  1. In-built delta-hedging — Certain percentage of the deposited funds in the DOV would be reserved to hedge the delta by going long/short in a perpetual future platform.
  2. Multiple strategies — Once DDOVs integrate with a perpetual futures trading platform, numerous synthetic options strategies like strangle, straddle, and covered puts would also become possible.
  3. Permissionless DDOVs — Using on-chain oracles for pricing, anyone can launch a DDOV for any token in a completely permissionless way.
