Digital Asset Taxonomy System: The Broadest Coverage In The Market

Offering the broadest coverage in the market, DATS was designed from the bottom-up to capture the nuances of the digital landscape. The result is a comprehensive taxonomy that classifies assets into 3 Supersectors, 10 Sectors, and 42 Subsectors based on use case, underlying technology, and other differentiators.
