About this Event

About the planned student initiative

The goal of the Crypto Assets Analytics student initiative is to conduct data analytics in the area of crypto assets and digital assets. Of course, this is Bitcoin and Ethereum, but also the entire world of 2000 crypto assets out there. It involves token intelligence, investigating arbitrage opportunities and of course learning on how to do such analyses.

Why deal with crypto assets in depth in the first place? They are on the verge of becoming a recognized institutional asset class and will most likely form an integral part of modern economies. Understanding e.g. the dynamics of Bitcoin and Ethereum is relevant to understanding the market. But those two only form the tip of the iceberg of crypto assets which are to be explored. How did different protocols perform? What can be said about the stability of stable tokens? Will a crypto asset stay the best safe-haven asset? And much more. Your questions matter.

Crypto Assets Analytics is a planned student initiative in cooperation with ITSA, giving students the chance to be a contributing part of the association and develop skills which are unique at student level. Use a unique token database that offers a built-in multi-dimensional token classification framework for enhanced structural market analysis for topics you are interested in.

About ITSA

Cryptographic assets based on the blockchain technology will provide benefits and value to the economy and society as a whole in many different forms. In addition, they are about to represent a recognized institutional asset class. However, current token markets still lack a concrete and holistic framework for the identification, classification and analysis of different token types, leading to economic, technological and regulatory uncertainty and a lack of transparency for all stakeholders.

The International Token Standardization Association (ITSA) e.V. is pursuing the implementation of comprehensive market standards for the global token economy with the aim of eliminating these deficits.

The Berlin-based non-profit International Token Standardization Association (ITSA) already has more than 150 founding members.

Let’s develop the standards for tomorrow’s tokenized economy together!

Feel free to find more details on or have a look at our pitch deck!
