VIRES locking reflects your commitment to the protocol governance and therefore grants you the ability to earn your share of the protocol's income directly.

Relocking VIRES boosts your Vires Weight back to 100%.
Every block, the participant receives a share of the revenue proportional to his/her gVires.
Vires.finance markets take a cut of the interest that borrowers pay. The corresponding cut for each market is labeled as 'Protocol share' on the asset details page. This value can vary for different markets, configurable through governance.
The per-block revenue is calculated based on current market conditions(Utilization, Borrow APR, Waves Leasing APY, etc.) and market configuration(Protocol Share). Approximate dollar value is then calculated based on the oracle prices. Daily, Monthly, and Yearly estimations are performed based on the average block time being 60 seconds(1440 blocks per day).
The distribution is continuous, e.g., as the interest accumulates every block, does the distribution for Vires stakers. Participants can start claiming revenue the following block(usually within 1 minute after the lock).
There's no minimum lock amount. Unlocking starts right after the transaction is confirmed.
