So, in Nano, who really controls the network? Or, more succinctly, what is the governance process of nano?
For instance, I know nano uses Delegated Proof of Stake. Does this mean that that the validators can decide to change the consensus rules?
I know that in Bitcoin, there are four majour blocs: miners, coders, users, and node operators.
Does the same apply to Nano? Are node operators distinct from validators? Also, can a random pleb decide to download the blockchain (lattice?) to help with verification of the consensus rules? How easy or difficult is it for a pleb to do this? What would it cost (size, bandwidth, and so on.)
Forgive my numerous questions. I'm trying to learn a bit how this project works in-depth.
