About the Bounty

Zeta is the premier under-collateralized DeFi futures & options DEX built on Solana. Zeta is unlocking the power of derivatives trading on a DEX by bringing CeFi derivatives trading capabilities to DeFi. They currently offer dated futures & options on $SOL. Zeta has numerous unique features notably under-collateralized trading (unlocking leverage & capital efficiency) & recently released new order types (Limit, Post-only, Fill-or-kill) - giving traders lots of flexibility in executing their strategies. All of this is packaged in a beautiful UX but also available programmatically via their open-source SDK.

Your Goal: Become an expert on Zeta’s trading experience either via the UX or programmatically via the SDK (bonus points for both!) and summarize your trading experience in an easy-to-understand fashion. You're welcome to write this review individually or in teams of 2. Bounties will be split among team members.
