The network enables a Payment versus Payment (PvP) atomic swap for instantaneous settlement on a layer-2 blockchain operated by digital asset custodians.

Bosonic has appointed Julie Briand as Head of Client Success and Sarthak Jain as Regional Manager of Institutional Sales for the decentralized financial markets infrastructure.

The London-based layer-2 blockchain infrastructure (dFMI) offers for real-time digital assets clearing and settlement that recently onboarded Bitpanda to its network.

The Bosonic Network offers a unique infrastructure for institutional clients that is both liquidity and custodian agnostic. The network enables a Payment versus Payment (PvP) atomic swap for instantaneous settlement on a layer-2 blockchain operated by digital asset custodians. It connects clients to exchanges and market makers.

I’m delighted to be joining Bosonic to bring my institutional expertise to bear in the digital asset world and help foster closer relationships between the two industry segments.”

Sarthak Jain joins Bosonic after years selling institutional enterprise solutions in the UK and Europe for Bloomberg and, most recently, crypto exchange Binance.

Sarthak Jain, Regional Manager of Institutional Sales at Bosonic, added: “The market for infrastructure that eliminates counterparty credit and settlement risk in the Digital Assets space is growing exponentially. I am excited to join Bosonic and help in serving its clients with best-in-class solutions that are demonstrably shaping the future of our industry.”
