BSO enhances Crypto Connect offering for US exchanges

BSO, a global pioneering infrastructure and connectivity provider, has today announced enhancements that have been made to its Crypto Connect product to meet increasing demand in US-based crypto exchanges.

Crypto Connect offers both low latency cloud connectivity and cloud-to-cloud connectivity. With dedicated bandwidth, no reliance on routing hardware and private and secure trading routes – it’s the most comprehensive low latency crypto trading solution in the market.

“Cryptocurrencies have established their place in the investment market after a decade of steady growth. With the emergence of specialised crypto trading firms and a growing interest amongst institutional investors, the need for low latency connectivity solutions in crypto is more crucial than ever.” said Michael Ourabah, CEO at BSO.

Institutional firms that engage in cryptocurrency trading cannot use the public internet due to security threats and unreliable performance issues. As crypto exchanges are hosted in the cloud and in data centres, an effective solution needs to support data centre-to-data centre connectivity, data centre-to-cloud connectivity, and cloud to cloud connectivity, all while keeping low latencies top of mind.

‘Over the last couple of months, we have witnessed more customer demand for low latency connectivity to US-based and global crypto exchanges, and BSO’s market leading technology and service continues to adapt and grow to meet market demand.’ said Steve McConnell, Head of Americas at BSO.
