  • ITIN: The token’s ITIN number and all data in JSON form for API access. Here, you can find even more data than seen in the frontend, like price, trading volume, market cap., block hashes, and more.
  • Website: A link to the token’s website, here it is
  • Block Explorer: A link to the tokens block explorer page.
  • Links: A token’s social media channels like Reddit, Twitter, and GitHub, as well as a link to the Coinmarketcap page of the token.

About ITSA

  • The International Token Identification Number (ITIN) is a 9-digit alphanumeric technical identifier for both fungible and non-fungible DLT-based tokens. Thanks to its underlying Uniform Token Locator (UTL), ITIN presents a unique and fork-resilient identification of tokens. The ITIN also allows for the connecting and matching of other media and data to the token, such as legal contracts or price data, and increases safety and operational transparency when handling these tokens.
  • The International Token Classification (ITC) is a multi-dimensional, expandable framework for the classification of tokens. Current dimensions include technological, economic, legal, and regulatory dimensions with multiple sub-dimensions. By mid-2021, there will be at least two new dimensions added, including a tax dimension. So far, our classification framework has been applied to 99% of the token market according to the market capitalization of classified tokens.
  • ITSA’s Tokenbase currently holds data on over 4000 tokens. Tokenbase is a holistic database for the analysis of tokens and combines our identification and classification data with market and blockchain data from external providers.

The International Token Standardization Association (ITSA) is a not for profit organization working on holistic market standards for the global token economy.
