Asset Reference & Classification (ARC)

ARC offers seamless digital asset data mapping and security mastery, all open-sourced. With Amberdata, unlock a new era of transparent security mastery and integrate financial insights across your organization.

The Digital Asset Transparency Problem

Traditional financial institutions use open-standard security masters to ensure consistency and accuracy in asset identification, streamline operational processes, and facilitate regulatory compliance. However, there are no unified security masters for digital assets. Proprietary digital asset security masters are costly and lack transparency, and inaccurate information and an absence of industry standardization for metadata and asset classifications are major challenges for the entire digital asset class.
