The three trading pools respectively are:
(1) AH pool, provide options for buying and selling.
(2) S pool, AMM spot pool using x*y=k, similar to Uniswap, approach for hedging Delta risk.
(3) Sigma pool, a volatility trading pool using the virtual AMM mechanism(VAMM), is used to hedge Vega risks.
KAKI is a relatively complex protocol. It ensures that option buyers can earn reasonable alpha gains, and also can sell options at any time for cash settlement. KAKI protects LPs for stable returns, hedging Delta and Vega risk and harvesting Theta and RHO gains.
