Mina Delegation Transaction Fees

Community member, Sushi Validator, noticed that some users are sending delegation transactions with massive fees, sometimes greater than 50000x the market rate. 

To clarify that for Mina Protocol delegations:

1: The fee field is the cost you pay to send your transaction. It is paid to the network’s block producers. 
2: There is no amount parameter; your full Mina balance will be delegated automatically during delegation.

Mina is working with validators and other web tools that facilitate delegation to make this more clear to users. Sushi Validator has built the dashboard* below to help participants who mistakenly set a high transaction fee. The dashboard helps to show who the recipient block producer is, so users can reach out to a block producer about the above-the-market-rate fees sent.
