Support on the GIVpower contracts

Proposal Information

Proposal description:
I will be working along with @amin and @paxthemax on the new GIVpower contracts, which will allow GIV token holders to lock their GIV on Giveth Projects for a predefined amount of time, giving them relevance in the platform. For further information, you can check the spec document.

I already started working on this pull request:

Proposal Rationale

The GIVpower feature will provide a new use to the GIV token, decentralizing the curation of the best projects in the Giveth Platform in a sort of Token Curated Registry (TCR). This will connect even more the classical Giveth Projects with the new GIV economy, making a more integrated platform for Giveth users and GIV tokenholders.

Expected duration or delivery date (if applicable):
I will be involved on the writing of the contracts during April, and they should be mostly ready by the end of month.

Skills and previous experience in related or similar work:
I’ve already helped @amin setting up the Unipool contract as a GIVgarden hook, which is similar to what I am going to do now. For further reference, I was the lead developer on the TEC Hatch and Commons Upgrade. I’m also a 1hive seed leading the development of the first implementation of Conviction Voting, still used today.

Amount of GIV requested:
