Hong Kong cryptocurrency firm first to get approval for exchange licence


HONG KONG (Reuters): Hong Kong’s markets regulator has agreed in principle to issue a licence to cryptocurrency firm OSL Digital Securities, a unit of Fidelity-backed BC group, the company said in an exchange filing on Friday (Aug 21).

OSL said last November it had become the first firm to apply for a digital asset licence from Hong Kong’s Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) under new rules allowing crypto exchanges to opt into regulation. No other company has so far said it has received such approval.
