I have been doing some research on Solana, and it seems intriguing to me. I am not referring to the coin Solana but the actual network itself. I am interested in being involved as a validator as i believe in the project more so than it being about making a profit. Becoming a validator requires computational power (I’m guessing this is quite similar to mining bitcoin). Though validating on Solana requires the staking of Solana coins. I understand that some are of the opinion that Staking is not permissible? However if am a validator and doing computational work for the blockchain, would it be permissible to accept payment (through staking commission) for doing so?
Sorry for the long winded question. I hope it makes sense (i’m pretty new to the crypto world).
