Any asset, tangible or intangible, can be tokenized (represented in token form), recorded, tracked and traded on a blockchain. This enables many transactions to be faster, cheaper, and more efficient than ever before.

FOSTERING BEST PRACTICES & FRAMEWORKS FOR THE RESPONSIBLE GROWTH OF TOKENIZED NETWORKS & APPLICATIONS

The Token Alliance is an industry-led initiative of the Chamber of Digital Commerce developed to be a key resource for tokenized networks and applications. Token issuances have proved to be a powerful tool for startups and businesses. In 2018 alone, there have been more than 270 token sales raising over $5.7 billion. Comprised of 400+ industry thought leaders, technologists, and innovators, the Token Alliance is developing community-driven best practices and standards for the responsible issuance and use of tokens.

We published our first report in July 2018, “Understanding Digital Tokens: Market Overviews & Proposed Guidelines for Policymakers & Practitioners.” The report includes principles and guidelines for token sponsors and trading platforms to promote sound business practices and minimize unintentional regulatory risk. The Token Alliance is currently developing its second iteration of guidelines around cybersecurity, anti-money laundering, consumer protections and security token offerings.
