Tomicah Tillemann's presentation at the Democratic National Convention about the Blockchain Trust Accelerator was covered in Medium:
On Thursday, July 28, Jamie Smith, Global Chief Communications Officer of The Bitfury Group and co-founder of the Blockchain Trust Accelerator and Dr. Tomicah Tillemann, Director of the Bretton Woods II Initiative at New America and the other co-founder of the Blockchain Trust Accelerator, spoke at the 2016 International Leaders Forum to an audience of more than 400 world leaders at a panel entitled: “Who Will Vote: The Emerging Electorate.”
Smith and Tillemann introduced the panel and challenged the audience to consider the power of Blockchain technology to change the U.S. electoral landscape in 2020.
“The power of Blockchain technology will revolutionize governance all over the world, not just in the United States,” added Dr. Tomicah Tillemann, Director of the Bretton Woods II initiative at New America and board member of Bitfury. “Any country has the opportunity to lead the way in pioneering the use of this technology for governance, and many are already doing so by partnering with the Blockchain Trust Accelerator to lead and create civic Blockchain pilot projects.”
