RIP to the people who sold OTM calls against their BTC for yield in the past few weeks/months. They'll have BTC called away at just 60k or 65k and they sold the vol far to cheaply. Save that covered call strategy for your Pepsi stock maybe. @AtomicFinance @danheld
After weeks of a steep contango curve #BTC is finally seeing a Contango IV Term Structure... This couple with a sharply lower skew (bid to puts)... Traders are buying puts into this rally.... 馃憖

Hey, I heard there was yield in front of that steamroller over there, I'm gonna go pick some up.

Not really a steam roller though. One wouldn't complain that the underlying rallied when they sold a cash secured put, would they?

True. I'm making a point about the protocols and apps that abstract away what's happening with the options, and give 3 easy click options in the UI for safe/medium/risky yield via options. I think its kinda dumb to own crypto and cut off the fat right tail upside.

Let NYDIG sell the covered calls for the institutions who are impressed with 20% return.
