Highlights of PsyOptions

PsyOptions’ activities

Similar to options in other exchanges, PsyOptions allows players to bet on the price up or down at some point in the future in a decentralized manner using Serum liquidity ( largest liquidity pool on Solana).

PsyOptions has 5 parameters for interactive use with the options markets, including:

  • Underlying asset: Basic asset
  • Quote asset: Property that both buyers and sellers agree on a price.
  • Contract size: The size of the contract.
  • Strike price: Fixed price at which the user decides to buy or sell.
  • Expiration: The expiration date of that option contract.


Buy and sell options

PsyOptions allows users to buy and sell options (Option Writer). Unlike on other CEX exchanges, users can only buy options contract options.


The project provides 2 forms of trading options in American style and European style. The American form of trading has been completed and put into use while the European style is still in the development stage.

  • An American option gives the holder the right, but not the obligation, to exercise until the expiration date.
  • European options give the holder the right, but not the obligation, to exercise at the time of expiration.
