International Token Classification (ITC)
Let’s unravel the crypto space together! ITC provides market players from business and academia with a comprehensive and extendable framework for the classification of cryptographic tokens according to various dimensions (economic, technologic, legal, etc.).
International Token Identification Number (ITIN)
BTC, BTX or XBT? 3 Letters are not enough! ITIN is a unique alphanumeric identifier for all types of cryptographic tokens. It enhances operational handling and transparency, thereby ending the growing confusion of duplicated, altered or varying crypto symbols!
International Token Database (TOKENBASE)
Let’s end the time of unreliable and incomplete data! TOKENBASE is a large-scale dataset for personal, professional and academic use covering 800+ tokens with +3 years of time-series data (market prices, trading volumes, etc.) linked to the qualitative ITC classification data.

Who we are

International Token Standardization Association (ITSA) e.V. i.Gr.

Cryptographic tokens running on DLT systems will soon form an integral part of various major economic sectors (e.g. financial markets, information and media, manufacturing and trade). As such they are going to provide utility and value in many different forms to business and society as a whole. Moreover, cryptographic tokens are also on the verge of representing a recognized institutional asset class. Yet, the current token markets still lack a tangible and holistic framework for the identification, classification and analysis of different token types, which leads to economic, technological as well as regulatory uncertainty and a lack of transparency for all players involved.

With the objective of addressing these shortcomings, the International Token Standardization Association (ITSA) e.V. i.Gr. aims at implementing comprehensive market standards for the global token economy.
