TRISA Announces 2023 Roadmap

TRISA has released its 2023 roadmap with ambitious goals to grow the network through interoperability, greater automation, improved VASP self-service tools, and strategic partnerships. The roadmap includes a comprehensive product vision statement along with key initiatives.

From Strength to Strength

As the regulatory landscape adapts to the market crises experienced in 2022, TRISA is in a strong position to deliver on its mission of providing an inclusive, open source, decentralized, and secure protocol for the safe and lawful cross-border exchange of digital assets. Now entering its third year and approaching 100 VASPs in 20 jurisdictions on its TestNet and/ or MainNet networks, TRISA is in a position to:

  • Expand its global network of VASPs to advance Travel Rule compliance
  • Build a network of TRISA Service Providers (TSPs) to expand TRISA’s reach
  • Move forward with interoperability with other open Travel Rule solutions
  • Expand its influence with local and global regulators

Product Vision Statement

Building on its 2022 roadmap, TRISA continues its mission to be an open global Travel Rule standard as cryptocurrency adoption and institutional interest grows.

TRISA’s Global Directory Service (GDS) aims to be a robust network that delivers value to member VASPs and TRISA Service Providers. TRISA will succeed due to its proven public key infrastructure (PKI) security model, open source mission, interoperability with other Travel Rule providers, and commitment to privacy-preserving solutions.
