DeFi Options is an open source decentralized options trading platform targeted at Layer 1 and Layer 2 chains, allowing users to buy, sell, and write cash-settled European call/put option tokens.
Our flexible structure allows traders to access or spin up their own on-chain peer-to-pool options trading liquidity pool where they control the rules (i.e set traded underlying assets, select price oracles, define pricing models, determine trading spreads, adjust permissions for traders and LPs, etc).
To provide an attractive, dynamic environment for both options traders and options writers for trading not only crypto options, but also foreign exchange options, commodity options and more.
Our protocol was built with scalability and flexibility in mind, and will be able to support all Ethereum/EVM-compatible chains, while bringing a more capital efficient collateral allocation model and diversified options offer to DeFi.
We believe options writers should be rewarded for absorbing the risk of issuing options. We also believe options buyers should have access to fair prices. And with these beliefs in mind, we designed the DeFi Options protocol.
