TRISA Announces 2022 Roadmap

TRISA has released its 2022 roadmap with ambitious goals to grow the network through strategic partnerships, greater community engagement, and improved user experience (UX) and interoperability. The roadmap includes a comprehensive product vision statement along with quarterly initiatives.

Product Vision Statement

By the end of 2022, TRISA will be the Travel Rule standard as cryptocurrency adoption becomes mainstream and institutional interest grows. VASPs, regulators, advisors, and developers will know TRISA as the open source, interoperable, decentralized solution for Travel Rule compliance. The Global Directory Service (GDS) will become an integrated directory service system with a streamlined registration and certificate issuance process, an improved user interface, integrations with multiple Travel Rule providers, enhanced documentation, robust security and privacy, and an emerging self-sustaining business model. TRISA will benefit key stakeholders in the community:

  • VASPs will be able to seamlessly register, message, and host their own TRISA node.
  • Regulators will understand TRISA’s implementation and seek TRISA’s thought leadership.
  • Developers will be able to contribute to open source repos and offer technical services.
  • Advisors to VASPs (e.g. consultants, lawyers, etc) will understand the importance of TRISA and advise their clients to register and engage the network.
