Revamped ITM Options Pricing:

  • Implemented a fixed discount on the intrinsic value for all ITM options, balancing the market for both buyers and sellers and encouraging a broader spectrum of trading strategies.

Launch of the SDX AMM Dashboard:

  • A comprehensive dashboard providing insights into options positions, oracle health, protocol parameters, diagnostics, and hedging history.
  • Aimed at enhancing transparency and trust in the SDX platform. Check it out here: https://sdx.markets/dashboard

Powering BONKrewards with Armada

Introducing BONKrewards:

  • A novel rewards system, powered by Armada, enabling BONK holders to lock their tokens and earn rewards from community-built BONK ecosystem products like BonkBot and BONKswap.

Rewarding Ecosystem Participation:

  • The more success BONK ecosystem products achieve, the greater the rewards for users who lock their BONK. Opting for longer lock periods boosts rewards even further!


  • 94,093 unique addresses have participated in staking
  • Over 2.7 trillion BONK ($70 million) securely locked
  • The average stake duration stands at 4.38 months

PSY Reloaded

Last month, we announced that our staking program was deployed to devnet and was going through rigorous testing.

This month, we’re excited to share that both Reloaded Phase II and III will be launched simultaneously.

PSY Reloaded Phase II (PSY Stake):

  • As a reminder, Phase II is PsyFi DAO’s new staking program for PSY token holders—PSY Stake.
  • PSY holders can lock their PSY tokens into PSY Stake for 0-4 years to receive 1-4x sPSY tokens in return. The longer the lockup, the more sPSY tokens users will receive in return.
  • These sPSY tokens are staked-PSY tokens that represent the user's ownership weight in the new governance and can be used directly to vote on governance proposals.

PSY Reloaded Phase III (DeMUX):

  • DeMUX is a tool built by Armada that allows aggregation of token streams to certain actions.
  • These actions can be completely controlled by sPSY token holders, which means that stakers have the ability to decide how rewards flow through the ecosystem.

More details to follow.
