NEW YORK — February 17, 2022 — Talos, the industry’s leading institutional digital asset technology provider, today announced the addition of the global OSL Exchange to its partner network. As a result, Talos users can now seamlessly access liquidity found on OSL’s global exchange, which aggregates order books across Asia, the Americas, and OSL’s white-label platforms, including its soon-to-launch European joint venture with Standard Chartered.
OSL is a subsidiary of the HKSE-listed, “Big-Four” audited BC Technology Group (stock code: 863) and is license-exempt under the Payment Services Act by the MAS in Singapore, OSL is also registered as a Money Services Business with FINCEN in the United States.
OSL’s total platform volumes have nearly tripled over the last six months, driven primarily by strong demand for its recently launched Americas platform. OSL Exchange – easily accessible through an advanced API and purpose-built for safe, secure, and compliant institutional digital asset trading – is underpinned by an extremely high-performance matching engine, resulting in some of the industry’s deepest liquidity.
Commenting on the addition of OSL, Talos Co-Founder and CEO Anton Katz said: “OSL has rightfully carved out a reputation as having both the technology and business processes required to support true institutional-level trading of digital assets. Our clients have explicitly asked for access to OSL due to its high-quality execution, so we’re happy to further expand our platform with the addition of yet another high-caliber liquidity destination.”
“Talos is the partner of choice for many of the institutions we work with because of its performance, reliability, security, and breadth of functionality,” said OSL North America Head of Business Development and Institutional Sales Jeff Howard. “Since launch, our strategy has been to build our business by bringing together a well-rounded ecosystem of participants. Providing the Talos community seamless access to our exchange will expand our ecosystem and further deepens the high-quality liquidity we offer.”
