BTRFS on a single drive

I am interested in using the new BTRFS option in the Proxmox 7 installer, on a single SSD. The installer wants me to choose a RAID level, however RAID is not something I plan to use, it's the other BTRFS features that caught my interest. Which RAID level should I choose for a single SSD setup?

RAID 0 is using a single disk or if you define mutliple disks, will span those disks without any redundancy.
