Generate income through covered call overwriting, which historically produces higher yields in periods of volatility

Strategy Summary

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 call options, the profit from an increase in the price of the underlying index above the exercise price, but continues to bear the risk of a decline in the index.
