How to Create an Option

Antimatter is a permission-less protocol. Anyone can create an option through Antimatter option creation portal. Antimatter perpetual option model only requires four parameters to construct an option. Because the option model is non oracle, it is easy to create an option with no external system interaction.

When you setup an option, there is no need to provide liquidity because you are only setting up the framework.


There are four major parameters for Antimatter perpetual options:

1) Target Asset: which is the asset you want to create option for 2) Stable Coin: which acts as the value peg to the target asset. In theory it works with any stable coins. 3) Price Ceiling: which is the highest price that an option will remain effective and is also the strike price of the put option. 4) Price Floor: Which is the lowest price that an option will remain effective and is also the strike price of the call option.

Option Creation

Before you start, you should go to the “Option Calculator” page in the navigation bar. The calculator assist you in deciding the Price Floor, Price Ceiling according to your anticipated Bull Issuance, Bear Issuance and most importantly your anticipated Underlying Currency Price. Then at the bottom of the Option Calculator you will see how much your Bull or Bear token will each be worth at the specific conditions you have entered. We suggest that you open another browser window for this calculator page so you don’t have to toggle back and forth when creating your Option for reference.*For more details please see Profit/Loss Calculation Tool section below.*
