Katana is a yield generation platform built on Solana deploying covered call strategies to provide users with yield

Using Katana, you can deposit your stSOL to earn extra yield on your tokens through their covered call vaults.

The vault uses stSOL to earn yield through an automated stSOL covered call strategy. The strategy deposits the stSOL on PsyOptions while minting out-of-the-money stSOL calls. Katana sells the call options, earning the option premium as the initial yield for depositors. Should the price of stSOL be below the strike price at the time of the call expiry, the Katana vault will receive the full value of the sold options whilst repeating the strategy to compound stSOL returns over time.
