Hasso-Plattner-Institut became an associate founding member of the International Token Standardization Association (ITSA).
Hasso-Plattner-Institut (HPI) in Potsdam is Germany’s university excellence center for digital engineering. The Faculty of Digital Engineering, established jointly by HPI and the University of Potsdam, offers an especially practical and engineering-oriented study program in computer science that is unique throughout Germany. The educational program at HPI is provided by a total of 14 professors and more than 200 senior researchers, lecturers, and research assistants. 550 students are currently enrolled in the Bachelor’s and Master’s degree program in IT system engineering.
The International Token Standardization Association (ITSA) is a Berlin-based association of German law with more than 100 associated founding members. ITSA is a non-profit organization and special interest group aiming at the development and implementation of comprehensive market standards for the identification, classification, and analysis of cryptographic tokens.
So far various reputable organizations have already committed to join ITSA as associated founding members, reaching from corporates (e.g. Commerzbank’s Main Incubator, Bank Frick, MME, Börse Stuttgart) over associations (e.g. Bundesverband deutscher Banken, the German Investment Funds Association BVI), startups (e.g. Cashlink, solarisBank, CryptoTax, and Ambrosus) and universities (e.g. Frankfurt School of Finance and Management, University of Mainz, TU Munich, Hasso Plattner Institute or UCL Centre for Blockchain Technologies in London) to private members (one of the co-creators of the ERC20 standard).
