Providing SSOV Liquidity

TL;DR

  • Deposit tokens to write covered calls or cash-settled puts
  • Receive premiums from option buyers and other incentives
  • Collateral may be slashed to pay settlement to buyers

What is the SSOV?

The SSOV allows liquidity providers to deposit base assets (e.g. $DPX for $DPX SSOV) for calls or stablecoins for puts to earn premiums from option traders and other rewards.
Depositors have discretion over option parameters, including:
  1. 1.
    Market: The market they are writing against
  2. 2.
    Type of option: Call or put
  3. 3.
    Strike price: Price used to determine settlement
  4. 4.
    Expiry: Duration of option (weekly or monthly)
Writers receive premiums for any options sold but may pay settlement to purchasers if their options expire ITM.
Deposits are locked for the duration of the epoch.
