Call fee of 0.5% during each harvest()
This fee is used to cover the cost of each harvest() call.
It is a shared cost across all vault users and significantly cheaper than performing transactions individually e.g(A user clicks the harvest() function in the strategy he is reimbursed with a fee of 0.5% to cover the gas fees of the harvester)
Strategist fee of 0.5% during each harvest().
This fee is to provide incentives to the strategy developers.
Any developer who is capable to make strategies for auto compounding is promoted by awarding 0.5% fees on every harvest() to keep them boosted.
Developers can contact any cafe admins at https://t.me/cafeswap to submit their strategy for autocompounding
Vaults have a 0.1% withdrawal fee.
The main purpose of this fee is to prevent possible exploits from bad-faith actors. Without the fee, somebody could deposit just before the harvest() function execution and withdraw straight after that event, taking a % of the gains generated by legitimate stakers.
