1- Referendum 34, increasing the minimum nomination amount to 120 DOT, has been passed and executed.
民主公投 34，提高提名人最小质押金额至120 DOT，被通过及执行。
Note that if you are currently nominating with < 120 DOT, this does not mean you will be chilled immediately! Chilling others is a manual process and is restricted unless there is a large number of nominators (> 90% of the limit of 22_500).
There are multiple development efforts to reduce (and hopefully essentially eliminate) the minimum nomination requirement. See this Github issue for details:
注意如果目前你的提名质押 < 120 DOT，这并不意味着你将被立即冻结！冻结是一个手动操作的过程，并且被限制（除非在 22_500的人数中超过90%达到要求）。开发上做了很多努力减少最小提名人质押量的要求。具体细节见 Github issue:
2- Kian also has a non-developer-focused update on these efforts along with a description of the problem here:
