I am building a non-financial app using Stellar. Basically the app is going to transfer assets between accounts. So I want to run a few standalone nodes under same (private) network.

As far as I understand there is no way of disabling transaction fees. Who I am I paying this fees to? I understand the concept of inflation and fees in Stellar, but I don't understand how the standalone node and private networks work. Do private nodes interact with public network thus needing to pay the network fee?

It seems that the fee can be set by the core administrator. See /upgrades?mode=set. What happens if you set it to zero?
