Introducing: stMATIC SSOV


Another beautiful end of a week, another beautiful, beautiful product by my esteemed subsidiary so-called "Dopex".

This time, we are proud to announce the release of our stMATIC SSOVs which will allow users to write calls on stMATIC which our beloved option buyers can purchase. Writers will be depositing stMATIC, Lido's liquid staking derivative for $MATIC, which will allow them to continue earning staking rewards on their deposit.
The stMATIC SSOV will use MATIC/USD Chainlink Oracle alongside the stMATIC Rate Provider Proxy. Since this vault will be deployed on Polygon, please make sure you are on the correct network when trying to transact with it.

🎞How does the stMATIC SSOV work?

  • Liquidity providers may select a strike price and deposit $stMATIC
  • $stMATIC will be used to write covered calls at the writer's select strike price in exchange for a premium
  • Liquidity provider deposits will earn staking yield (inherent to $stMATIC) and incentives from Polygon
  • Options buyers will be able to pay $stMATIC to purchase calls from the SSOV
  • At settlement, if the option is ITM, the option writer's deposit will be slashed to pay option buyers
Rewards for the vault will be as follows
>~5087.79 WMATIC per week<

🎭 Write or Purchase stMATIC Options now!

The stMATIC SSOV will be launching expeditiously (i.e. by the time this article has been published, it should be live!). Please be aware that options trading is NOT a risk-free endeavor and we highly recommend all prospective option extraordinaire to do some so-called "own research" so you are aware of the risks.
