Ripple update: Could there be alternatives to burning the fee?
After giving this a great deal of thought I came to the conclusion that perhaps the fees should be given to those individuals running validators nodes. Currently there is no profit in running a validator node (except to help secure your own transactions). Perhaps the accumulation of the small fee that is normally burned would help offset some of the costs incurred when running a validator node. To me it seems much less wasteful and more sustainable than simply burning the fee.
