Our options settlement layer takes a unique approach to time specificity, strike price, and premium, enabling American, Bermudan, European and exotic options with no pricing assumptions.
Valorem options are permissionless. Write options on any ERC20 token, and transact with anyone. Our options use the ERC-1155 standard, lowering the viscosity of risk settlement.
Our clearinghouse settles options physically via a novel fair settlement algorithm, and they are fully collateralized. This minimizes counterparty risk, so you can securely hedge your risk.
We’re building Valorem to unlock advanced hedging strategies in DeFi, and enable more mature financial markets for digital assets.
We’re already in beta on Görli, and will launch our options settlement layer to production in Q1. Here’s what’s coming next.
The Valorem option underwriting system and clearinghouse will launch with documentation, user interface and ability for users to write, hold and transfer options positions.
Valorem has developed a decentralized exchange with order book, RFQ, and OTC capabilities. We will integrate this with the option settlement layer to enable peer-to-peer options trading.
Valorem will continue to build and integrate oracles, margining, and other DeFi primitives to enable more sophisticated and capital efficient options strategies.
