Blockchain companies that have joined the alliance are Digital Asset, Neo Global Development, Hedera Hashgraph and R3.
Representatives of the IWA commented as follows:
“Companies want to be able to create token-based business models without having a platform technology in mind. For this approach to work, standards are urgently needed around defining what a token is and how its contractual behaviors will work,” said InterWork Alliance President Ron Resnick.
The InterWork Alliance Chairman, Marley Gray, the Principal Architect for Microsoft, noted in his blog post, “The modern concept of tokenized value is not new – it first came from the blockchain space and is (unfortunately) very often thought of in terms of cryptocurrency due to the early Bitcoin and Ethereum blockchain networks. But it was pretty clear to us that there’s no need to tie tokens to blockchains, and that blockchain is really just the first step in what is a much larger, more ambitious approach to looking at how organizations work together.”
IWA is an association of private sector organizations (large and small, technology providers and technology consumers), governments, academics, and civil society at large that share the vision of a world of collaboration built on the digital interchange of tokenized items of value.
