Dopex SSOV Testnet


We are proud to announce the official launch of DPX Single Staking Option Vaults on the Dopex Testnet (Kovan Network).

Decentralized Options Exchange | Dopex

Dopex is a maximum liquidity and minimal exposure options protocol.

What are SSOVs?

Similar to single staking vaults, SSOVs allow users to lock up tokens for a specified period of time and earn yield on their staked assets. Users will be able to deposit assets into a contract which then sells your deposits as call options to buyers at fixed strikes that they select for end-of-month expiries. SSOV options are either at the money, out of the money, or far out of the money.

How do they work?

  • Prior to the beginning of a new epoch, strikes are set for the month-end.
  • Users lock assets into this vault and select fixed strikes that they would like to sell calls at.
  • The contract deposits the users’ tokens into a single staking pool for farming rewards and also earns yield from selling covered calls.

In essence, users will be selling covered calls at low risk with no need for intensive knowledge on option Greeks.

📌 Minting DPX

Users can use the faucet to mint 100 DPX tokens.

Once you have minted you should have 100 DPX tokens available in your wallet.

📌 Depositing

Next, you need to navigate to the “Vault” page and select deposit.

This will take you to a new page where you can manage your vault.

On this page, you will be able to select strike prices, deposit, and withdraw.

📌 Selecting strikes

At the beginning of each epoch, there will be fixed strikes that users will be able to select strikes for.

Once you select the strike/strikes you want, enter the value of DPX you would like to deposit for each (if you have selected more than one).

Once you have done this you will have to approve your tokens for spending by signing the transaction in your wallet and then you can proceed to select deposit and again sign the transaction in your wallet.

Once your transactions have been approved, you have successfully deposited into the vault and you will be able to manage your deposits.

🚨 Key To Note

  • We will bootstrap the vault 8 hours from now.
  • Until then deposits will be open but purchasing will be closed.
  • Deposits can be made for different strikes.
  • Depending on the epoch, users will have to lock their deposits (stake) for 28/35 days.
