Introducing SSOV-p - Single Staking Put Option Vaults

🎉 Dopex is proud to announce the launch of the SSOV-P - Single Staking Put Option Vaults
💰 In the initial batch, SSOV-p will be launched on Arbitrum, for the following tokens:
  • ETH
  • BTC
  • rDPX
  • gOHM
  • GMX
ℹ️ The vaults will work as follows:
  • Option writers will be able to deposit their stablecoins in the Vault
  • The stablecoin collateral required will be equal to the chosen strike price x amount of underlying tokens
  • SSOV will place the stablecoins in the Curve 2pool on Arbitrum and stake in the gauge to earn Curve transaction fees and CRV rewards
  • Option writers will write put options to buyers at fixed strikes that they select for end-of-month expiries
  • At the expiry, the users will claim back their deposits in the form of 2pool tokens
⏰ Deposits are open NOW and will close Friday 4pm UTC.
The SSOV-p Epoch will run from the time deposits close until 8:00 am UTC 25 February 2022.
Before we open deposits, we will notify users via Discord and Twitter. Put purchasing will begin immediately after the deposit period ends.
Note: The deposits will be open only for a few days, afterwards the trading will commence
SSOV-p Details:
  • Underlying collateral: Curve 2pool (USDC and USDT)
Put Option Pricing Details:
  • ETH and BTC put options will use Implied Volatility parameters (IVs) based on the aggregated levels from secondary option markets
  • rDPX, gOHM and GMX put options will use 30-day Realized Volatility (30d RV) based on the moving historical data
What is SSOV?
Similar to single staking vaults, SSOV allows 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 put 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.
