I see, thank you for the information. I have not yet voted on a delegate since starting my BitShare wallet endeavors. Does it matter if I participate in the voting process or not?
You can vote for yourself if you ran for for a delegate.
The direct implications stop there I guess.
However, as with any voting, the active involvement (especially with a good chunk of stake)
would benefit all.
Some delegates (developers, marketers, exchanges etc) rely on the delegate rewards for the compensation of their contribution. So, it would be nice at least to (learn and) support them.
