Hong Kong – 18 November, 2021 – OSL, a leader in digital asset trading and software-as-a-service (SaaS), and member of BC Technology Group (stock code 863 HK), today announced that its SaaS trading volumes grew approximately 413% in the three months ended 31 October 2021, further highlighting the scalability of the company’s institutional SaaS business.
OSL’s Exchange platform including SaaS Exchange volumes ranked in the top 25 global spot exchanges on multiple days within the past month, with daily exchange platform volumes as high as USD220 million during the period1.
“We operate our SaaS business with a revenue sharing model, and because of this we grow as our clients grow,” said OSL CEO Wayne Trench. “This has resulted in increased OSL SaaS volumes throughout the year and a ‘hockey stick’ effect in the last few months in particular as our partners’ volumes have rapidly increased.”
In June, OSL announced a joint venture with Standard Chartered Bank’s SC Ventures to launch a digital asset brokerage and exchange in the UK and Europe under the Zodia Markets brand. The JV is focused on an institutional customer base including sovereign wealth funds, family offices, hedge funds and corporates and is currently undergoing a regulatory registration process with the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority and the Central Bank of Ireland. Former BC Group CIO Usman Ahmad began his tenure as CEO of the venture in August.
“We’re extremely proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish in terms of our SaaS partnerships, and we are seeing these relationships bear fruit as the global digital asset market continues to gain momentum,” added Trench. “We have incredible institutional customers, including Standard Chartered Bank and a number of other large financial institutions, with announcements on new business wins coming in the near future.”
