💧Open Shorts

To open a naked short position on either calls (spear tokens) or puts (shield tokens), liquidity providers must deposit collaterals to the option pool. Later, the deposited collaterals will be utilized and reserved for settlement when option tokens are sold to traders. Liquidity positions can sell both calls and puts while liquidity is active. As premiums from selling a call can settle a put, and vice versa, an LP's short exposure is only limited to net shorts in either calls or puts:
