At individual level, all delegates in position 1-101 gained between 150k and 300k LSK.
This time there are no big individual losses, just minor losses for standby delegates, such as liberspirita [-41k], zt1349 [-54k], carolina [-94k] and delegates in lower positions.
It is still possible to receive 1 free LSK by minions (if you vote the “Heroes” list, no action required).
