Market outlook for cryptocurrencies

Professional traders intending to trade on the OSL Exchange could take note of the imminent and dramatic growth in cryptocurrencies following bitcoin’s third halving in May, says Matt Long, OSL’s head of distribution.

Further, according to Long, improving global regulatory measures will encourage institutions to confidently enter the digital asset markets.

Digital assets such as bitcoin and ethereum will become standard additions to institutional portfolios.

Institutions will be unable to ignore the Asia Pacific region, especially now that they would have access to a state-of-the-art exchange such as OSL. Moreover, OSL was the first to apply for a license in Hong Kong in November 2019 under the Securities and Futures Commission’s newly unveiled framework for digital assets.

Furthermore, OSL already has  10 institutional client contracts from around the world.

Also, OSL’s holding company, BC Group, is a publicly-traded Hong Kong technology and digital asset company. It raised USD 36 million (HKD 280 million)​ in a share placement in January 2020.
