Dublin, Ireland and Hong Kong – 17 May 2022 BSO , the global pioneering infrastructure and connectivity provider, and OSL , Asia’s leading digital asset platform, today announced that BSO will become the low latency connectivity provider of choice for OSL’s institutional grade exchange.

BSO’s global low-latency network will allow institutions to connect directly to OSL’s exchange matching engines at high-speed, providing users with rapid access to the necessary infrastructure to support profitable high-frequency and algorithmic trading.
