A decentralized ERC20 Options Trading platform. An option is a contract that gives an investor the right — but not the obligation — to buy/sell a Crypto Asset (ERC20 Token) at a certain price within a certain period of time. Options Sellers receive ERC20 Option Tokens, generated against their deposited BaseTokens in Escrow, after setting the strike price & expiry time. The Option Seller then creates orders to our 0x Options Relayer to exchange the ERC20 Options Tokens against a Premium (fraction of Strike Price), paid by the Option Buyer in terms of QuoteToken. Exchange of ERC20 Option Tokens & Premium is done by 0x Exchange. The buyer can now choose to exercise his Option Tokens within the expiry time to purchase the locked BaseTokens at Strike Prices, in terms of QuoteTokens. Buyer can then sell BaseTokens in the market, thereby making a profit of (MarketPrice - StrikePrice) per locked BaseToken.
