How does it work?

A covered call position involves holding a long position in a particular asset, for example, SOL, and writing a call option on that same asset with the goal of realizing additional income from the option premium. This Volt writes covered call options on leading tokens.
By selling covered calls, you profit from high upside volatility and generate returns on top of your long position while markets are moving lower.

When should I use this strategy?

How long do Epochs last?

The Volt rebalances weekly at Friday 2am UTC. An epoch consists of holding a short call position until expiry. If there are net deposits, the volt will sell more options in the following week. If there are net withdrawals, the volt will sell fewer options.
