Zeta Markets-The world’s first options and futures DEX

What is Zeta?

Zeta is revolutionizing options trading on DeFi, enabling anyone to effectively hedge risk against crypto market movement and events. Decentralized Exchange (DEX) built on the Solana blockchain.

What is Option?

The term option refers to a finantial instrument that is based on the value of underlying securities such as cryptocurrency or stocks. An options contract offers the buyer the opportunity to buy or sell — depending on the type of contract they hold — the underlying asset. Unlike futures, the holder is not required to buy or sell the asset if they decide against it. Each contract will have a specific expiration date by which the holder must exercise their option. The stated price on an option is known as the strike price.


  • Options are financial derivatives that give buyers the right, but not the obligation, to buy or sell an underlying asset at an agreed-upon price and date.
  • Call options and put options form the basis for a wide range of option strategies designed for hedging, income, or speculation.
  • Although there are many opportunities to profit with options, investors should carefully weigh the risks
