Airdrop Guide — The DeFi Options Vaults Series (DOVs)
DeFi Options Vaults (DOVs) allow users to earn higher yields by automating options strategies. The options strategies used are mainly covered call and put selling. Options are sold for premiums to be injected back into the vault as additional yield. Read here for more information on DOVs.
Here are some of the DOV projects that have not launched a token yet. Using their mainnet/testnet might offer a chance for their airdrops in the future.
