Bitcoin fees are so high. When the Monero network sees 10x more usage won't fees also be extremely high?
Monero has a completely different fee economy.
For bitcoin, blocks have a set limit. That is why the fee will determine whether the transaction will be included in the block. Miners can only include a certain number of transactions and so miners will set the fee price. Users are competing for their transaction to be included in the block driving the price higher.
Because of a dynamic block size, miners have little control over the number of transactions they include in their block. Thus it is in the interest of the miner to include as many transactions as possible; otherwise, these fees will go to a different miner. That is why in Monero, the miners are competing for fees. This allows the users to set the price which is in their interest to keep it low.
Monero fees are expected to be so low that in order to give the miners some incentive, there is the tail emission. It is a constant reward of 0.6 for every block after May 2022. So while the fees for transactions may be extremely low, there is at least some guaranteed income for miners.
