PWG1 - ITIN PWG2 - ITC PWG3 - Tokenbase






PWG3 supports and advises the ITSA Secretariat on the development and implementation of TOKENBASE as token analysis standard. Next to providing qualitative token classification data from the application of the ITC, TOKENBASE shall integrate and offer various market data feeds from different providers in order to develop a transparent and reliable data aggregation platform. The working group will thus focus on the development of such database, including technical aspects (e.g. development of an API) as well as the partnership management (e.g. onboarding of new data providers) and licensing aspects. The Working Group Head will work closely with the ITSA Secretariat in order to define the next steps for the development of TOKENBASE.


Exemplary topics


1. What data feeds should be integrated next?
2. What statistical methods should be employed to provide aggregated and cleansed data based on the individual sources?
3. How can TOKENBASE be marketed and implemented to support and foster research on token markets?
