This problem will be solved partly by network own built-in reward program, in this network its built-in reward program, the miners will be rewarded for helping bitcoin transaction processing.
“If you come up with bitcoin transactions in dollars, the price is concerned, this is not very good. But if you have a circulatory system, you can get from bitcoin value rather than sell bitcoin.”
