Setting validator commission

Staking validators can earn a portion of any staked amounts delegated to them by setting a commission percentage. Commission rewards are useful to offset infrastructure or reporting subscription costs associated with running a validator.

It is up to a staking validator to decide on a commission value that is both competitive while also profitable. For example a commission rate of 0% will mean that as a validator, you will not accrue any additional rewards from users delegating their stake to your validator whereas a value of 50% means that you will earn half of all rewards paid out to your delegators. A reasonable commission value would be a percentage closely resembling other validator commission fees.

Note that commission rewards are only paid out to validators when delegators claim their own rewards.
