Yes, copper has high melting point. It is a good conductor of electricity. So, we use tungsten wire as a fuse wire which has low melting point but not use copper wire.

Why don’t we use copper wires everywhere?

On the other hand, copper wire cannot be used as a fuse wire because it has a high melting point(1094 deg C approx). Copper will not melt easily when a high electric current passes through it and may damage the electrical appliances.
