Inventory of Government related DID/VC projects

I've been asked to run a session in Wyoming during the next legislative
Blockchain Task Force on May 6th & 7th on the topic of possible new state
laws & regulations around identity and privacy. As Wyoming has passed 13
different laws related to cryptographic technologies and blockchain in the
last two years, there is a real opportunity to help set the legislative
agenda not only for the Wyoming but also the United States and the rest of
the world.

I need two things:

   - A list of government supported decentralized identity projects
   sponsored by or intended for governments. I have a list of some Sovrin and
   Veres One projects, but am missing quite a few from other companies. In
   particular, there are a lot of companies doing KYC/AML pilots with
   governments that I don't have details on. Seeking a short
   sentence/paragraph of the project, and a picture and link I can put on a
   slide for each.

   - Any thoughts on what regulatory guidance or laws might be appropriate
   for a libertarian privacy-oriented state government?
      - What do people think of Illinois biometric laws, can Wyoming do
      - How do we limit AML regs from requiring money transmitter licenses
      from most every consumer Lightning Node, Proof-of-Stake holder, or
      small-time cryptocurrency miner, and thus forcing them to AML
register all
      transfers and thus violating privacy of users?
      - How to we prevent court requests for seizure of keys and instead
      only demand transfer of digital assets, as keys protect both personal
      information and digital assets.
      - How do we persuade them to consider that personal data doesn't
      easily fall into simple definitions of property, and to be careful about
      regulating PII as property, aka #RightsNotProperty?
      - Other identity/privacy oriented thoughts?
