Changing the dynamic
of digital assets.

Introducing DATA, the Digital Asset Trade Association.

A little about us.

The Digital Asset Trade Association (DATA) is the leading advocacy group for Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT). We help shape public policy issues to support the growth of digital assets (utilities), digital identity, smart-contracts and digital currencies.

What We're Made Of

DATA is built on a few guiding principles. Establishing itself in the space, we’re bound to make a splash.

Speaks with a unified, credible voice to media, consumers, and the state, federal, and international policymaking community about the benefits of the industry;

Is recognized by policymakers and the industry as the body setting best practices for the industry; and

Provides certainty for industry actors by positively influencing forthcoming laws and regulatory rule makings, guidance, and interpretations.

How We Do This

We’ve made it simple to understand how DATA gets the job done.

    • Engage with policymakers at the state, federal, and through partnerships at the international levels;
    • Act as a distributed but united voice to promote a regulatory climate that strikes the balance between innovation and consumer protection;
    • Brief and support policymakers, the media and other stakeholders about distributed ledger technology, digital assets, and blockchain technology;
    • Develop first-hand data, statistics, and materials that shape legislation;
    • Provide a monitoring, lobbying, grassroots, and resource body covering all 50 states as well as Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands and Guam
    • Self-regulate the industry by setting best practices and rooting out bad actors to preempt policymakers from doing so more heavy-handedly;
    • Provide global and international regulatory support and identify stakeholders and partners;
    • Train members of the industry to speak to external stakeholders with a single consistent voice
