Farming Fees

As we are no longer reliant on new deposits to fund development, our farms/pools/vaults will have no deposit fee. To help prevent flash/loan attacks and incentivize stable liquidity, we will implement a tiered withdrawal fee. The LP’s collected from these fees will be locked as protocol owned liquidity to help grow stable liquidity over time.
