Providing PPV Liquidity

TL;DR

  • Deposit $ETH to earn:
    • Staking yield
    • rDPX v2 fees
    • Incentives
  • $ETH may be swapped for $rDPX if rDPX/ETH ratio falls by more than 25%

What is the PPV?

The Perpetual Put Vault ("PPV") allows liquidity providers to deposit $ETH to earn multiple layers of yield.
$ETH from the PPV is reserved to write 25% OTM rDPX-ETH puts on $rDPX that is bonded into the system. In the event these are triggered, $ETH will be swapped for $rDPX at the corresponding strike price.

How does the PPV work?

Yield

During the STIP, PPV depositors are receving $ARB incentives only. Once this expires, the other revenue streams will be activated.

Staking

$ETH in the PPV may be redeployed to a staking provider such as Lido Finance or FraxFerry to earn native staking yield.

rDPX v2 Fees

The PPV will receive a portion of fees from the rDPX v2 system. The amount to be distributed is calculated at the beginning of each week and streamed linearly throughout that duration.

Asset-Settled Swap (ETH -> rDPX)

Each time a new user bonds in to rDPX v2, $ETH from the PPV is reserved to write 25% OTM rDPX-ETH puts based on the current spot price.
In the event the rDPX/ETH ratio falls below the 25% OTM price, corresponding $ETH from the PPV will be swapped for $rDPX. This means a depositor may be able to withdraw $ETH, $rDPX, or both based on the outcome of written puts.
The PPV uses the ERC-4626 token standard meaning depositors have shared exposure to the composition of the pool.

Withdrawals

Depositors may request withdrawals which will unlock their position at the end of the current 7 day epoch.
Withdrawals are only possible if there is sufficient $ETH in the PPV to support existing $rtETH supply.
