We foster trust by standardising crypto projects
The Tokenization Standards Association (TSA), operating under the brand name BetterTokens, carefully selects projects under clear guidelines. We set up industry standards, ensuring investor protection and helping to fight fraud. Qualified token issuers are identified on Waves.Exchange with a ticker.
Main areas of activity
Setting up tokenization standards

BetterTokens develops due diligence standards for companies and individuals involved in tokenisation of assets, ensuring proper investor protection and compliance with applicable regulations.

Awarding TSA Qualified Issuer Status

An expert committee assesses token issuers’ projects and awards Qualified Issuer Status to those complying with relevant regulatory requirements. Qualified Issuers are identified on Waves.Exchange with a ticker.

Outsourcing review of tokens

We cooperate with centralised and decentralised exchanges who are prepared to outsource the assessment of assets applying for listing to a qualified third party.

Engaging financial regulators

BetterTokens runs a work group dedicated to discussing trends, projects and new initiatives in the blockchain industry with regulators worldwide, including Japan, the United States, Switzerland, Malta, Luxembourg, Slovenia and other nations.

Gain a qualified review
During this phase BetterTokens will review the application and submitted documents for compliance with the application process.
