cvxCRV Staking Reward Ratio Interface

Users with staked cvxCRV can view their rewards vAPR by clicking the "My vAPR" info icon:

Additionally, users can see what the vAPR would be in the case of receiving rewards as 100% crvUSD or 100% governance tokens by clicking "Max vAPR" info icon:

Users wishing to change their reward distribution can do so by navigating to the "Rewards Preferences" tab (alternatively, you can also access this on the "Claim" page):

Note: Percentages do NOT represent USD values. Picking “80%/20%” does NOT mean you’ll be distributed $80 worth of gov tokens and $20 of stablecoins. If CRV+CVX rewards are one pie, and crvUSD rewards another pie, your reward preferences, alongside everybody else’s preferences, decide how big your slice of each pie is.
