BWII’s Blockchain Accelerator and Tomicah Tillemann were cited in Forbes:

However, Bitfury is working with the bitcoin blockchain both because it is public, for purposes of transparency, and because it is the blockchain that would be most difficult to fraudulently alter. Last summer, the company partnered with New America and the National Democratic Institute to create the Blockchain Trust Accelerator to work on pilot blockchain projects that have a positive social impact; the Georgia pilot is the accelerator’s first.
Trust Accelerator cofounder and New America director of the Bretton Woods II program Tomicah Tillemann said of Georgia’s decision to use the public bitcoin blockchain, “Especially at a moment when there’s a global crisis of confidence in institutions, this is a powerful indication of their commitment to transparency and accountability.”
