Every option series go through an integrated ACOToken contract that is an ERC20 harmonious. This mechanism makes options interchangeable, fungible and set for additional DeFi combinations.

ACO’s Option Trading

Options trading is a valuable accessory when it comes to trading, particularly in the Cryptocurrency’s unstable market. This tool allows a comprehensive advantage and the capacity to hedge positions and likely produce additional income.

When one buys a Call Option rather than ETH, the person is taking the opportunity of leverage permitting the individual to make use of a little money to obtain accurate exposure to ETH preferably than using much money to acquire ETH directly. One can make money if Ether price rises without bringing the entire downside perils that would appear from hodling ETH. 

More so, losses are restricted to only what you pay for on the call against the possibly profound losses matching the total drop in ETH value if you had just purchased ETH directly. When ETH price is even, then you either lose some of your holdings or all of the premia you paid for on the call. 

Later you can choose to trade the call for a loss. But if Ethereun price moves up, then you gain from the increase. When you have to select whether you need to utilize your right to purchase ETH at a low value or sell the call and accumulate your profit. On the other hand, there is an alternatives approach that can aid you to guard against a slump in ETH price, though it doesn’t curb the upside possibility of ETH price going upwards. This procedure is known as the Protective Put Options Strategy. 

With the ACO platform, you can buy a Protective Put, which entails purchasing one Put for every Ether you are hodling. The Put ensures that the owner has the right, although not the responsibility, to trade ETH at the exposure price at any time, till the option terminates irrespective of how low ETH price decays in value. There is always a paid premium to cover the protection, similar to an insurance policy.
