The question was originaly asked on Reddit by user "cyberkristiyan" https://www.reddit.com/r/CryptoCurr...tanding_xbys_proofofsignature_posign/dqyh6fd/ How is registration of STATIC nodes managed? Who "registers" the nodes, and what prevents corruption of the registration manager? So what if for example a corrupt registering manager decides they are only going to allow and register nodes which a single entity controls, resulting in an usurpation of the space? Who decides which node will be registered and which one will not? Is it automated, or is it a person who registers nodes. What sort of information is gathered to know the node before accepting it as a registered node. I'm also trying to understand how that differs from other systems where anyone can become a node if the only difference is some formality of "registering".
