In this paper, we propose two new solution schemes to solve the stochastic strongly monotone variational inequality (VI) problems: the stochastic extra-point solution scheme and the stochastic extra-momentum solution scheme. The first one is a general scheme based on updating the iterative sequence and an auxiliary extra-point sequence. In the case of a deterministic VI model, this approach includes several state-of-the-art first-order methods as its special cases. The second scheme combines two momentum-based directions: the so-called heavy-ball direction and the optimism direction, where only one projection per iteration is required in its updating process. We show that if the variance of the stochastic oracle is appropriately controlled, then both schemes can be made to achieve optimal iteration complexity of \scrO \bigl(\kappa ln \bigl(1\epsilon\bigr) \bigr) to reach an \epsilon -solution for a strongly monotone VI problem with condition number \kappa .
