This episode is a discussion on the impact of 0% fee validators between Brian Crain (Chorus One), Sunny Aggarwal (SikkaTech/Tendermint), Michael Perklin (ShapeShift), and Chris Remus (Chainflow). The discussion covers the trend towards no commission validators on the Cosmos Hub and opinions on whether this trajectory harms the network as a whole. The discussion also covers experiences on other networks, differentiation between validators, and goes into whether a protocol could or should be designed to intervene in such a market.
