This research piece was conducted in conjunction with @samchepal, who is a quantitative researcher at @ledger_prime, a global leader in crypto options trading.

An original version of this piece can also be found on Sam’s blog. We are huge fans of his work and were incredibly excited for the opportunity to contribute to this research!

Whether it be scanning through an early stage token’s Discord server for alpha leaks or studying on-chain ETH data, the best crypto investors rely on some form of data analysis in their investment decision process. Given these two methods are already quite well known, we…


Hey ZetArmy! We hope this article finds you somewhere peaceful, like your backyard, a beautiful field, or even quite possibly on the toilet. Lol. We’re stoked to bring you this week’s bi-weekly update.

In this article, we will discuss an overall project and community update, as well as insight into our plans for the next few weeks. Let’s get into it!

Project Update

The Zeta team is now all hands on deck building version 2 of Zeta. On the product side, we have run a couple of pieces of user testing — the first being UX testing with some of our awesome…


Hi ZetArmy, we’re here to bring you an article which teaches you how to make money in a CRAB market. When you want to make money, but you’re not sure if the price is going up or going down, this is the set of strategies for you.

Below are some strategies that will make money when the price isn’t moving (and conversely when the price is moving!), including straddles, strangles, and butterflies and iron condors.

Straddles

Straddles are a representation of volatility. They are made up of a long call and long put of the same strike, and usually the…

Going into the Solana Season Hackathon, the Zeta team had a clear objective — to build and launch a binary options platform on devnet. We managed to scrape something together in three weeks. Our intention behind this was to make a statement — we are a team that believes in delivering products to our customers and our community FAST. The reality is that this means the products we initially ship will not be perfect, but we are okay with that.

This is how we got around Solana Public Rate limits in our first release.

We value producing products quickly, and…


Hey ZetArmy! With the hackathon over, we are excited to bring back our fortnightly updates! Although we miss the craziness of hack season, we are stoked to share in-depth details of the progress we are making!

This article will cover our overall project and community update, along with a quick dive into the legendary things we have planned here at Zeta. Let’s get into it!

Project Update

You would think that things at Zeta have calmed down after the storm that was the hackathon. However, Zeta has kept the momentum going.

The list of Zeta contributors has swelled! We now have ten…


We’re super excited to talk about options strategies, including how to use single options and combinations of options to maximize returns and minimize risk. There are many options strategies available. This series of articles condenses options trading down to its largest themes — bullish, bearish, and neutral trading strategies.

  1. Bearish Options Strategies
  2. Bullish Options Strategies
  3. Price-independent Options Strategies

Overall, the dramatic price movement in the last few months makes us keen to kick off with bearish options strategies. …


ZetArmy! After countless cups of coffee, multiple all-nighters, and a round-the-globe effort to get Zeta up and running, we’re super proud to be able to present our Hackathon submission — Zeta’s binary options platform!
