Nevertheless, the foreign currency rates today Bitcoin is $7,959.1 USD. so, I still think that even if the Lightning Network turns out to be a viable solution to the scaling issue, it will need time to prove its worth; specifically, that it can handle bitcoin transactions without any problems. Because of this, I don’t think that bitcoin’s price will immediately go up whenever a solution to the scaling problem appears.
Taking all the above into consideration, I’m going to stick to my position that if you’re thinking of buying bitcoin now, you should only do so if you plan to HODL for a very long time (at least 2-3 years) and you won’t start panicking if the current price undergoes a correction of 30-50%. If a correction does happen, I think the optimum price at which to buy bitcoin is somewhere within the range 5,000 – 7,500 USD.
