Potential for DLCs

DLCs (Discreet Log Contracts): The data suggests strong institutional and retail demand for Bitcoin. There’s high potential for a trustless collateralization mechanism to attract a significant portion of the 14.1 million BTC in active circulation.
If 14.1 million BTC are used in DLCs, that would amount to approximately $423 billion USD in value. At a 0.2% fee rate, the potential revenue could be around $846 million USD/yr.
