Please familiarize yourself with SSOVs and Option Fundamentals before attempting to use this walkthrough.

With our new Calls as Incentives update, you must stake your position after depositing to earn rewards. Additionally, make sure to claim your rewards before withdrawing your deposit or your associated rewards will be lost.

Quick Access:

Accessing the SSOV

It should look something like this:

  1. Enter the SSOV you would like to write or purchase options for

Click the 'Manage' button on the card corresponding to the token and option type you would like to access

You can use the toggles in the top bar to assist in your navigation.

Congratulations, you have successfully entered an SSOV!

3. Connect your wallet

The top right hand side of the page has a "Connect Wallet" button.

Click "Connect Wallet" and follow the prompts according to what wallet provider you use.

Great! You are now ready to write or purchase options via our SSOV.
