Ripple update: why are there only ~115 validators?
if cost of running a validator is relatively cheap (under $1,000 for a computer) and negligible electricity costs, why aren’t there way more than 115 validators? can anyone spin up a validator and get included on this site within a month? https://xrpcharts.ripple.com/#/validators
