Boost are given regardless of which pool/pools you voted for. The voting itself is needed to distribute the rewards between the pools.
In simple terms, this is a dynamic system with many variables. Thus, profitability will change all the time.
In simple terms, profitability is affected by the number of locked QUBEs, the locking period of LP tokens and the percentage of votes for each specific pool.
You will receive the same amount of QUBEs that you initially invested. For instance, if you lock 100 QUBEs, regardless of the locking period, be it 2 weeks or 4 years, you will get your 100 QUBEs back.
The boost is given regardless of which pool/pools you voted for. Even if you didn't vote, you'll still get a boost. However, if you vote, then the pool with your LP tokens will receive more votes, and, accordingly, more rewards.
Voting affects the amount of reward for a particular pool that will be distributed during the next epoch.
The rewards are given for participation in farming. veQUBEs do not bring any income without farming. Voting is not taken into account in the rewards formula.
The boost will be in all pairs that received from 1 to 35% of the votes.
No. Such a mechanic is not provided.
Locked veQUBEs do not increase the reward in BRIDGEs in this pool. On the other hand, the LP tokens locked affect the rewards in both QUBEs as well as other tokens.
The longer the locking period, the less QUBEs are needed to get the right amount of veQUBEs.
