bank accounts and ApplePay made a deal with bitpay which will allow you to use Btc in the same way you do your card.
I said all this to say, if you’re gonna buy it and hold onto it for at least a little while then I think go for it. I feel lots of small cryptos will benefit from BTC reaching this gold/long term status as those with faster payments and lower fees will get bought more.
