Why 340 Ada Fixed Fee?

Why 340 Ada Fixed Fee? Why can’t we have truly 0% pools that give the staker no more inherent advantage over delegators?

Will the 340 Ada fixed fee minimum ever be lowered?

Never say never however it stops exactly what you’re wondering .

Delegating and running a stake pool are completely different things.

One takes a considerable amount of time and has real cost to run servers and compensate work hours = stake pool.
It’s running a business.

The other takes no time at all beyond picking a pool and delegating. Majority put zero thought into this, which is why there are so many over saturated pools where delegates get less rewards.

To want 0% is similar to asking why shops sell goods, why not give their stock away? Because Cardano wouldn’t exist without stake pools.

Businesses would go bust if they gave their products away for free.

Not necessarily, there are models that you can give a product and or service for free and still make a profit, you just need knowledge of the metrics. :vulcan_salute:

Ah nice, well maybe there will be some stake pool operators that can use this model to give a free service and others that need take a fee.

SPO’s have a list of wallets delegated to them. If somebody wanted they could distribute the 340 ADA to the delegators. Some SPOs are claiming to donate rewards to charities.
