OptionFactory
OptionFactory uses the "MegaFactory" pattern, it is a contract that creates 4 different types of option contracts: PodPut, WPodPut, PodCall, WPodCall. Under the hood, it calls 4 specific "sub-factory" (aka builders): PodPutBuilder, WPodPutBuilder, PodCallBuilder, WPodCallBuilder.

This function is meant to be called by a caller who wants to deploy a new instance of a Put Option (aka PodPut) contract. Here is the initial step if you're going to deploy your option flavor.
It returns a new instance of a PodPut.
Input Name
Type
Required
Description
name
string
any
The option token name (e.g., Pod BTC:USDC 300)
symbol
string
any
The option token symbol (e.g., "PodPutBTC")
optionType
uint8
0 / 1
0 for Put, 1 for Call
exerciseType
uint8
0 / 1
0 for American / 1 for European
underlyingAsset
address
contract address
Underlying asset address
strikeAsset
address
contract address
Strike asset address. Works with interest-bearing tokens aToken from Aave.
strikePrice
uint256
any
Strike price (units of strikeAsset that buy 1 unit of underlying) (e.g., 12000000000 means you need 12000000000 units of strike asset to exercise 1 unit of WBTC.)
expiration
uint256
higher than current block timestamp
Expiration option date in UNIX timestamp (e.g., 1609401600)
exerciseWindowSize
uint256
higher than 86400 (24h)
Duration of the exercise windows in seconds.
isAave
bool
If true, deploys a different contract version that supports liquidity mining on Aave (claim rewards)
