I’m just curious. If lightning allows indefinite caching of transactions and in theory you would never need to settle on chain then doesn’t that mean that transactions on chain will only ever be few and far between ? Therefor miners would not be getting much in transaction fees and therefor disincentivized to secure the network ? Please help me understand why miners would want to participate in a network where lightning reduces on chain transactions to virtually zero thus eliminating miner fees ?

Edit: fixed typo
