Roll out will start with Gemini
New York, London, Paris 27th November 2018: BSO, the award-winning Ethernet network, cloud and hosting provider, and Kaiko, leading provider of institutional grade crypto currency market data, are pleased to announce a partnership to deliver real time market data with direct connectivity to clients from connected crypto exchanges.
The first implementation will see BSO delivering a live-streaming low-latency, secure market data feed from Equinix NY4 for current investors of Gemini, the first exchange to have collocated its servers in an institutional grade data centre, which allows for a cross connect to be implemented and thereby allowing Kaiko clients to access data directly.

Gemini is a New York trust company that is subject to the capital reserve requirements, cybersecurity requirements, and banking compliance standards set forth by the New York Department of Financial Services and the New York Banking Law.
Phase Two will extend coverage to additional exchanges and deliver new sources of data for market participants who have been waiting for an improved infrastructure around crypto currency market data.

Jeanine Hightower-Sellitto, Managing Director of Operations at Gemini, said, “It is excellent news that the infrastructure around market data is evolving and that Kaiko is providing enhanced connectivity to market participants.” Adding, “We expect that this direct access will support a wider range of participants to the markets as the space and demand evolves.”
