Staking Pools: A Governance Problem in the Making

Tried making a different kind of video. Let me know if you want more content like this!

Interesting thoughts.
If I understand it right, a person or a (cunning) pool can always freely decide to delegate to some other staking instance. Are you sure this will be the case?

If yes this brings up the question if a large pool X (I expect no single whale will be able to stake 0.5 up to 5%) can freely decide to “hijack” whatever pool he want’s just to cut down their revenues?
This pool X does not have to do this for fun, but with the clear strategy to smash an existing pool.
