The ETH Options Trading strategy applies the Black-Scholes model (a differential equation widely used to price options contracts) to current market data, including spot price, strike price, expiration time, and volatility. The strategy trades ETH options on Lyra and Thales, two DeFi protocols that have different option types, on the Optimism chain.

Teahouse will assess Platform Fees, Management Fees, and Performance Fees for this strategy.

Platform Fees

Entry fee: None / Exit fee: 0.2%

E.g., I initially invested 1,000 $USDC, and upon exit, I have 1,500 $USDC. I will have paid 1,000 * 0.1% = 1 $USDC at entry and 1,500 * 0.2% = 3 $USDC at exit, for a total platform fee of 4 $USDC.

Management Fees

1.7% (Annualized) divide by 52 weeks to get weekly fees charged: 0.03269%

E.g., I invested 1,000 $USDC, and 1 week later, the $TeaOptions+P token value increased to 150% of the original. When exiting after a week, I will incur 1.7% * 1,500 $USDC * 1/52 = 0.49038461 $USDC. Alternatively, if it takes a full year to reach 150%, then I will incur 1.7% * 1,500 $USDC = 25.5 $USDC.

Performance Fees

20% of profits made.
