governance staking (veFOREX)

users can lock FOREX/fxUSD (80/20) Balancer Pool Token (BPT) into the handle governance pool to receive veFOREX - 'vote escrowed FOREX'.
holders of veFOREX, provide valuable 'locked' liquidity to the protocol, are in return are rewarded by being able to;
(i) participate in protocol governance,
(ii) receive a share of any protocol fees distributed to the governance pool, and
(iii) up to 2.5x boosted rewards & superior APRs across a whole range of protocol actions - providing liquidity, trading & converting or referring new users.
the longer the holder locks their FOREX/fxUSD (80/20) BPT, the more veFOREX they will receive and the larger their voting power and boosted rewards.
the minimum locking time one week epochs and the maximum, on year. 1 BPT locked for the maximum duration is equivalent to 1 veFOREX. a users veFOREX weight decreases linearly as the escrowed tokens approach their lock expiry.
