(Hong Kong, 27 June 2023) RD Technologies Group (“RD Technologies”) and OSL, the first virtual asset service provider (VASP) licenced by the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) in Hong Kong, jointly announced today that they have entered a collaboration agreement.
The two companies will explore the use of RD Technologies Group’s digital Corporate ID solution, RD ezLink, to enhance customer due diligence efficiency and customer experience for OSL’s corporate customers.
The collaboration is not only a strategic move by the two Fintech innovators but also a practical demonstration of the increased vibrancy of the Fintech market in Hong Kong following the HKSAR Government’s policy commitment to embrace and support the development of the digital assets markets and Web3.0.
OSL, the revolutionary digital asset platform, is transforming the way institutions and investors manage their digital assets.

RD ezLink, the first digital Corporate ID issuance platform in Asia, provides corporate identity verification services for businesses registered in Hong Kong and overseas. The collaboration between RD ezLink and OSL would enable the latter to meet the regulatory requirements regarding corporate customer due diligence in a fast and efficient manner. An RD ezLink verified digital Corporate ID, in compliance with high regulatory standards, is an essential key to open the gate for businesses wishing to participate and operate effectively in the Web3.0 ecosystem.
Gary Tiu, Executive Director & Head of Regulatory Affairs of OSL, commented, “We have been a strong supporter of the local digital asset industry and we are keen to be working with different partners to contribute to the development of a world-class regulated and secure local digital asset ecosystem.
