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?
