The founding director of the Delaware Blockchain Initiative has left the project.
Andrea Tinianow announced the move in a Jan. 2 post on LinkedIn, and confirmed to CoinDesk that she had left the government-backed initiative on Dec. 31. Tinianow added that she has already started in her new role as the chief innovation officer for Global Kompass, a Delaware-based management consultancy firm.
Tinianow indicated her new role will see her consulting for organizations in both the public and private sectors, including on issues related to blockchain tech – particularly in the areas of legal, government and international affairs.
Her departure is notable given Tinianow̵7;s previous involvement in launching the Delaware Blockchain Initiative. That work led to the passage of a new law in Delaware clearing the way for corporations in the state to issue and store shares by way of a distributed ledger.
The legislation was signed into law by Delaware lawmakers last July, a move that came more than a year after former Delaware Governor Jack Markell announced an ambitious blockchain roadmap for the state in May 2016.
