Reward Socialization

Given that validators are free to determine commission rates, delegating to validator A does not provide the same rewards over period T as an equal delegation to validator B. To ensure fungibility across validators, the protocol must treat all delegations as equal.
To achieve this, the protocol performs reward socialization such that all qAsset holders will all receive the same Asset rewards (that is, the collective Asset/qAsset redemption rate will increase), regardless of the validators with whom they choose to delegate.
However, the protocol is designed to be directed by users as to which validators they would like it to stake to on their behalf. This feature is called Signaling Intent.
