Risq Protocol

Writing Options

How to provide liquidity
Liquidity Providers (LPs) act as Options Writers and are at the core of Risq Protocol members. LPs provide liquidity to the different Option Pools in order allow options to be purchased. Since all options on Risq Protocol are 100% guaranteed by the primary crypto deposited in the pool contract, when the LPs increase in liquidity, more options can be written.
Note: There are serious significant risks in providing liquidity to Risq Protocol that may not outweigh the the amount paid to cover the risk (premiums) and/or the current RISQ incentive program. Please make sure to learn how to manage the LP system before you become an LP.

How to become an LP

To join a $RISQ LP and start generating a portion of the and $RISQ rewards, there are 5 steps required: 1. You buy or already own the tokens you want to write options on in your wallet. (e.g. if you want to provide liquidity in the WBTC pool you must already have that amount of WBTC in your wallet.) 2. Select the LP you want to join.
Choose Pool
  1. 1.
    Approve the contract through your wallet UI.
  2. 2.
    Confirm the deposit reflecting all of the tokens that you will be depositing through the UI of your wallet.
  3. 3.
    Wait for your transactions to be accepted. By this time, you can add writeTokens to your wallet (i.e writeWBTC or writeUNI).

Things to understand before becoming a $RISQ LP

  1. 1.
    Write tokens are locked up for 14 days after minted. These lock-ups should not be seen as a disadvantage for the user but for the purpose of stability in the liquidity pools.
  2. 2.
    The Risq Protocol LP incentive plan will soon issue RISQ as a reward holders of writeTokens.
  3. 3.
    Risq Protocol LPs 'pay' the profits to successful Option Buyer. This opens the LP pool to a possible losses of the initial capital contributed. Even though Losses are dispersed across the whole pool this issue should be weighed before becoming an LP.
